TomTom, Bosch Collaborate on Driver Assistance Systems

TomTom and Bosch are working on advanced driver assistance systems.

“Combining TomTom’s navigation technology and maps with Bosch’s proven advanced driving systems enables car manufacturers to create a competitive solution for drivers,” said TomTom automotive vice president Jan Maarten de Vries. “They benefit from having the most accurate information of what’s happening on the road ahead, building an overall safer driving experience.”

The two companies have announced a partnership to integrate TomTom’s navigation technology and maps into Bosch’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). By taking advantage of TomTom’s up-to-date maps and navigation data, Bosch will be able to develop more advanced applications including intelligent cruise control, upcoming curve alerts and jam tail warnings.

At a recent discussion on driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles, industry experts stressed the importance of live map data for vehicles to properly function with little driver input. Bosch is looking to leverage TomTom’s smart map making technology to create more accurate Advanced Driving Applications with near real-time information.

A demo of the system will be on display at the Paris Motor Show this week in the TomTom booth.
