Watch the complete talk
For over a decade TomTom has been creating consumer devices for navigation routing people from A to B as fast as possible. One of the key components in routing is the availability of a high-quality map. While initially maps were being produced in a very laborious way involving a significant amount of manual work, map productization is nowadays becoming more and more automatized.
This talk shows the advantage of using AI to automate the map-making process. Another key ingredient to providing a great routing experience are connected services. TomTom devices were one of the first to be “connected” and were able to inform drivers about the traffic ahead to even avoid congestions. This talk illustrates how AI is used to infer traffic incidents based on GPS data. It concludes with a few more involved examples underlining TomTom’s transition from a consumer device company, to an AI company with automated map creation and autonomous driving in prime focus.
