You will be shocked by the very fact that TomTom Maps database is updating 570 changes every single second.
In a month, 1.5 billion map changes
49.3 million changes in a day
2.1 million changes in every hour
570 changes per second
Absolutely right! On average, These changes include everything from road features geometry and to new points of interest, or altered road junctions. And here is the best part, every change will carry TomTom’s stamp of quality guarantee.
First of all, in this blog post, maps describe how using a combination of machine learning, automation, and artificial intelligence has brought the company close to this achievement.
It will help us to know its vision of producing real-time maps.
Therefore, with the above feature, now it is possible in 2.5 times less cost than before.
“You must we wondering how it could be that specific how we provide these services, we use professional mapmaking techniques with the use of community input from hundreds of millions of users. These use map worldwide and of GPS probe data from hundreds of millions of connected devices.
TOMTOM uses all of this intelligence to efficiently tap into local teams of map technicians and mobile mapping vans,
Andy says.“Via TomTom’s state-of-the-art transactional map production platform, with continuous integration,
we can achieve short cycle times between detecting changes in the real world and updating the map with guaranteed quality levels.”
TomTom means it would soon be able to achieve any level of detail with this level of scalability in both its navigation map and high-definition maps for autonomous vehicles.
Exciting times ahead, for sure!
This level of scalability allows TomTom to deal with any level of detail in both its navigation map and high definition (HD) map for autonomous vehicles.
De Taeye continues: “To shape the future of mobility, 1.5 billion changes to our maps in a single month prove the scalability of our unique production platform, and brings us a step closer to real-time maps. We’re excited to be driving this future.”
