Google Introduces Street View Trike

By Tyler Sutherland

Google is stepping up its game by introducing the Street View Trike — which just like the car, has a camera attached to take photos of everything in its path. The idea is to capture images of places that vehicles are not permitted. Areas like parks, boardwalks, pedestrian streets, etc. are now no longer off limits to Google’s technology.

According to Google Canada, the trike will make its rounds based on user requests. Therefore, if you want to see it roam around The Forks Market for example, you have to let them know.


Google Street View as a whole went live in Canada earlier this month, but its Winnipeg imagery has yet to be turned on.
