TomTom (TOM2), the location technology specialist, announces that its maps for automated driving are powering over half a million Level 1 and Level 2-enabled automated vehicles on the road. The half million vehicles are across multiple manufacturers.
As defined by the Society of Automotive Engineers, Level 1 encompasses automation of either lateral or longitudinal vehicle motion control, while Level 2 encompasses automation of lateral and longitudinal vehicle motion control. Commercial vehicles drive more efficiently, saving fuel and reducing emissions; and passenger cars will more safely pilot their passengers on the road.
Willem Strijbosch, TomTom’s Head of Autonomous Driving, comments: “The road towards a fully autonomous future is exciting – and we’re already powering automated driving on the roads right now. TomTom’s vision is an autonomous future with safer roads, free of congestion and emissions – today’s milestone is a key step towards this.”
