Video footage of Amazon drivers being monitored by their employers has leaked onto Reddit in recent days, highlighting the extent to which the e-commerce giant monitors those who deliver packages to Prime consumers.

The surveillance footage, which has been described as a Big Brother-like apparatus that allows Amazon to keep an eye on its drivers, was filmed by the Netradyne camera system installed in Amazon’s delivery vans.

The system uses artificial intelligence to detect when a driver is yawning, talking on the phone or not wearing a seat belt.

An Amazon warehouse employee sitting behind a desk used a cell phone to record dashcam surveillance footage of a driver who is seen leaning out the window to talk to a customer.

The surveillance footage, which was found on Reddit by news site Vice, shows a glowing green box tracking the movements of drivers.

The monitor also shows how fast the Amazon delivery vehicle is moving, in this case 0 MPH.

After the driver opens the door, a small French bulldog jumps into the van.

See it, Joey? someone in the warehouse is heard saying in the footage that he is not on camera.

Little visitor.

Is that a dog? said Joey, who is not even seen in the footage.

Yes, I just jumped in, said the first voice.

The dog jumps into the driver’s lap. The driver then strokes the animal for about 15 seconds.

What is he, a Frenchman? Joey asked.

Joey and the other person then engaged in a debate about what breed of dog it was.

Amazon’s carriers are under constant surveillance, raising privacy concerns.

He had a little guest with him today, said the first voice.

Another unidentified person intervened: Yes, I see it.

The footage was posted on the subreddit (r/AmazonDSPDrivers), a channel dedicated to memes, videos, and images that showcase a day in the life of an Amazon delivery driver.

Redditors reacted with shock and disgust to the footage, with one commenting that it was creepy AF.

You just people watch all day Wtf dystopian Bs is this, wrote another.

Is this China? Monitor every single thing? another Redditor wrote.

Funny how the manager is sitting around eating donuts and not leading the way. Don’t they have cameras?

Another video that was posted to the subreddit last week showed dashcam footage of the surveillance system flagging a driver for a stop sign infraction.

The video, titled Bruh!!! Stop sign infraction such as ????, shows the driver to make a legal left turn just before an intersection equipped with a stop sign.

Another leaked video shows an Amazon driver approaching another vehicle on a narrow one-lane road forcing the other driver to back up.

The other vehicle ended up in a ditch on the side of the road.

Simone Griffin, an Amazon spokesperson, told The Post: Netradyne cameras are used to keep drivers and the communities they deliver safe.

Delivery service partners have access to the Netradyne portal where onboard cameras automatically upload video content when a security incident occurs, Griffin said.

Delivery service partners can choose to share video footage with their employees.

However, for privacy reasons, posting the content externally is a violation of program policies, Griffin said.
