Qualcomm Technologies and BMW are to extend their collaboration, with the former providing its Snapdragon Ride Platform for BMW’s next generation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD) platforms.
The next generation BMW Automated Driving stack will be based on the Snapdragon Ride vision system-on-chip (SoC), vision perception and ADAS central compute SoC controllers managed by Qualcomm Car-2-Cloud services platform.
This will allow BMW use of a full spectrum of ADAS/AD functions, including front, rear and surround view camera computer vision in a dedicated computer vision SoC, as well as a high-performance ADAS central compute controller, to host BMW’s drive policy and other planning and driving functions.
“BMW has chosen Qualcomm Technologies as our technology partner and systems solutions provider based on the company’s breadth and depth of portfolio, as well as proven expertise in compute, connectivity, computer vision, advanced semiconductors and driver assistance technologies,” said Nicolai Martin, SVP Driving Experience, BMW Group.
“We look forward to working in direct relationship with Qualcomm Technologies to build our next-generation ADAS/AD platform, as well as to continue delivering world-class driving experiences to our customers.”
“Our goal has always been to offer auto makers an open, comprehensive and transformative platform that encompasses semiconductor, software, stack, systems and services,” added Nakul Duggal, senior vice president and general manager, automotive, Qualcomm Technologies. “We are honored to be selected by the BMW Group to be its ADAS technology partner for computer vision stack, vision SoC and ADAS central compute controllers, and we look forward to joint development and deployment of these products.”
