A good phrase to start this article would be: let each reader say what car they have and TechMarkup will tell them which route to take. This is what Google Maps It has just been implemented in 40 European countries, including Spain, the United Kingdom or France (these are some of the countries that have been confirmed on the list of eco routes declared unpublished).

For this reason, the system Googlebased on a model of electric vehicle, diesel, gasoline or hybrid, will provide data to consume less energy.

This is not new to Google Maps. This initiative was implemented last year in the United States and Canada. An experimental project whose mission is to reduce CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. In this first step, Google’s algorithm aggregated data provided by the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).

This is a way to train the system machine learning of the platform, along with user-provided data on the most popular routes and the most popular car models in the hunting grounds.

For Europe, where this Google Maps option launched a few weeks ago in Germany, the tech company pulled data from the European Environment Agency. In fact, the company technological chose the best time to implement this measure in Europe.

With energy restrictions, which seem to be the trend for this winter, under pressure from Russia for the invasion of Ukraine, the continent is experiencing the greatest energy crisis in its history.

How the Google Maps algorithm works

On the one hand, it is necessary to take into account the vehicle model information. As well as the most popular models in each field to be able to give more precise information.

Next, you will analyze the data regarding the elevation of the roads, traffic, tolls, as well as the stops on the requested routes. In addition, information will be provided on the recommended constant speed for calculating fuel or energy savings, in the case of electric cars.

It must be said that the route provided by this ecological model of Google Maps may not match the fastest speed. When this happens, it will differentiate over time and save. Then all you have to do is choose what suits your needs.

In determining performance by engine type, the track pattern must be taken into account. In this way, the combustion vehicle will prioritize the highway. The electric or hybrid car will opt for urban roads. In the second case, it also provides information on the available charging stations as well as the charger with which it is equipped.

This new option of ecoroutes in Google Maps can be updated in the app settings and will be available progressively over the next few days.
