Tomtom and Mitsubishi Electric Collaborate to Advance Automated Driving

TomTom’s High Definition Map combined with Mitsubishi Electric’s High-Definition Locator provides automakers with a high-precision, integrated solution for next-generation vehicles.

TomTom (TOM2), the location technology specialist, and Mitsubishi Electric announced they are integrating technologies to develop new solutions and drive innovation in automated driving.

Through this collaboration, TomTom’s High Definition (HD) Map will power Mitsubishi Electric’s High-Definition Locator hardware, providing the highly accurate data required for automated driving. Mitsubishi Electric’s High-Definition Locator is a highly precise GPS-based vehicle positioning system that utilizes quasi-zenith satellites (QZSS) to provide unmatched accuracy at all times. Combined with the high-definition mapping that TomTom’s HD Map provides, the system generates accurate information on the vehicle’s position and road data critical for automated driving applications such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) applications.
