In the next few years, the global automobile industry would be transformed with the evolution of autonomous technology. Several automakers are already working on the self-driving technology and in near future, the production models of driverless vehicles will hit the roads.

By evaluating the potential of the autonomous technology, TomTom Automotive has been developing its innovative Tom Tom HD maps.

Several automotive giants participating in the 2017 Consumer Electronic Show are evaluating the possibility of using Tom Tom's technology in the self-driving cars.

Tom Tom's HD Maps is a highly accurate digital map based product that helps the self-driving vehicle to precisely locate themselves on the road and plan its movements even at high speeds.

The Tom Tom HD Maps works with the Tom Tom's Road DNA system, it scans the surroundings on the road using vehicles sensors to enable localisation for autonomous technology.

Managing Director, Tom Tom, Antoine Saucier said, "It was not even 18 months ago that we introduced our HD Map and RoadDNA to power the future of driving. Then, as now, we were saying that we were ready for the future - with products to accelerate the development of autonomous vehicles."

Head of Autonomous Driving, Tom Tom, Willem Strijbosch said, "It has been fantastic to work with global OEMs and Tier 1s, and gratifying to see that our innovative maps are already having such a pivotal role in the future of driving, today."
