 TomTom HD Map

Navigation technology company, TomTom,  announced that it is completing the collection of data for its High Definition (HD) Map for Japan that will cover over 18,000 kilometres of freeways across the country.

With existing coverage in the US and Europe, the total coverage of  TomTom HD Maps globally is now almost 380,000km.

“The TomTom HD Map with RoadDNA is the globally unified HD Map service that OEMs and technology companies need for ADAS roll-out and autonomous driving systems,” said Willem Strijbosch, Head of Autonomous Driving at TomTom. “With the addition of the highways in Japan we’re building on our single global HD map – a map that works consistently across the road networks. 380,000km of roads for safe autonomous driving.”

The TomTom HD Map with RoadDNA is a revolutionary, highly accurate digital map product that helps autonomous vehicles precisely locate themselves on the road and plan manoeuvres, even when traveling at high speeds.

In July this year, TomTom announced a partnership with Baidu to collaborate on the creation of high definition maps for China.
