Phones of Venice tourists will be tracked

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"In a bid to reduce overcrowding from tourism, local officials in Venice have announced that they will begin tapping into holidaymakers' mobile phones to keep track of visitor numbers.

"The new scheme will employ a combination of wifi and camera technology to analyse the numbers of visitors to the busy city.

"A total of 34 sensors installed across the city will detect the silhouettes of visitors passing beneath them, with the ability to identify whether the person is a child or an adult."

shut off your phone, unless making a call, wear  a hat with ears,  as far as camera is concerned you are a child
