The automotive landscape is changing and TomTom is at the very frontier of innovation. Together with OEM and Tier 1 partners, we are working on cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems.
OEMs are working with TomTom to enable full vehicle autonomy in the not too distant future. Before this ambition is fully realised, drivers can already enjoy improved safety with intermediate levels of vehicle automation. This would not be possible without TomTom technologies providing the necessary content.
TomTom offers essential building blocks for ADAS through its
Real-Time Maps and Connected Services. These components allow for predictive and smarter decision making, and increased safety and efficiency for drivers. For example, our maps contain highly accurate lane-level information, such as road geometry, lane markings and traffic signs.
Road geometry allows for a smoother ride, lower fuel consumption and automated subsystems, leading to more humanised driving decisions. One specific success story from TomTom maps was the IPPC project by Daimler, which led to over 5% reduction in fuel consumption.
Fusing governmental, community and professional sources has created highly accurate information on lane markings, traffic signs and speed restrictions. The latter is a vital component for NCAP-required “Intelligent Speed Assist” to help drivers maintain the correct speed.
