TomTom to Offer Faster Updates of Map Database

Thursday, July 24th 2014
By Joe Francica

TomTom's Multinet-R platform promises to deliver faster updates to clients using a more narrowly constrained quality assurace process. The QA process will utilize faster validation leveraging crowd-sourced data. The objective is to get new data into the hands of clients with updates narrowed from quarterly to monthly and even daily. According to TomTom's second quarter report released today:

The development of our new real-time map-making platform will result in better maps at lower cost. The platform is scheduled to roll out from late this year onwards. Our new map is continuously releasable and processes sensor and crowd-sourced data from our own and customer applications in near real-time. Customers will experience all the advantages of a locally stored map, while receiving incremental updates. This puts TomTom in a leading position to master future map use requirements for Highly Automated Driving and pilots are in progress with our customers.

The data will be delivered in TomTom's proprietary format but will load easily to other relational databases.
