It turns out that Google is working on an important feature for its Maps service. In the near future, the navigation application will start to create the most economical routes according to the engine types of the cars. So how?
Maps, one of the most popular services of the US-based technology giant Google, will be updated in the near future and will have a feature that will please many drivers. The feature, which is currently in the codes of the Android beta version of Google Maps with the code 11.39, will enable the creation of routes according to the engine type of the vehicles.
As a matter of fact, Google Maps created the shortest route by default, thus saving time. However, Google engineers seem to understand that not every vehicle will save in the same way, depending on the engine type. As such, developers will begin to create separate routes for diesel, gasoline, hybrids and, of course, electric cars.
Users will determine the engine type and type
The new feature detected in the codes of the Android beta version of the Google Maps application will ask the user for the engine type and type. After the user enters the engine information of the car he owns into the application, he will start to get special routes for his vehicle. So how will this feature work? What will Google pay attention to when creating different routes for different engine types ?
Although there is no official statement made by Google, we can more or less guess how the feature will work. This feature should be explained as follows; Gasoline and diesel cars consume more fuel when they stop and start. As it stands; The best saving method for vehicles of this engine type is to drive at a constant speed without stopping and starting. However, this is not the case with hybrid vehicles. Most hybrid cars convert friction energy into electrical energy when braking and charging the battery. Here’s the thing. Stop-and-go for a hybrid engine will save fuel most of the time. It seems like Google will take all this into account and direct the user to the path where they will save the most.
