Google’s omnipresence

This month, Google announced the creation of Sidewalk Labs, a company that will focus on improving city living by “developing new technologies to deal with urban issues like cost of living, transportation, and energy usage”. The company will be headed by Dan Doctoroff, former NY Deputy Mayor of Economic Development and Bloomberg CEO. The combination of the self-driving vehicle, Google maps, the company’s involvement in insurance and the individual online data that Google possesses makes us wonder how Sidewalk Labs will position itself in the urban mobility arena.
