Everybody has used the GPS. The one to-go feature for all your navigating problems. Global positioning system has been successful in tracking the outdoor objects on a map(i.e. buildings, shops etc) but what about the indoors (i.e tracking inside a shop/building)

This is where VPS comes into picture. Google released concept of new technology called Visual Positioning Service,which uses augmented reality on mobile phones and tablets for navigation.

While the GPS will help you reach the door of the the shop, VPS helps you in locating the exact position of the items you want to buy from the shop.

VPS makes use of machine learningcomputer vision and mapping coordinates.
