TomTom is collaborating with Delphi Technologies on powertrains, with their powertrain control system using TomTom’s maps. Map data such as speed limits and road gradient combine to control a vehicle’s speed, reducing energy consumption and helping to improve safety, according to the companies.

Antoine Saucier, managing director, TomTom Automotive, commented: “Making every journey safe and comfortable is only one part of the puzzle – making them as efficient as possible is a huge challenge too.”
