The automotive industry is going through an unprecedented transformation. Shared mobility services are changing the definition of car-ownership, cars are becoming carbon-emissions free with EV vehicles, and the race towards automated driving is heating up across the industry. At the same time, the car itself is becoming a sensor hub, generating tons of data (e.g. connected car is expected to generate 1.1PB of data per day by 2020).
To help the automotive industry in an innovative, and cost-effective, manner, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has created the Qualcomm® drive data platform, which uses cutting-edge technology to intelligently collect and analyze data from different vehicle’s sensors to facilitate smarter vehicles that can determine their location, monitor and learn driving patterns, perceive their surroundings and share this perception with rest of the world reliably and accurately. These capabilities will be key for many connected car applications, from shared mobility and fleet management to 3D High definition mapping and future automated driving.
