TomTom Enables Autonomous Driving
The combination of TomTom’s HD Map and RoadDNA, represents the most accurate and robust technology to provide information about a vehicle’s precise lane location and the road ahead.
These products can be used by partners to develop a range of automated driving features, such as advanced lane guidance, active safety systems, and hands-free driving.
TomTom believes that the automomous driving arena will soon become a complex ecosystem of many different cross industry players and technologies. For this reason, we see this as a great opportunity to apply our product offering, bring innovative business models and consolidate our partnerships in the future.
Autonomous Driving will completely transform not only the way we commute but will boost safety, comfort and efficiency of vehicles to a level beyond imagination. For that many high tech components need to work together in self-driving vehicles. TomTom offers critical elements such as:
