Virtual Horizon

TomTom Virtual Horizon provides a highly accurate virtual picture of the road ahead. It seamlessly takes in map data from TomTom’s cloud to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) – optimizing speed adjustment and powertrain management to make driving safer, more comfortable and efficient.

TomTom Virtual Horizon extends driver and vehicle awareness beyond what onboard sensors can see, making it easier to anticipate and react to conditions on the road ahead.


Get ahead of the curve with the all-in-one solution

Our complete ADAS offering is compatible with all vehicle types – passenger cars, trucks and vans – with and without embedded navigation. It helps improve driver assistance and automated functions such as adaptive cruise control (ACC) and intelligent speed assistance (ISA) through detailed ADAS map content and flexible Virtual Horizon software.

One supplier for map data and software

We offer a complete ADAS technology stack. TomTom’s Virtual Horizon comes pre-integrated with our ADAS Map and AutoStream service – offering all you need to deploy automated driving and ISA functions quickly and efficiently.

ADAS technology stack

Proven to increase safety

TomTom ADAS Map contains leading speed limit info – among other content – and is proven to be ISA-compliant, based on official test drives. Our ADAS Map already powers millions of SAE L1-2 driver assistance functions today across multiple brands and regions.
