New feature starting at Zurich Airport


The innovations include the Live View for interiors: With the help of augmented reality and street view recordings, Live View now also navigates through airports, train stations and shopping centers. Zurich Airport will be the first airport in the world to offer the feature in the next few months. To Stefan Gross, Chief Commercial Officer of Flughafen Zürich AG: “We are pleased to work with Google Maps and to be the first airport to offer our passengers and customers Indoor Live View. We believe that the new feature will help our guests to get on with the Zurich Airport easier to find your way around, as well as providing us with a seamless travel experience. ”

Navigates with Live View for interiors

We all know the moment when you suddenly realize you are walking in the wrong direction by mistake – Live View uses AR cues to avoid exactly that. Live View is powered by a technology called Global Localization, which uses AI to scan tens of billions of Street View shots to understand what to look for on the go. Thanks to new developments that help to determine the exact height and placement of objects within a building, Live View can now also be used in buildings where you can quickly lose track of things: in airports, train stations and shopping centers, writes Google. Live View can help you find the nearest elevator and escalators, the correct gate, platform, baggage claim, check-in or ticket counter, restrooms, ATMs, and more. Arrows and accompanying hints show you the right way.

Plan ahead with more information about weather and air quality

With the new map details on the weather, you can quickly see the current and predicted temperature and weather conditions in an area – you will never have to stand in the rain without an umbrella again. What a pity. And the new map detail on air quality shows how clean (or polluted) the air is – information that is particularly helpful for allergy sufferers. Data from partners such as The Weather Company, and the Central Pollution Board flow into these map details, which will be rolled out on Android and iOS in the coming months. The map detail on the weather will be available worldwide, the information on air quality will initially be introduced in Australia, India and the USA, with other countries to follow.
