TomTom, the geolocation technology specialist based in the Netherlands, joined the Mobility Club – Via ID’s acceleration platform for mobility players, created in 2018 – to collaborate with new and innovative partners.
TomTom: The global geolocation technology specialist
Founded in 1991 (under the name Palmtop Software), TomTom is the world’s leading independent geolocation technology specialist. They have been providing their customers with apps and sat navs with live traffic, fresh maps and more for years. More than 30 years of insights leading to the construction of maps, digital cockpit solutions, navigation software, routing and ETAs, APIs and traffic data for all.
Today, their ambition is to develop interoperable open map data worldwide. To do so, they’ve been focusing on collaborative innovation and working with partners like Microsoft, Stellantis, Uber, Volkswagen Group, Loop and Hyundai Motor Group. Indeed, they’ve been collecting resources all around the world to create the largest, richest geolocation database available.
In December 2022, TomTom even announced – along with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Meta, and Microsoft – the creation of the “Overture Maps Foundation” in order to develop interoperable open map data.
