GERMANY: Bosch and TomTom dual for self-drive mapping

Bosch and TomTom say they will collaborate in the area of maps for automated driving.

Bosch and TomTom say they will collaborate in the area of maps for automated driving.

TomTom will design the maps, while Bosch, on the basis of its systems engineering work, is defining the specifications the maps have to meet.

The maps are being used in the automated vehicles Bosch is testing on certain public roads in Germany (A81) and in the US (I280).

“Only with precision maps will automated driving on freeways be possible from 2020,” said Bosch board member, Dirk Hoheisel.

Road coverage will subsequently be extended to the rest of Europe and North America.
