TomTom AutoStream is an innovative ‘Cloud to Car’ map delivery system which streams the latest map data from the TomTom Cloud to the vehicle. EB robinos Predictor is an in-vehicle Electronic Horizon solution that uses this map data to provide highly accurate and up-to-date information about the road ahead for predictive driver assistance functions. This allows car makers to improve safety and comfort in automated driving.
