Google Maps AR Navigation

December 29, 2019

Now Google Maps ads Augmented Reality Directions option in Smartphones.

google maps have added an augmented-reality feature called live view to its android and ios apps. This uses your phone’s camera to superimpose arrows and other navigation details over live images of the real world to help you find your way around.

Google Maps new “Global Localization” is a form of augmented reality that combines street view data with GPS position and your phone’s camera to determine exactly where you are and what direction you are facing.

Google Maps AR is designed to let you use augmented reality to help you navigate when walking. It uses the camera on the rear of the phone to identify where you are, superimposing direction and details on the display, rather than just presenting you with a map.

AI identifies what you can see, while the GPS helps put in position on the map. Ultimately, Google Maps AR helps get around that problem of not knowing which way to walk – because the AR can then point in the right direction so you’re heading the right way.
