Veoneer and Qualcomm have signed an agreement under which the companies will collaborate on the delivery of scalable ADAS Collaborative and Autonomous Driving (AD) solutions. 

The platform will address the growing needs of the automotive ecosystem for scalable and upgradable solutions, which requires highly advanced and power-efficient compute, connectivity and cloud service capabilities across all vehicle tiers. 

The system integrates Veoneer’s next-generation perception and driving policy software stack and Qualcomm Snapdragon Ride™ ADAS/AD scalable portfolio of System on a Chip (SoC) and Accelerators. Veoneer and Qualcomm Technologies have worked together for several months to create a world leading roadmap of a scalable, open ADAS and autonomous driving system that will be able to address the entire automotive OEM market with an integrated software and SoC platform.

Arriver is Veoneer’s dedicated software unit for the development of the complete perception and drive policy software stack. It is 100% owned by Veoneer but will operate under specific information handling protocols and reporting structures as part of its collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies.

In addition to today’s final agreement, Veoneer and Qualcomm Technologies have progressed on roadmap feature implementations. Arriver software is already functional on the Snapdragon Ride Platform, which will be available for automotive customers in coming months. 

The collaboration between the companies has been presented to a number of automotive OEMs and Tier-1 automotive suppliers with very positive feedback to the intended specifications and capabilities of the platform.
