Delphi Technologies, which has its North American headquarters in Troy, Friday announced a collaboration with TomTom, an Amsterdam-based navigation, traffic, and map products company. TomTom has a Farmington Hills location.

The companies will work on electronic and software applications designed to further vehicle fuel efficiency and reduce emissions through the use of real-time mapping data.

Delphi’s Intelligent Driving controls will use mapping data to predict changing driving conditions, including route infrastructure, topography, traffic congestion, and weather. This is expected to improve fuel efficiency, reduce emissions, and shorten commute times.

“Smart propulsion solutions are the next logical step in transportation,” says Mary Gustanski, chief technology officer of Delphi. “Our collaboration with TomTom will help us to find new opportunities to integrate more information about a driver’s route, in order to enhance our proprietary Intelligent Driving controls and allow vehicles to drive better, cleaner, and further.”

Delphi works to provide electric vehicle and internal combustion engine propulsion solutions, as well as solve emissions and fuel economy challenges for OEMs. Its global headquarters are in London.

In related news, Delphi Technologies today announced it has appointed Richard F. (Rick) Dauch, 57, as the company’s new CEO. Dauch will also join the company’s board of directors. He succeeds Hari N. Nair who has been serving as interim CEO since Oct. 5, 2018.
