Google Maps adapts to the pandemic with this new function | Digital Trends Spanish

With the massive application of COVID-19 vaccines in various parts of the world, it is possible that many people are preparing to return to the life they had before the pandemic, or at least part of it.

Thus, several companies have announced their plans for employees to return to the offices, with this it is very likely that we will once again see the dreaded crowds of people on the streets and in public transport.

To avoid this, Google Maps has expanded the coverage of a useful tool. It is a function that makes predictions of agglomeration in public transport and is now available in more than 10,000 cities in 100 countries.

In this way, this prediction can inform the user if the train line or bus that is waiting has available seats or if it is already full of people.

Maps can make predictions by combining AI technology, with contributions that people themselves make in the application, as well as historical trends for a particular location.

The tool is so specific that if a person is in New York, for example, they can even see the saturation level of train cars in real time.

Thus, the application will mark those less crowded wagons, so that the user is ready to wait and board at that location.

For now, this feature is part of a pilot test, but Google says it should be available in more cities soon.
