TomTom RoadCheck is a tool for automakers to determine when, where and under what conditions their vehicles can safely activate automated driving functions. It is an industry first, using highly detailed TomTom HD Map data to help define the operational design domain of an automated vehicle.
Increasing vehicle safety through HD map data
To make automated driving (AD) safer and more widespread, automakers need to overcome several key challenges. One of the biggest challenges is defining the exhaustive list of conditions under which their automated vehicle can safely operate. This is referred to as the operational design domain (ODD). TomTom RoadCheck is designed to overcome the challenge of managing the ODD, ultimately making roads safer for all drivers.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Enable the next generation of automated driving
RoadCheck is a powerful, yet easy-to-use tool. Engineers can enter AD rules and restrictions into the intuitive online editor. The cloud-based RoadCheck service delivers the data directly to the vehicle, for example, through our pre-integrated AutoStream service. Such speed and flexibility open the road to a new age of AD.
Unique map insights, safer vehicles
RoadCheck allows automakers to combine TomTom’s advanced map data with data coming from test drives and vehicles on the road. This gives AD engineers unique map insights for the ODD, unlocking new possibilities to make their vehicles safer.
One solution fits all
Automakers can achieve great economies of scale by using the same cloud-based infrastructure to differentiate the ODD across vehicle models and brands with varied AD systems.
Tailor to any vehicle
To account for unique vehicle hardware and driver preferences per model, automakers can use RoadCheck to build specific AD functions tailored to any vehicle. Automakers have full control and flexibility.
RoadCheck is pre-integrated with the TomTom HD Map and our over-the-air map delivery system, TomTom AutoStream, accelerating time to market.
