Satnavs and Google Maps to be updated in readiness for driverless cars

Still Waters

Recommended Posts

Satnavs and Google Maps will soon include live data on road closures, parking restrictions and temporary speed limits in England under a UK government scheme aimed to ease drivers’ pain and pave the way for driverless cars.

Councils will be ordered to digitise all traffic regulation orders (TROs), short-term traffic measures such as temporary speed limits or road closures.

Many TROs are kept on paper and not updated automatically on digital systems, meaning they are sometimes missing from satnav systems.

On Monday, the roads minister, Guy Opperman, will announce that the data will be uploaded to a central database and made freely available online for satnavs and mapping services. It will also include the location of parking spaces.
