Detroit-based General Motors Co. has announced its continued relationship with Qualcomm Technologies, a wireless company in California, to create advanced technologies for vehicles.
The companies are working to develop digital cockpits, next-generation telematics systems, and future advanced driver assistance systems.
“We are thrilled to be at the heart GM’s automotive fleet as the industry embarks on the next generation of mobility with highly advanced digital cockpit, telematics, and ADAS,” says Nakul Duggal, senior vice president and general manager of automotive at Qualcomm. “We look forward in continuing our work with GM to define the future of intelligent and connected vehicles.”
GM will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit Platforms, part of the tech company’s third generation solutions. The systems will provide immersive in-vehicle experiences and artificial intelligence-enabled experiences for in-car virtual assistance, interactions between the vehicle and driver, and contextual safety use cases.
Qualcomm has supplied GM with connected car applications including safety and diagnostics in connected Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles. As an extension of the relationship, GM worked with Qualcomm Technologies for C-V2X, which has launched with the Buick GL8 MPV, now available in China.
Qualcomm has been working to develop, launch, and expand 5G. Its technologies are found in 3G, 4G, and 5G smartphones, and it works in the automotive, internet of things, and computing industries.
