The EUTA welcomes new member TomTom

Our second new member to join us this year is TomTom, a location technology specialist, shaping mobility with highly accurate maps, navigation software, real-time traffic information and services.

TomTom was founded in 1991, and by 2004 they had revolutionised the world of driving with the world’s first all-in-one satnav. Fast forward to 2019 and TomTom had launched their first autonomous vehicle with the aim of testing and improving automated driving technologies. TomTom aims to achieve a safer, cleaner world, free of congestion and GHG emissions.

By combining their extensive experience with leading business and technology partners, they are at the forefront of the effort to keep the world’s traffic moving, through powering connecting vehicles, smart mobility and autonomous driving.

Now a leading location technology specialist, we are pleased to welcome TomTom to the beginning of their EUTA journey.
