Partners Offer Innovative Geolocation-Based Tools And Services

STMicroelectronics and TomTom introduce a package of development tools in the STM32 Open Development Environment that connect directly to TomTom Maps APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) for location, tracking, and mapping data services. Deemed a first-of-its-kind-development package, it consists of an STM32 Discovery host board for 2G/3G cellular-to-cloud connectivity, a GNSS expansion board based on ST’s industry-proven Teseo satellite navigation technology, and a software Function Pack that connects your Internet-of-Things (IoT) node via a cellular network to a range of TomTom Maps APIs. With this hardware and software package and a TomTom developer account, developers can quickly add location-based services to their IoT and Smart City applications. Among these services are the translation of GPS coordinates into a street address inside a map (Reverse Geocoding), retrieval of nearby point of interests, and the production of accurate navigation directions.

 

In addition to the STM32 family of Arm Cortex-M core microcontrollers, the development tools leverage ST’s multi-constellation Teseo positioning-receiver technology to perform all positioning operations including tracking, acquisition, navigation, and data output.
