Google Maps revealed on their blog that they are allowing developers to use their AI and allowing them to make more augmented reality games like the Pokemon which was released 2 years ago, it was a huge success bringing change and revolutionizing the gaming industry.
The functionality is now available in Tokyo, Mexico City, New York, Boston, London, and Sydney, with additional cities hopefully added in future updates. Once you tap on Options, you will find wheelchair accessible under the Routes section. In city centres, buses and trains, often the best way to get around presents a challenge for people who use wheelchairs or with other mobility needs. After that select the "Wheelchair accessible" toggle.
The company this week announced that it will highlight wheelchair accessible routes within the Google Maps app's transit navigation screen.
And in the case of helping people seeking wheelchair access for transit travel, it appears the Local Guides program is doing some meaningful work.
By adding this feature Google Maps just made so easy the movement of physical disabled people, because anyone with a physical disability knows it well that it is not that simple.
A statement from Google said: 'When you select this option, Google Maps will show you a list of possible routes that take mobility needs into consideration'.
Google points out that this feature can be handy not for the wheelchair user but with anyone with limited mobility, no matter if it's because of an injury, age or a baby stroller. The company's efforts to upload street view imagery for transit stations around the world could also make it easier to introduce the wheelchair accessible filter in new cities.
