Telematics

We have optimized our cellular solutions for the automotive ecosystem, providing our customers with support for integrated radios, dedicated processors and advanced location engines.

Drive data platform

Our drive data platform uses cutting-edge smart technologies to intelligently collect and analyze data from different vehicle  sensors, so smarter vehicles  can determine their location, monitor and learn driving patterns, perceive their surroundings and share this perception with rest of the world reliably and accurately. 

Infotainment

Smart cars manufactured with our integrated Snapdragon automotive  processors offer an immersive infotainment experience. With support for 3D navigation, media streaming and parking assistance, as well as voice, facial and device recognition, our customers are redefining the connected smart auto landscape.

Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging (WEVC)

Qualcomm Halo™ WEVC is a highly efficient energy charging solution that doesn’t require wires or cables. Smart technologies are  designed to allow electric vehicles to simply park over a designated ground-based charging pad, and power is sent to the EV—automatically and without wires.

Audi’s legacy of innovation continues with the connected car.

Audi has long been an innovator in the connected car space. Now Audi is accelerating their innovative spirit by integrating the Qualcomm Snapdragon 602A processor into their 2017 portfolio of connected smart cars. The Snapdragon 602A processor is Qualcomm Technologies’ first automotive-grade infotainment chipset, designed to deliver advanced smartphone-quality connectivity, infotainment, navigation and voice features to the car’s on-board control system.

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.
