TomTom completes Western Europe high-definition road-map project

TomTom said it has finished expanding its High Definition (HD) Map covering all highways in Western Europe.

Earlier this year, TomTom finished its HD Map for the entire mainland U.S. interstate and highway network, TomTom said in a release.

The latest expansion, which covers more than 108,000 miles of highways across 19 European countries, brings TomTom's worldwide coverage to approximately 223,500 miles of roads. 

“It’s a significant milestone to have completed the full highway road network in Western Europe as well as in the United States," Willem Strijbosch, head of autonomous driving for TomTom, said in the release. "TomTom’s HD Map and RoadDNA will enable OEMs to roll-out ADAS (Advanced driver-assistance systems) and autonomous driving systems that work consistently across the road networks – essential for accelerating of the future of driving.” 

HD Map and TomTom's RoadDNA are digital map products to help automated vehicles locate themselves on the road and plan movement activity, the release said.
