What3Words

The problem of finding people or an address is solved thanks to an app that you will find in all-new Mercedes vehicles.  The app is WHAT THREE WORDS. what3words is a really simple way to talk about location.

 

WHAT3WORDS

WHAT3WORDS have assigned each 3m square in the world a unique 3-word address that will never change.

For example, FILLED.COUNT.SOAP marks the exact entrance to what3words’ London headquarters.

3-word addresses are easy to say and share and are as accurate as GPS coordinates.

WHAT3WORDS has a vision is to become a global standard for communicating location. People use what3words to find their tents at festivals, navigate to B&Bs, and to direct emergency services to the right place.  The phone app allows you to find yourself on a map and give people your 3-word address and this has many more far-reaching.

Check out this address.  SEARCHERS.DIBBLE.ONWARDS.  Just type those three words into your navigation system in your Mercedes and it will take you to a specific 3-meter square in the Grand Canyon

So, you are in the middle of the top step in front of the Lincoln Memorial.  The address IMAGE. BALLOTS. LOCK.  Send that to your friends and they will find you.  Now you are obviously not able to drive up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial but you can use your smartphone to complete the journey once you have parked your Mercedes.

I have tried this in the Mercedes GLC 43, but what other vehicles will we see this coming to in the future you ask?  Ford and TATA Motors which includes Jaguar and Land Rover for now with more on the way.

The phone app allows you to find yourself on a map and give people your 3-word address and this has many more far-reaching applications.  Imagine emergency services being able to find a missing hiker or someone’s location just by using what3words.

This technology may be built into every car of the future.
