Intel CEO Brian Krzanich says future Americans will drive on roads that are blanketed in self-driving surveillance vehicles.

The emergence of self-driving cars and companies like Tesla has convinced one of the tech industry’s heavyweights that road-ready security cameras are on the horizon. Mr. Krzanich, whose company designs and manufactures computer, networking, and communications technology, sees that as a net benefit for society.

“We’ll have to put limitations on it,” the businessman told CNBC on Thursday. “We’ll have to encrypt that data and make sure I can’t tell that it’s John’s [car] necessarily. I think there will be rules and new areas we’ll have to explore, but the amount of social good that can come from that far outweighs those concerns.”

Mr. Krzanich said one example of mobile surveillance’s utility will be its ability to quickly identify wanted criminals or suspects for law enforcement agencies.

“I always say that the cars are going to be out there looking, so the next time an Amber alert comes up and they’re looking for a license plate, the cars should be able to find that license plate quite rapidly,” Mr. Krzanich said.
