    TomTom Introduces Next Generation Real-Time Maps on TomTom BRIDGE

    First TomTom device to utilise NDS –the Navigation Data Standard for maps



    download.cfm?companyid=TOMTOM&fileid=909714&filekey=C546712E F79B 4D4F 98CC 8617AA449172&filename=BRIDGE%2DDriving%2DKM%2Ejpg

    Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 28 September 2016 TomTom today announced that the TomTom BRIDGE will be delivered with next-generation maps – the first TomTom device to benefit from the Navigation Data Standard (NDS) map format. In addition to new maps, the entire navigation experience will improve due to new features made available on the navigation software.
    The map format, combined with improved visualisation, will allow businesses to get access to the freshest maps available. After real time traffic, TomTom is now bringing near to real time maps. Businesses will be able to configure, update and maintain their systems better, reducing downtimes whist increasing reliability – ultimately helping companies to save time and money.
    The TomTom BRIDGE is a driver terminal that seamlessly connects business applications with TomTom’s core navigation technology. The new map format puts integrators fully in control of which map regions they want to install on the device, providing more control on the size of the updates.
    They will also have access to more features such as being able to choose between 2D and 3D maps, which lets the user free-up space on the device; activate incremental map updates to provide changes in speed limits, direction of traffic flow, and one-way streets; and to ensure users always drive with the latest and freshest maps. More features will be provided regularly on TomTom’s BRIDGE developer portal* over the course of 2017.
    Sebastien Ruffino, VP B2B Sales, TomTom, commented: “When we introduced TomTom BRIDGE at the end of 2014, we were the first to bring an open navigation hardware platform to stimulate innovation. Today we are bringing the future of navigation into the hands of companies and integrators to help businesses gain efficiencies, and bring faster innovation to market. End users will also benefit from the state-of-the-art of navigation technology, ensuring that professional drivers will have safer, better and, ultimately, more enjoyable journeys.”

    Paris Motor Show, 29 September 2016 – TomTom today announced the introduction of an On-Street Parking service, a game-changer for drivers on the hunt for that hard to find parking spot. The service will be initially available as a data feed[1] for 25 cities[2] in Europe, with additional geo-expansion to follow. The TomTom On-Street Parking will complement the existing Off-Street Parking (parking garage) information service already available to TomTom customers and licensing customers.
    TomTom uses its vast supply of GPS data to determine where drivers are looking for parking places and at what times of the day. With this information, the TomTom On-Street Parking service provides drivers with the probability of finding a parking spot on a street level, as well as the average search-time for a spot. To further enhance the parking experience, TomTom will also publish pricing and restriction information where available.
    The new On-Street Parking service represents another step for TomTom towards the future of driving, where the service could be used by autonomous vehicles to seamlessly find a parking spot and park themselves.
    “TomTom On-Street Parking offers drivers peace of mind and a less stressful parking experience, in addition to helping them save time and money,” says Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Head of Traffic and Travel Information at TomTom. “The service also helps reduce congestion in cities and thus lower CO2 emissions, and enables cities to better understand and manage street parking inventory to improve urban mobility”.
    TomTom On-Street Parking will be showcased along with TomTom’s complete automotive product offering at the Paris Motor Show in the TomTom booth - Hall 3, Booth 104.

    Better real-time traffic information in UK

    TomTom and Elgin partner to deliver unprecedented insights into the impact of roadworks in the UK




    Birmingham, November 15 2016 – TomTom (TOM2) and Elgin are proud to announce their collaboration which aims to deliver more accurate and validated real-time traffic information to drivers, fleet managers and traffic management professionals. TomTom Traffic in the United Kingdom now includes relevant roadworks and traffic management information from Elgin. This collaboration ultimately enables drivers to reach their destinations more quickly and Highway Authorities and utility companies to monitor and respond to the impact of roadworks on road users in real-time.
    Elgin, creators of roadworks.org, provides a comprehensive roadworks and traffic management communications hub, which also serves as the national roadworks database for England & Wales. The roadworks.org map is embedded within hundreds of local and national Authorities and the underlying data is widely disseminated through a variety of services.
    “TomTom receives a detailed picture of current vehicle speeds and locations, reported by TomTom navigation systems and mobile applications, and this data is anonymized and fused with roadworks data from Elgin,” explains Anders Truelsen, Managing Director of TomTom’s Licensing Business Unit.
    “By harnessing machine learning to improve the data’s quality, TomTom’s Traffic Fusion Engine creates a positive feedback loop and can discern whether, for example, scheduled roadworks reported to Elgin are causing traffic disruptions and whether these are occurring where they were planned to.”
    This has the potential to revolutionise traffic management in the UK by enabling Traffic Managers and Works Promoters to truly assess the real-time impacts of their current works and to plan both roadworks and traffic management interventions more effectively.
    “We’re extremely enthusiastic about the ways that TomTom and Elgin’s combined real-time data feeds can be harnessed by transport authorities and contractors alike to proactively monitor and minimise traffic disruptions resulting from planned roadworks,” adds James Harris, Elgin’s Managing Director. “We have worked closely with TomTom to ensure that this valuable data is made accessible through our respective data services.”
    The combined TomTom/Elgin data, including the real-time impact of roadworks and traffic management measures, can be accessed by permissioned users within Elgin’s roadworks.org Pro operational environment, or licensed as a raw data feed through TomTom or Elgin for integration within Traffic Control Centres, Urban Traffic Management and Control (UTMC) systems and Intelligent Transport Systems.
    Private road users utilising TomTom’s live traffic information in the UK – e.g. through a connected navigation system or mobile application – also benefit directly from this new collaboration. TomTom Traffic helps drivers plan the best route and reach their destinations quicker thanks to the integration of UK roadworks data from Elgin.
    TomTom and Elgin will be exhibiting at the Highways UK Conference and Exhibition at the NEC Birmingham, UK on November 16th and 17th 2016. For more information, please visit them at stand B06.
