Navigation integrated into connected vehicle platform

November 7th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

TomTom’s navigation has been integrated with the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform. Navigation usage and diagnostics data can be sent from vehicles to Microsoft Azure where the data can be used by automakers to generate data-driven insights to deliver tailored services and to make better informed design and engineering decisions. The location intelligence – which also includes traffic information and HD map services – can also be used in vehicles for navigation apps, as well as context while driving autonomously. This data could, for instance, be used to predict the range of an electric vehicle based on driving behaviour and planned route more accurately; or to work out, based on navigation behaviour, what connectivity package for online navigation would be best suited for a driver. In December 2016, the company made its location-based services available on Azure, and in February 2019 TomTom had been chosen as the location data provider for mapping services across Microsoft solutions, including Azure Maps, Bing, Cortana, Windows and future offerings.
