3D Connected Navigation
Qualcomm® Adreno™ GPU provides accelerated rendering and excellent responsiveness in 2D and 3D map navigation and lane detection assistance.
Media Streaming Services
With 4G LTE, LTE Advanced and LTE Broadcast built in, Snapdragon processors deliver faster data and quicker network response times, enabling rich video streaming and music services like Pandora and iHeart Radio.
Drivers can use voice commands to perform common infotainment tasks with the Hexagon DSP in the Snapdragon processor that supports an always-on, low power listening feature that “wakes up” only when specific words are spoken.
Facial or Device Recognition
The AllJoyn® open source SDK (managed by the AllSeen Alliance) can personalize seat, window, mirror, and comfort settings by facial detection or a smart phone app over Wi-Fi.
Wireless Device Charging
Qualcomm® WiPower™ wireless charging technology can charge multiple devices simultaneously and easily, without careful alignment on the charging surface.
Parking Assistance with Surround View
Images from four exterior cameras are stitched to provide an undistorted and unwrapped live feed 360-degree view of the car with the OpenGL on the GPU.
Snapdragon 602A Processor
The Snapdragon 602A Automotive-Grade processor fuels cutting-edge automotive solutions with wireless communications, location, voice and multimedia processing to bring the experiences found in your favorite mobile devices to your car or truck. Our unprecedented integration of features like quad-core CPUs, HD video, security, and multi-constellation GNSS, allow us to offer optimal system cost and performance for superior user experiences and future-proofed systems.
Snapdragon modems seamlessly connect your car’s diagnostics, navigation, and emergency services, like OnStar, to reliable, ultra fast 3G and 4G LTE Advanced wireless networks so that you can get going, fast.
With more people piling into the car, sometimes with multiple devices in hand, your in-car Wi-Fi is in high demand. To ensure fast connections, Qualcomm® VIVE™ 802.11ac technology with MU-MIMO supports more powerful Wi-Fi to improve your connected in-car experience and more fully leverage 4G LTE Advanced.
While most in-car location systems show where you are, Qualcomm® IZat™ location services show who and what are around you. Now being integrated into car infotainment and telematics systems, Qualcomm IZat helps you see more of what’s on the road ahead by simultaneously leveraging multiple satellite constellations.
Snapdragon Automotive Development Platform
The Snapdragon™ Automotive Development Platform (ADP) is designed to provide a full-featured application development environment for rapid development of high performance and power efficient connected infotainment offerings.
The integrated system approach includes the Snapdragon 602A processor and related chipset elements, including an MDM9x15 based multimode 3G/4G LTE modem, and VIVE 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth based modules. This creates a powerful development platform, which, combined with a comprehensive software solution that supports Android and QNX OS, can help lower development cost, reduce risk, and speed time to development.
