TomTom has announced that its real-time and historical Traffic data, Speed Profiles, and map elements will be integrated into rideOS’ innovative routing platform for self-driving vehicles to improve predictive analytics.

Through this agreement, rideOS’ services will also become compatible with TomTom’s High Definition maps, and the two companies will explore additional opportunities together. The traffic component of rideOS’ data platform is provided by TomTom through OpenLR, an open source project that provides royalty-free dynamic location referencing to enable reliable data exchange.

TomTom sources real-time traffic updates from 550 million data points around the world, through an anonymous and mutually beneficial process.
