Way back in 2017, I wrote about tech companies working together to create 360-degree police surveillance vehicles complete with facial recognition. This has now become a reality.

EU Data Protection Authority decides against fining Tesla after they altered their "sentry mode" cameras:
When the Tesla is parked, the security camera will automatically turn on when it senses a threat or someone walking too close to the car. "Many Teslas parked on the street were often filming everyone who came near the vehicle, and these images were being saved for a very long time. If every car were to do that, we’d have a situation where no one could go anywhere in public without being watched," said DPA board member Katja Mur in a statement.
