Delphi Technologies has announced its collaboration with TomTom, navigation, traffic and map products supplier, for intelligent driving solutions. The two companies will collaborate on electronic and software applications designed to further optimise vehicle fuel efficiency and emissions through the use of real-time mapping data.
The intelligent driving controls of Delphi will use real-time mapping data to predict changing driving conditions, such as route infrastructure and topography, traffic congestion and weather. This information will then be used to help improve fuel efficiency, reduce emissions, and shorten commute times.
Mary Gustanski, CTO, Delphi Technologies, said smart propulsion solutions are the next logical step in transportation. Delphi’s collaboration with TomTom will help it find new opportunities to integrate more information about a driver’s route, in order to enhance its proprietary Intelligent Driving controls, she added. Gustanski noted that this solution will also allow vehicles to drive better, cleaner and further.
Delphi Technologies’ portfolio of new intelligent connected solutions are claimed to bring vehicles to life. Data enabled by automated and connected technologies improves propulsion efficiency, safety and range of all vehicles to create a future of smarter vehicles.
