This is how Google Map was tricked
Simone Weckert, who lives in Berlin, Germany, has fooled Google Maps. Simone placed about a hundred smartphones in a large trolley to trick Google Maps. Simon turned on Google Map in all these mobile phones. Taking this tolly, Simon reached an empty road and started walking slowly. Google Map tracked the location of all these smartphones and showed the jam on the road. Because of this, most of the people who were walking by looking at the Google Map, did not go towards that road. According to Simone, we are still making mistakes in understanding the relationship between technology and society. It is surprising how technology is changing the society. He believes that still new technology has not been understood by us properly.
This is how the map tells the traffic condition
This navigation service of Google is quite popular all over the world. It guides users to their destination by providing accurate traffic and route information. Red, blue and yellow colors are used in India to tell the traffic condition in Google Maps. Red means strong jam, yellow for proper movement and blue for absolutely clear road. Often due to road blocks, Google re-routes navigation in Maps so that users can reach their destination through the best route.
