TomTom and Elektrobit (EB) will collaborate to demonstrate an “electronic horizon” system for driver-assistance functions and autonomous vehicles, combining TomTom AutoStream and Elektrobit’s EB robinos Predictor, the companies said.
TomTom AutoStream is a cloud-to-car map delivery system that 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 accurate and up-to-date information about the road ahead for predictive driver-assistance functions, according to the companies.
“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,” said Willem Strijbosch, TomTom’s head of autonomous driving.
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, the companies said.
“When it comes to automated driving, reliability is paramount,” said Martin Schleicher, executive vice president, head of business management, Elektrobit. “We are delighted to work alongside our long-time partner, TomTom, in delivering a state-of-the-art solution that will enable carmakers to equip their vehicles with more precise automated driving systems by leveraging highly precise maps.”
