Google Maps with Visual Positioning System

Authors(1) :-Samrudhi R Kaware

The emerging trends that is Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning Google have developed a navigation tool by which the location near by our route is been visualized .Many of the new features are based on the AI and other future technologies as Google aims to make these applications more efficient and productive for users. For instance, Google Maps is using Augmented Reality (AR) technology to help guide you to your destination. When you pull up direction on Google Maps, you can look through the camera and get turn-by-turn directions while viewing the actual street. The app will also orient you and verify your position using local landmarks such as buildings and shops viewed through the camera. Google calls the technology VPS, or visual positioning system.
