NAVTEQ has collaborated with M/A-COM Technology Solutions (M/A-COM) to create a commercial map and positioning engine (MPE) module, which will provide vehicle control systems with predictive road awareness of 1km.

The solution will enhance active safety, energy-efficiency and driver information systems in vehicles independent of a navigation system.

The new module will offer predictive road attribute data to enhance Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

The M/A-COM tech MPE module integrates the NAVTEQ MPE map-compiled database to communicate electronic horizon messages to the vehicle control domain, which will make road-based predictive information available to vehicle subsystems.

The relevant map attributes include enhanced 2D geometry, curvature, absolute height, slope and speed limits.
