Navigation technology provider TomTom has introduced TomTom RoadDNA, an exciting new product for vehicle localisation that will turn the idea of automated driving into reality. RoadDNA delivers highly accurate location information that can easily be integrated into the on-board system of a vehicle. The innovative new technology delivers a highly optimised lateral and longitudinal view of the roadway. RoadDNA data matched with vehicle sensor data in real-time, informs a vehicle about it’s location on the road, even while traveling at high speeds. By converting a 3D point cloud of road side patterns into a compressed, 2D view of the roadway, RoadDNA delivers a solution that needs little storage space and limits processing requirements, without losing detail.
