UBER MAY HAVE A WAY TO KNOW IF YOU’RE DRUNKJune 12, 2018
Uber wants to know when you’re uber drunk!
Despite the fact that many Uber rides are taken while intoxicated, Uber has officially filed a patent for a system that would detect if a passenger was inebriated.
The patent states that it would examine “data input accuracy, data input speed, interface interaction behavior, device angle, or walking speed.”
It will also take into account the day of the week, time and location you are requesting to be picked up from to conclude its findings.
Uber highlights its alleged good intentions with the data in its patent request stating that the info would be used to pair riders with specific, equipped drivers, disable pooling and ensure that drop-off/pickup areas are “well lit and easy to access.”
But we have one concern: surge drunk pricing?!!
Are you for or against this new Uber technology?
