Our very own, fully autonomous test vehicle officially hit the road!

Called Trillian (Get the reference? Hint: check the license plate numbers), we’re using the self-driving car to continually improve and perfect our TomTom HD Map technologies. Designed to test and improve our autonomous driving technologies including the industry-leading TomTom HD Map, TomTom Roadagrams, and map streaming service, TomTom AutoStream.

This is a sizable step as we continue engineering an autonomous future that helps reduce emissions and cut congestion.

    Hope to see this project live for general purpose usage & for commoners like me.

    Got it! But they made a big mistake...

    The test vehicle licence plate # (sequence1) 42 clearly doesn't neither match with my personal driver careers end car model dream "Smart for two" nor the 2nd # (sequence2) 42 for "for me!" ;)

    Yes, autonomous vehicle are need of the hour to bring down the road accident casualties. Good to see many companies are trying to come up with new innovations.

    Mmmmm.... While I admire the technology of these vehicles
    I would have thought that around the World these autonomous test vehicles are on the road only in the hundreds maybe thousands... Wait until there are Millions of them ???
