  • TomTom ADAS Map supports over five million level 1 and 2 automated vehicles
  • Growth of the TomTom ADAS Map overtakes the industry as one of the most widely used automated driving technologies
  • TomTom HD map from three of the world’s top five automotive groups for their most advanced automated vehicles

AMSTERDAM, January 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – TomTom (TOM2), the specialist in geolocation technologies, today announced new milestones for its advanced maps used in automated driving technologies (AD).

More than five million SAE Level One and Level Two Automated Vehicles (AVs) sold by automakers in North America and Europe are powered by TomTom’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) map. This figure has increased tenfold over the past three years. In comparison, industry volumes in these regions grew at half that rate over the same period.1.

TomTom has also made deals with many of the world’s top ten car manufacturers for its high definition (HD) card, including three of the top five.2. The TomTom HD Map has been selected by these major car manufacturers to support their most advanced AD technologies.

TomTom expects sales of ADAS Map to continue growing faster than the global market

“The fact that the world’s largest automotive groups are choosing TomTom’s ADAS and HD cards to support the safety, comfort and efficiency of their vehicles’ most advanced automated driving functions is proof of the quality and robustness of our automated driving product portfolio, ”said Antoine Saucier, Managing Director, TomTom Automotive. “Today, we equip more than five million automated vehicles on the road. This number has grown exponentially in recent years and will continue to grow faster than the global market over the next few years thanks to our latest offerings, consolidating TomTom’s leadership position in this market. “

Today, the TomTom ADAS Map supports more than a third of all AVs equipped with an ADAS map. The TomTom ADAS Map provides advanced driver assistance systems with high-quality traffic information around the world, including grade, lanes, curvature and speed limits, allowing vehicles to better anticipate the road to come, improving driving safety, comfort and eco-performance.

TomTom HD Map supports vehicles with partial automation up to full automation

The TomTom HD map is a very precise representation of the road, with a myriad of attributes, including lane models and lane geometry, to an accuracy of a few centimeters. TomTom’s HD map can be used to help an AV locate itself accurately on the road, to support sensors to understand the vehicle’s surroundings and to plan maneuvers. Due to these features, the TomTom HD Map can be used to activate and enhance various AD functions, such as autopilot and highway pilot, as well as full driving automation (SAE level five).
