(Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) said on Tuesday it launched a technology-aided system in some of its facilities to maintain social distancing, called â€˜Distance Assistantâ€™.
The system applies artificial intelligence and machine learning to the camera footage in buildings to help identify high-traffic areas and implement additional measures to improve social distancing, Amazon said.
