Google announced a new feature for electric vehicle owners that uses artificial intelligence to sort thousands of public charging stations while finding the best route.
The level of technology needed to make this type of planning effective is indicative of the electric vehicle charging mess in America.
Google acknowledged in a blog post that route planning for an electric vehicle can be a problem.
An electric vehicle owner needs to find the right charging station within the appropriate range, and it must also include the specific type of component his vehicle needs.
The new feature works with EVs, which include Google’s original Android Automotive system as the primary operating system.
At the moment, the only two Android Automotive models are the Polestar 2 and the Volvo XC40 Recharge, but Google says more is on the way.
