Google Maps to Take You on Eco-friendly Routes

News

The latest update by Google Maps states that it will soon be introducing over 100 AI-powered improvements to Google Maps to provide accurate, up-to-date information. Google is also in the process of introducing a new feature that will prompt drivers to take eco-friendly routes, which produce the lowest amount of carbon emissions. Factors such as traffic and slopes have been taken into account while creating this update on Google Maps.

Google claims that the map will show the route with the lowest carbon footprint when it has approximately the same estimated time of arrival (ETA) as the fastest route. In cases where the eco-friendly route could significantly increase ETA, the application will let you compare the relative CO2 impact between routes so you can choose your route accordingly.
