Google is sending a pedicab-like vehicle with an 8-foot (2.44-meter)-high camera rolling around the walkways at the University of Pennsylvania to collect 360-degree views for the “Street View” feature of Google Maps.

The California-based company has been using car-mounted cameras to capture images from roadways.

The human-powered tricycle will cover pedestrian-only areas like college campuses and parks as well as hiking and bicycling trails.

Officials say the photos will allow prospective students to get a good feel for the campus. They will let incoming students map out routes to classes and let alumni fondly remember their school days.

Street View, now in more than 100 cities worldwide, has faced some privacy complaints from individuals and institutions that have been photographed.
