Driving can be stressful for a number of reasons. Poor weather conditions, “range anxiety” and searching for a parking spot can make for an unpleasant experience.
Keeping Drivers Safe in Adverse Weather Conditions
Adverse weather conditions can cause a range of issues to drivers, such as delays, traffic jams and even accidents. A way to mitigate these issues is to keep drivers informed of the atmospheric conditions, enabling them to make better decisions. TomTom Weather helps drivers make informed decisions along their journey by providing accurate, reliable and relevant information on weather conditions. TomTom Weather is available in two complementary options:
Informs drivers of weather conditions at destination and at specific locations. This information can be displayed in a table and/or map format, to help drivers plan their journey more effectively.
Uses detailed weather information to visualize weather conditions on the map, provide hyper-local weather warnings to drivers, improve ETA accuracy, and allow drivers to choose routes less affected by adverse weather conditions.
Enabling Smarter Fueling Decisions
Fuel represents one of the highest expenses linked to vehicle ownership, accounting for an average of $1,681 per car per year*. TomTom Fuel enables drivers to search, compare and evaluate different re-fueling options, allowing them to save time and save on fuel costs. TomTom aggregates and processes static and dynamic data from various industry-leading suppliers and operators to provide drivers relevant fuel station information. This includes real-time prices, payment methods, fuel types, fuel station name and brand, operating hours, contact information and additional services such as shops, car wash and service. TomTom Fuel helps drivers plan their journey to include the most convenient and/or preferred fueling stops.
Making Range Anxiety a Thing of the Past
Although electric vehicles (EVs) are experiencing signs of sustained growth, there is still a significant barrier to more widespread adoption: range anxiety. This issue can be addressed in a number of ways: improving electric batteries to allow for extended range, expanding the EV charging network and improving the performance of EV chargers. Another approach is to optimize the usage of existing resources by leveraging relevant data. TomTom EV aims to make range anxiety a thing of the past, by providing EV drivers relevant information allowing them to plan their journey in the most convenient way. This includes real-time EV charging station availability, station brand, operator name, connector type, operating hours, payment methods and accessibility (private/public).
