Designed to support superior vehicle connectivity.

Qualcomm Technologies automotive telematics solutions support rich, connected in-car experiences, while also connecting vehicles to one another, pedestrians, road infrastructure and the cloud. Our cost-competitive  solutions provide superior mobile communications technologies and application processing capabilities for telematics, navigation and entertainment systems to tens of millions of connected vehicles on the road today . This offers consumers efficient access to all their content, the cloud and the surrounding environment (V2X).

Support superior communication via the connected car.

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Automotive Solutions, our V2X solutions, are designed to connect vehicles to nearly everything—including to each other (V2V), to pedestrians (V2P), to roadway infrastructure (V2I), to the network (V2N) and more.

V2V communication

Provide vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication technologies such as Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) support safety systems with non-line-of-sight and latency-sensitive collision avoidance capabilities—benefitting drivers, passengers, bikers and others sharing the road.

V2I communication

Offer connected vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications for a variety of safety and interactivity applications, including DSRC, cellular for longer-range communication, signage for road-related information and traffic signal phase timing for emissions control and reduced congestion.

V2P communication

Help deter anticipated, projected collisions with vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) communication. Cars with V2P will see nearby people even when other drivers can’t, and send alerts to drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicyclists through smartphone applications or connected wearable devices like smart watches.

V2C communication

Designed to support cloud-based security, information, entertainment and connected car services with vehicle-to-cloud communication (V2C), which handles tasks such as firmware updates, security authentication, locating parking spots and even securing reservations—helping to make driving that much more efficient and enjoyable.

Explore our telematics technologies.

Our optimized, and architecturally streamlined and cost-optimized automotive industry platform includes integrated radios, dedicated processors and advanced location engines that are designed to support superior user experiences. A combination companion chip to the Qualcomm Snapdragon modem offers Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.1, and DSRC, which can  eliminate the need for separate V2X and Telematics TCU boxes in the car and enhance overall performance.

LTE Advanced

Support the most advanced telematics systems and connected infotainment features at varying speeds with integrated Qualcomm Snapdragon LTE modems—supporting ultimate performance for broad global deployment, while providing LTE is attainable across all automotive makes and models.

Dedicated processor

Offers both increased performance and potential BOM  cost savings for a variety of automotive applications with our dedicated integrated ARM Cortex A7 processor , including Wi-Fi hotspot and DSRC support when combined with the Qualcomm® VIVE™ connectivity solution.

Precision GNSS

Offer global position support for major constellations including GPS, Beidou, GLONASS and Galileo for enhanced automotive navigation, which also includes built-in software for global regulatory mandates like EU eCall and ERA GLONASS.


Connected vehicles equipped with in-car GNSS offer 2D and 3D navigation services for highly accurate positioning, even in urban canyon environments. Our Qualcomm Snapdragon and Qualcomm Atlas™ 7 processors, with support for GPS, GLONASS, BeiDou Navigation Satellite System (BDS) and Galileo, provide satellite-based, geo-location mapping information that is more robust than standard navigational systems . Our enhanced navigation feature set also includes support for dead reckoning, which provides location data by combining a previous location with the present fix to determine one’s position in challenging driving environments.

Dependable Wi-Fi performance

Supply concurrent support for in-car, multi-antenna Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart with our wireless chips, adapted for the automotive market. This networking strategy provides  multi-channel streaming experience, with low-latency content distribution and HD video streaming support for up to eight devices per vehicle. Our high-performance automotive Wi-Fi solutions can connect up to four mobile devices to stream multimedia content while simultaneously playing high-quality Bluetooth stereo audio.

Premium Bluetooth experience

Deliver high-quality Bluetooth services to the connected car with our automotive Bluetooth solutions, which include support for remote key access, individual seat memorization, user-specific volume preferences and voice-activated message delivery.

Bluetooth low energy

An always-on world stays connected with Bluetooth low energy (BLE) solutions. We have optimized the performance of our Bluetooth sensors to balance performance and battery life . BLE has a smaller antenna footprint than a traditional ultra-high frequency (UHF) system, making it ideal for automotive situations  such as tire pressure statistics, which measure tire pressure and securely alert the driver via smartphone or smartwatch when pressure is low. 

Power Line for electric vehicles

Design efficient electric vehicles (EV) with our wireless Power Line Communication (PLC) technology solutions. Based on the HomePlug Green PHY specification, our end-to-end solutions support development efforts for both EVs and charging stations for improved charging management and smart-grid integration.
