According to a “Forbes” report, now the government of Brazil is making use of the popular navigation applications to discover information about the passengers and drivers on the roads. According to the Brazilian government, the goal is to manage traffic on the roads and between pedestrians using Waze, the Google-owned automobile navigation application, and Moovit, a public transportation navigation application. The Brazilian Government is also considering tracking a cycling application called Strava to monitor how bikers are traversing the city.

    Google To Acquire Waze For $1.3 Billion 

    Google To Acquire Waze For $1.3 Billion

    Google has reportedly come into agreement with Israeli social GPS startup Waze to acquire it for $1.3 billion. The deal is dependent on a Due Diligence inspection that has only just begun, so it is still subject to change.

    This report comes after months of reports suggesting Waze would be acquired by Facebook for $1 billion and by Apple for$750 million. Both alleged talks are said to have fallen through.

    Google, which has an office in Israel, has already made two more modest acquisitions in the country. In 2010, Google acquired personalized Website gadget developer Labpixies for $25 million and interactive video-clip developer Quiksee for $10 million.

    Report: Facebook And Waze Hit Dead End In Acquisition Talks 

    Report: Facebook And Waze Hit Dead End In Acquisition TalksAfter earlier reports suggested that social network giant Facebook is in talks to acquire Israeli GPS company Waze for up to $1 billion, AllThingsD now reports that the deal will not go through.

    AllThingsD reports that the talks dissolved in recent days, according to sources, due in part to conflicts over whether or not the Waze team — which is predominantly based in Israel — would move over to the United States and fold itself into Facebook’s Menlo Park, Calif., headquarters, among other reasons.
