Autonomous Driving

Scalable, high performance at low power.

Paving the way for autonomous driving.

The Qualcomm® Snapdragon Ride™ Platform is one of the automotive industry’s most advanced, scalable and fully customizable automated driving platforms. It will facilitate automotive suppliers and automakers flexibility to deploy the safety, convenience and autonomous driving features in demand today--with the ability to scale in the future.


Reliable, extreme, auto-ready performance at low power with more simplicity and higher automotive safety. And unlike other autonomous driving solutions that require liquid cooling, the Snapdragon Ride Platform is passive or air-cooled.


Our comprehensive customizable platform features multi-ECU aggregation, allowing it to easily scale from Active safety to Convenience to full Self-Driving across a wider range of vehicles.

Revolutionary software stack

In addition to our high-performance, energy-efficient hardware, the new Snapdragon Ride Autonomous Stack combines with the hardware to provide one of the most robust vehicle perception and driving brains available.

Collaboration for next generation ADAS and autonomous driving systems.
