TomTom has inked a technology collaboration with indoor positioning technology company sensewhere.

TomTom Indoor delivers customized indoor maps of public and private venues for site operators and partners. Sensewhere has developed a proprietary and patented positioning solution for mobile devices. The combination of TomTom’s maps – both indoor and traditional navigation maps – and sensewhere’s accurate indoor positioning is expected to enable a seamless navigation experience indoors and outdoors, say the companies.

“Access to indoor positioning technology, coupled with highly accurate indoor maps, means that guidance can be integrated into the day-to-day operations of a wide variety of venues, including enterprise facilities, shopping malls, airports, hospitals and more,” said PieterGillegot-Vergauwen, Vice President, Maps Product Management, TomTom.
