Aim is to allow car makers to improve safety and comfort in automated driving
TomTom and Elektrobit (EB) have partnered to demonstrate an ‘electronic horizon’ system for driver assistance functions and autonomous vehicles combining TomTom’s Autostream and EB’s robinos Predictor at Mobile World Congress.
AutoStream is a ‘cloud to car’ map delivery system which streams the latest map data from the TomTom Cloud to the vehicle. EB robinos Predictor is an in-vehicle electronic horizon solution that uses this map data to provide highly accurate and up-to-date information about the road ahead for predictive driver assistance functions. The aim is to allow car makers to improve safety and comfort in automated driving.
“When it comes to automated driving, reliability is paramount. We are delighted to work alongside our long-time partner, TomTom, in delivering a state-of-the-art solution that will enable car makers to equip their vehicles with more precise automated driving systems by leveraging highly precise maps,” said Martin Schleicher, executive vice president, head of business management, Elektrobit.
The joint project will combine TomTom AutoStream and EB robinos Predictor to establish an easy-to-use demonstrator, evaluation and development platform for the automotive market.
“Our collaboration with Elektrobit allows us to power automated driving functions with the latest high definition map, while reducing complexity and time to market for our customers,” added Willem Strijbosch, head of autonomous driving, TomTom.
