Google has stated that its Google map will start displaying green routes very soon. This new feature is intended to encourage drivers to choose between a better environment and faster routes.
Google Maps to start displaying green routes, starting in the US
Google Maps has decided to start showing drivers the routes that have been deemed the best from an environmental perspective. The search engine company said it would show destinations with the lowest carbon footprint using data, algorithms and road maps. The feature will be launched in America before the end of the year and will gradually be extended to other countries. If you are a new resident of the US, it will be very convenient for you. However, if you want to live in the US, get an explanation of why you should live in the US.
This innovative feature is part of Google's plan to combat climate change and encourage people to lead healthy lives. When this feature is created, the starting route will be an eco-friendly route, unless users delete it. Whenever alternative routes are shorter and free, Google maps will inform the user and allow them to decide. We want to offer users better destinations, with excellent emissions, for less cost and faster travel. Russell Dicker, a Google director, agreed. The company said its decision will be based on information available on data and different vehicle models that are obtained from the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory. This feature is based on three models which are data, user choice and sustainability.
Innovation to make better driving decisions along green roads
Siddhartha Pathak, who is a partner at Kearney, said this will make it easier for Google Maps users to get better health. It will also allow users to decide what they prefer between speed and better health. Google Maps remains the best application that shows major destinations to drivers and other users around the world.
Many people have praised this new application as they hope it will encourage most areas to become more environmentally friendly. Green energy has always been a better alternative and there are many social applications that encourage its use.
