Google uses camel to record desert images in UAE

To record images of the Liwa desert in the United Arab Emirates, Google decided to improvise: instead of using cars or backpacks, the Google Street View camera was adapted to work on a camel.

“To bring this stunning desert to Street View, we shaped the Trekker on a camel, which collected images of how he walked. Using camels for collection allowed us to collect authentic images and minimize our interaction in this fragile environment ”, published the company.

You can see how Google attached the camera to the camel in this video below:
