    Anand Mahindra, the chairman of the Mahindra Group and a recipient of the Padma Award, revealed that Mahindra Logistics ordered a three-wheeler for a Tech Mahindra initiative that planned to create and license street view data to Google, a US-based search engine.

    He tweeted, “A Mahindra three-wheeler commissioned by Mahindra Logistics for a project by Tech Mahindra to build and license street view data to Google. That’s what I call group synergy!”

    Through a collaboration with Tech Mahindra and the mapping company Genesys International, Google has launched Street View on Google Maps in India. Since Genesys International and Tech Mahindra will also possess image data, Google won’t be the exclusive owner of this gold mine of information.

    Google will only own the information gathered from Street View and Maps users

    “Street View will help people navigate and explore new corners of the country and the world in a more visual and accurate way, enabling them to fully experience what it’s like to be in these places, right from their phone or computer,” the company said at the launch of the new feature.

    In 10 cities, including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune, Nashik, Ahmednagar, Vadodara, and Amritsar, Google asserted that Street View would be accessible. By the end of 2022, the list will include 50 additional cities. In addition, Google is making Street View API available to national developers.

    Beginning in Bengaluru, Google Maps will now display information on speed restrictions that has been shared by traffic authorities. “Google will further expand this to Kolkata and Hyderabad in partnership with local traffic authorities,” said Miriam Karthika Daniel, vice president of Google Maps Experiences.
