BMW chooses Qualcomm technology for driver assistance systems

BMW is working to bring ever more sophisticated driver assistance systems to its cars. To achieve this goal, the German manufacturer must integrate increasingly complete and performing hardware platforms into its cars. Precisely for this reason, the automaker has decided to extend its collaboration agreement with Qualcomm .

According to reports, the American company will bring the latest advances in driver assistance technologies and products of its Snapdragon Ride platform, on the next generation of advanced driver assistance systems and on the automated driving platforms of the BMW Group.

The next generation automated driving stack will be based on the Snapdragon Ride vision system-on-chip (SoC), vision perception and ADAS central computing SoC controllers managed by the Qualcomm Car-2-Cloud service platform.

A BMW spokesperson said that Qualcomm’s new chips will be used on cars that will be born on the Neue Klasse platform . We therefore speak of the 2025. This means that the electric future of the German brand that will be based on the new platform will be able to count on particularly sophisticated driving assistance solutions. BMW will therefore leverage the technologies developed by Qualcomm to expand its ADAS solutions . In this regard, Nicolai Martin , SVP Driving Experience, of the BMW Group, commented:

BMW has chosen Qualcomm Technologies as our technology partner and system solutions provider based on the breadth and depth of the portfolio company, as well as proven experience in computing, connectivity, computer vision, advanced semiconductors and driver assistance technologies. We look forward to working directly with Qualcomm Technologies to build our next generation ADAS / AD platform, as well as continuing to deliver world-class driving experiences to our customers.
