Apple mapping vehicles are to appear on Irish road over the coming weeks.

The technology company is updating its mapping software and as a result, special vehicles packed with technology will be driving around the country gathering new data.

“Vehicle surveys may use equipment mounted on the outside of vehicles as well as iPhones, iPads, or other devices inside of vehicles,” Apple said in a statement.

“We may periodically revisit and re-collect data in some of those locations in an effort to maintain a high-quality, up-to-date map.”

The gathering will take place from May 13th until July 31st and will lead to better navigation, richer detail and more accurate information, Apple says.

The company says it is committed to protecting user privacy as it conducts the data collection.

“For example, we will censor faces and license plates on images that are published in Look Around,” the company said.

The company has already rolled out new maps for the US, UK, France, Italy and Germany, among others.
