Connecting vehicles to everything.

Qualcomm Technologies remains strong in commitment to supporting safe, connected automotive transportation. We have been engaged with the Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) ecosystem for several years, initially with our IEEE 802.11p-based products, including QCA6584AU, and now with the Qualcomm® C-V2X 9150 chipset. C-V2X directly connect vehicles to everything—including to each other (V2V), to pedestrians (V2P), and to roadway infrastructure (V2I), and to the network (V2N).

An important enabler of our vision for the always-connected, more autonomous vehicle of the future.

C-V2X technology complements other vehicle sensor technologies, extending a vehicle's ability to “see” further down the road and providing a higher level of predictability for enhanced safety and autonomous driving.

Non-line of sight sensing

Provides 360º non-line-of-sight awareness, e.g. at blind intersections/on-ramps.

Conveying intent

Communicates intent and shares sensor data to provide higher level of predictability.

Enhanced situational awareness

Offers increased electronic horizon to enable soft safety alerts and reliable graduated warning.

Establishing the foundation with DSRC.

We have established the foundation for basic V2X safety services with Wi-Fi based Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC), completing large-scale field trials over the last decade with commercially available technology that is available today.

Accelerating C-V2X commercial readiness

To accelerate technology evolution and accommodate ever-expanding safety requirements and use cases, we introduced the world’s first Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) commercial solution based on 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 14 specifications, the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset. The 9150 C-V2X chipset will be featured as a part of the Qualcomm® C-V2X Reference Design, a complete C-V2X communications that leverages our unique capabilities in secure communications, precise positioning, and efficient processing.

Secure communications

Enables secure, low latency V2X communications for active safety and enhanced situational awareness.  

Precise positioning

Provides precise positioning and timing that are necessary for cars to communicate their accurate position, speed and heading. 

Efficient processing

Provides complete CV2X solution, including running the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) V2X stack and secure communications. 

Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset

The Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset empowers the industry, including  automakers and roadside infrastructure providers, with enhanced V2X capabilities for safety and autonomous driving. To meet automaker production demands for Road Safety using C-V2X solutions, the chipset will be available for commercial sampling in the second half of 2018. 

Qualcomm® C-V2X Reference Design

The Qualcomm® C-V2X Reference Design will include the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset with integrated GNSS capability for accurate positioning, an application processor running the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) V2X stack and a Hardware Security Module (HSM), designed to provide secure V2X communications.
