HiPhi X with 5G and C-V2X technology.

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. announced today the company is working with Human Horizons (Jiangsu) Technology Co., Ltd., Ningbo JOYNEXT Technology Corporation and Quectel Wireless Solutions Co., Ltd. to support advanced vehicle connectivity innovations in 5G and cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) on HiPhi X — Human Horizons’ first super sports utility vehicle (SUV) in mass production, which is scheduled to be delivered in May. This is the achievement of the in-depth working relationship between Qualcomm Technologies, Human Horizons, JOYNEXT and Quectel, who are working together to feature advanced technologies in telematics and C-V2X communication. Utilizing the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Automotive 5G Platform with integrated C-V2X direct communications, high-precision multi-frequency global navigation satellite system (HP-GNSS) and RF Front-End (RFFE) functionalities to support major operators across key spectrum bands globally, the HiPhi X will be equipped to feature 5G-enabled in-vehicle experiences and be a part of a new era of future-oriented intelligent connected vehicles. 

The HiPhi X is Human Horizon’s first premier-tier super SUV within the automaker’s premium electric brand in mass production. JOYNEXT's 5G-V2X OBU (On-board Unit) and Quectel’s automotive 5G module, which features the Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platform, is a combination of advanced functions and features. As an industry leading automotive-grade 5G wireless solution, the Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platform is designed to provide strong performance and support for automotive telematics devices in functionality and service. Its integrated C-V2X technology is designed to support HiPhi X’s ability to deliver 5G and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2X) services for various scenarios, including V2V and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication standards. With the Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platform’s support for concurrent multi-frequency, multi-constellation GNSS and Qualcomm® Dead Reckoning 3 technology, and RTK data offered by China’s leading service providers, HiPhi X vehicles are optimized to provide highly accurate location positioning with a comprehensive 3D navigation solution and can assist the vehicle with Level 3 autonomous driving functionality. 

The automated roll off hypervelocity projectile (HVP) system for HiPhi X is based on Human Horizons’ well-established expertise in cooperative vehicle-infrastructure system (CVIS) and autonomous driving technology. It follows the concept of road-side sensing, cloud scheduling and vehicle-side control. By leveraging road-side sensing systems, the HVP offers vehicles with sensing information and cloud scheduling through the 5G-V2X, a high-reliability, low-latency data transmission channel, thus achieving higher level of autonomous driving capability. Additionally, utilizing the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 Automotive Platform, the HiPhi X supports a rich set of features—including immersive graphics, multimedia, computer vision—and brings more connected, immersive and intelligent in-vehicle experiences to drivers and passengers.

“HiPhi is a new, innovative and disruptive brand created by Human Horizons. We are pleased to work with leading technology and automotive companies like JOYNEXT, Quectel and Qualcomm Technologies that have the innovative spirit and deep technology heritage to achieve this milestone and open up a new era of automotive evolution,” said Jun Chen, senior vice president of engineering and vehicle development, Human Horizons.

“Quectel and Qualcomm Technologies have been maintaining close cooperative relationships on innovation, mutual trust and win-win development in many fields, including V2X,” said Min Wang, automotive product line general manager, Quectel. “We are excited to work with Qualcomm Technologies and JOYNEXT to support Human Horizon’s HiPhi brand and to build its production vehicle with the Snapdragon Automotive 5G Platform and automotive 5G module, to help transform the automotive industry with the rapid expansion of 5G.”

“With the strong influence of digitalization, the concept of Intelligent Connectivity brings marvelous chances for the automotive industry. We are very proud that JOYNEXT’s 5G-V2X technology can cooperate with Qualcomm Technologies and Quectel, to support Human Horizons in HiPhi X that becomes a global pioneer,” said Ke Tu, JOYNEXT China President. “With the ability to serve both international and local needs, JOYNEXT has been focusing on technologies in Connected Infotainment, Smart Connectivity Gateway, Cloud Services, ADAS and Navigation, and SaaS/SaaP for many years, and is one of few infotainment suppliers being able to serve global top automakers in China. We’re looking forward to deeply cooperating with industrial partners and aiming to shape mobility for generations by our next technologies.”

“With nearly twenty years of investment in the automotive industry, Qualcomm Technologies is committed to redefining and empowering the next generation of driving experiences through key technological innovations,” said Gang Sun, vice president of product marketing, Qualcomm International (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. “We are thrilled to work with leading companies in China’s automotive industrial chain to lead 5G-V2X development and commercialization worldwide, help take a solid step forward for the intelligently connected vehicles in the 5G era and share the new round of innovation opportunities arising from 5G transformation to the global automotive ecosystem.”
