Google Maps will report the location of speed breakers

Published

on


Speed breakers will be mapped on Google Maps as an application, as the road department and traffic management department determined in their meeting. The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has chosen to provide information on speed breakers as an application on Google Maps in order to help citizens and the government. There are two significant catches: Google Maps may soon be the first app to get speed bump data. Limited availability per region is the first drawback.

By working with digital firms, Pune officials in India may be able to connect Google Maps and other solutions to a speed bump location database. The authorities have been searching for a means to include speed bump information in navigation apps. The second challenge lies in determining how the data will be displayed on Google Maps. Google Maps may merely indicate the position of the speed bump on the map, as opposed to bombarding the vehicle with traffic danger alerts as Waze does.

By alerting users to impending speed bumps via the screen, Waze may provide a more beneficial integration. These lane markings, which are meant to restrict speeding in particular zones, frequently result in collisions due to factors like low visibility. The PMC has taken the initiative to provide Google Maps with the exact position of each speed breaker, seeing the necessity of solving this issue. The software will alert users when there are impending speed limit signs, giving them enough time to adjust and reduce their pace.

The majority of regular people, taxi drivers, and other ride-sharing businesses use Google Maps, according to PMC. In addition, a lot of contemporary automobiles have GPS or a comparable mapping system installed. The PMC wants to stop speed breakers from causing accidents and bumpy trips by using this technology. Although the formal implementation schedule for the new feature is currently unknown, it is obvious that additional Indian cities may choose to implement it before it is potentially implemented worldwide, if it proves beneficial.

No More Public “Likes”: X (Formaly Twitter) Protects User Privacy

Published

By


Social media platform X (Formerly Twitter) is adding an extra layer of security as it says goodbye to “like” crises. The likes on a post will no longer be visible.

X has decided to keep all users’ preference data private, regardless of whether they have a premium subscription or not. Now the tons of likes a post receives will no longer be visible. This could reduce the anxiety and competition associated with public-like counts. 

The reason behind this change appears to be to reduce negativity and encourage user engagement. This comes after the platform was criticized for exposing politicians and public figures who “liked” inappropriate content. Initially, the brand introduced an option to hide the “Likes” tab as an advantage for X Premium subscribers last year. In a recent tweet, a notification popup and it suggested that the social network will make likes private for everyone by the end of this week. 

The new feature eliminates one of the reasons for signing up for a premium subscription since last year the brand’s advertising revenue suffered a rejection, and, to fix its financial crisis, it has introduced two new subscription phases. The Premium+ plan costs $16 per month and removes ads from their timelines, whereas the other is an affordable plan that costs $3 per month; this does not include the site’s blue checkmark. 

Apart from this, it could make the platform more secure and safer and a more welcoming place for self-expression. However, it will be interesting to see whether this new twerk will have a positive effect or if it will push more users to consider the multiple subscription plans on offer.
