With the TomTom ADAS Map, the Delphi Technologies Intelligent Driving system can “see” the road ahead, enabling the vehicle to anticipate upcoming curves, hills and speed limits to slow down or accelerate for smoother and more efficient driving.
TomTom delivered both hardware and software components to Delphi, including Intel NUC, a positioning device and the latest releases of applicable software – including the TomTom Virtual Horizon, compliant to ADASIS v2.0.4 protocol, which exposes map attributes such as form of way (e.g. single or multiple carriageway, slip road, roundabout, etc.), speed limits, number of lanes, curvature, slope and more.
For example, if there is an upcoming descent in the road or speed limit change, feeding TomTom ADAS Map data into Delphi Technologies Intelligent Driving system’s automotive powertrain software, the vehicle will anticipate the change and adjust the vehicle’s speed accordingly. Sharp braking and acceleration therefore become reduced for greater comfort and safety, while achieving enhanced eco-performance through ‘intelligent’ speed control.
