As autonomous car technology continues to move forward, manufacturers of the vehicles are expected to add more safety-monitoring systems, The New York Times reports. Past attempts at monitoring driver and passenger activity have raised privacy issues among consumers; however, companies such as General Motors and BMW do not collect driver-monitoring information from the cameras and sensors installed in their autonomous vehicles. Privacy concerns may become more prevalent as self-driving cars become more popular. Manufacturers will have to detect when people enter or exit the vehicle, as well as the identity of the driver, with the added possibility all the information ends up online.
