EU Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc and 28 EU Transport Ministers gathered here, under the Dutch EU presidency, to work toward eliminating regulatory and technical barriers around autonomous driving. The vehicles were used in a demonstration during the event, driving the Ministers autonomously in real traffic conditions.
"TomTom is delighted that the Dutch presidency is taking the initiative to accelerate innovation and development around autonomous driving in the EU,” said Antoine Saucier, Managing Director for TomTom Automotive. “We are excited to work with PSA Group to support this event and to play a role in enabling the automotive industry to move closer to making autonomous driving a reality”.
TomTom HD Map and RoadDNA are two revolutionary, highly accurate digital map products helping automated vehicles precisely locate themselves on the road and plan manoeuvres, even when traveling at high speeds. Launched commercially in 2015, these new technologies are being rolled out in strategic geographies and are the subject of key partnerships with other automotive suppliers.
