Project Tango - Google smartphone to Map The world

                       

Google has engineered a Android smartphone that may learn and map the world around it. The device comes from a brand new initiative known as Project Tango, and it's able to get the phone into developers' hands to examine what the technology is capable of. Google says that the phone can learn the dimension of rooms and areas simply by being moved around within them — walking around your sleeping room, for instance, would facilitate the phone learn the form of your home. The hope is that by making a strong map of the world, Google's phone may eventually offer precise directions to any given purpose that has to be reached.

It's AN bold project, however that ought to be no surprise given it's coming from Google- The Tech Gaint. 

Tango comes out of Advanced Technology and Projects group — one of the few pieces of Motorola that Google has opted to hang on to rather than sell. "The goal of Project Tango is to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion

Google has two hundred devices that it's getting ready to present resolute developers who need to make mapping tools, games, and new algorithms that cash in of the phone's sensors, and it expects to send all of them out by Mid of March.

The Tango devices work by using a motion tracking camera and a depth sensor built into their backsides. While being moved around, the sensors will detect their orientation and what's in front of them, using that data to build out a 3D map of their surroundings. While the basic goal is to create detailed indoor maps, Google's distribution of developer devices speaks to the other possibilities it sees coming out of this type of data: it suggests that Tango could be used to create more realistic augmented reality games or to assist the visually impaired when they're navigating an unfamiliar area.

Google stresses that the technology is still in early stages, but it still sees it as on the way to reaching millions of people down the road.
