Qualcomm Technologies has announced a collaboration to bring the latest advancements in driver assistance technologies, and products of its Snapdragon Ride Platform, to BMW Group’s next generation ADAS and automated driving (AD) platforms. This will enable the delivery of safer, more connected, driving experiences to vehicles in the BMW Group.

BMW’s next generation Automated Driving stack will be based on the Snapdragon Ride vision system-on-chip (SoC), vision perception and ADAS central compute SoC controllers managed by Qualcomm’s Car-2-Cloud services platform.

The BMW Group has said the partnership will bring a range of ADAS/AD functions, including front, rear, and surround view camera computer vision in a dedicated computer vision SoC, as well as a high-performance ADAS central compute controller, to host its drive policy and other planning and driving functions.
