A Jaguar I-Pace is used for this effort, and it will see a roof mount for the large Street View camera, along with a new rear window glass for the wiring and redesigned interior gear for the sensor controls. The visual system was last updated in 2017 to provide higher resolution images while being less bulky. Google also took advantage of the redesign to switch from Subaru cars to Hyundai hatchbacks in the United States.
This white car will be branded “Street View on Google Maps” along with links and a phrase explaining its purpose to the public:
In addition to capturing 360 ° images, this electric car measures air quality at a stereoscopic level. Visit g.co/earth/airquality and dublincityairandnoise.ie to learn more
The vehicle will also be fitted with Aclima mobile air sensors that record nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, as well as fine particles (PM2.5). Meanwhile, Google is partnering with Dublin City Council on the Environmental Insights Explorer tool that provides local air quality data.
Google and the Dublin City Council hope that access to this data will help scientists, researchers and policymakers in their study of air quality, and encourage people to make modest but informed daily changes to help. to improve it.
Dubbed “Air View Dublin”, this electric Street View car will be on the road for 12 months collecting this data and updating Google Maps. This is because Alphabet’s Waymo has a large drive for the same vehicle but is equipped with various autonomous driving technologies.
