The Karlsruhe energy supplier EnBW wants to carry out video surveillance on Europaplatz due to a lack of police authority. According to their own statements, no personal data is collected and stored with artificial intelligence that is supposed to recognize behaviour patterns, the number of people and movements.

The aim is to implement a monitoring infrastructure in which the EnBW employee is in close contact with the police.
