Google Maps Live View uses augmented reality (AR) to help you find your way even more easily. This shared goal led Flughafen Zürich AG and Google Switzerland to launch a project back in mid-2018 to improve intuitive navigation "from curb to gate". Recordings made of the interior of the airport, as well as exterior areas of The Circle, are now being used in the Indoor Live View function of Google Maps. Using Google Maps Live View, the recordings are compared in the background with the user's camera images to show the correct route in augmented reality view.
Live View uses AR cues and is powered by a technology called global localization that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to scan tens of billions of Street View recordings to understand your orientation. Thanks to new advancements that help determine the precise altitude and placement of objects inside a building, Live View can now also be used inside buildings such as airports. Live View can help users find the nearest lift, escalators, the right gate, the platform, baggage claim, check-in or the ticket counter, ATMs and shops. Arrows and accompanying directions point them the right way.
