Bosch and Tom Tom have entered a partnership to create maps for autonomous vehicles, TomTom has announced.

TomTom is designing the necessary maps, while Bosch, on the basis of its systems engineering work, is defining the specifications the maps must meet. Bosch is now testing the maps in automated vehicles on certain public roads in Germany and the U.S.

For Bosch and TomTom, this collaboration extends an existing partnership. For Bosch’s connected horizon, TomTom also provides dynamic map information via their real-time service backend without any localization layer. The connected horizon makes it possible to predict the route ahead and adapt driving strategy accordingly, according to the companies.
