A new ‘neighbourhood watch’ sensor device that can track traffic on local streets has been unveiled.
Flock’s sensor logs the number plate of each car that drives into a residential street, for use by ‘neighbourhood leaders’.
This information could come in useful in the event of thefts, break-ins and other disturbances.
Residents of monitored neighbourhoods can opt-out of being tracked, but visitors cannot – an issue which raises privacy concerns.
