Monetizing street-level imagery while complying with data protection laws

The growing number of street-facing cameras on vehicles enables the acquisition of vast volumes of images. These images can unlock new business cases such as automated litter detection, tracking road asset inventory and detecting road damage. Data protection laws (GDPR, CCPA, PIPL) are one hurdle to overcome before being able to process images that contain personal data such as faces and license plates. We’ll share what we have learned about technical and legal challenges when implementing automated image and video anonymization, to protect people’s privacy while creating new business value for your company.
