TomTom introduces product for safer autonomous driving

By | September 4, 2020

TomTom launched TomTom RoadCheck, a pioneering product for automated vehicles that allows carmakers to decide where it is safe for drivers to activate their vehicles’ automated driving functions.

RoadCheck will permit carmakers to utilize TomTom’s high definition (HD) map data to the fullest potential. It will help them define the operational design domain (ODD) of their vehicles’ automated driving functions. This will allow carmakers to manage where these functions can be used safely.

Automotive World quoted Head of Autonomous Driving at TomTom, Willem Strijbosch, as saying that by enabling carmakers to control where automated driving functions can be activated, TomTom is addressing a critical industry challenge that has been highlighted by their partners and customers. TomTom RoadCheck – an industry first technology – will make safe autonomous driving a reality earlier than expected. He added that with the addition of TomTom RoadCheck, they have become the first to offer carmakers a complete mapping service for safe automated driving.

TomTom RoadCheck will be deployed in a production model by a leading global carmaker in 2021 and will initially start in the United States.
