Google Street View displays scans taken from a fleet of Chevrolet Cobalts in North America, Opel Astras in Europe, Holden Astras in Australia and New Zealand, Toyota Prius cars in Japan, Fiat Stilos in Brazil, Toyota Yarises in South Africa and Pontiac G5s in Mexico. Areas not accessible by automobile like pedestrian areas, narrow streets, alleys and ski resorts are sometimes covered by Google Trikes (tricycles) or a snowmobile. On each of these cars (and tricycles) there are nine directional cameras for the 360° views, GPS units for positioning, three laser range scanners for the measuring of up to 50 meters 180° in the front of the vehicle.
