Toyota, TomTom Team On Advanced Mapping For Automated Driving

Toyota, TomTom and Denso are working together to create a fast, high-definition map-building method for roads to facilitate autonomous driving.

Toyota Research Institute Advanced Development, Inc., TomTom and Denso executed a proof of concept demonstration of the system.

The companies used Toyota test vehicles equipped with Denso sensors, Toyota’s automated mapping platform and TomTom’s cloud-based transactional mapping platform.

The sensors are used to collect road observations, which are then converted and corrected by Toyota’s platform for input into TomTom’s mapping platform.

“We believe a multi-sourced HD map is essential to making safer autonomous driving possible,” stated Willem Strijbosch, head of autonomous driving at TomTom.
