Bing calls it "Streetside"
My wife saw a Bing car pass our house the same day I saw one on my commute. I pulled this from their FAQ page:
Q.
What technology will you use to collect street level pictures?
A.
The sensor system mounted on the car provide the ability to capture a 360 degree picture and support the collection of street level imagery and 3D information. It includes 3 main components:
  • Positioning sensors (an integrated GPS/IMU unit) which ensure all data collected is accurately georeferenced;
  • Panoramic cameras which provide the ability to capture street level imagery in a 360° field of view;
  • Rotating laser scanners which collects over a million data points every second to help create things like 3D representations of the environment.

Желаю радости всегда
И настроенья бодрого,
Не знать печали никогда
И в жизни всего доброго.
Никогда не унывать,
Не видеть огорчения,
И дни с улыбкой начинать,
Как в этот День Рождения!
