In recent years, great changes have taken place in the whole automobile industry. The rise of new energy vehicles and the maturity of automatic driving and auxiliary driving technologies have greatly promoted the improvement of automobile intelligence. Automobiles have gradually transformed from traditional fuel transportation tools to intelligent terminal products connected to the network and cloud.
In the process of the development of automobile intelligence, in addition to the research and development of automatic and intelligent automobile hardware, it is also essential to create a more stable, safer and more accurate network environment and control software, so that it can be combined with the hardware. This requires not only the efforts of various traditional automobile enterprises and new automobile manufacturing forces, but also the support of 5g, chip and other technology suppliers.
Recently, China Automotive News published an interview article with Meng Pu, chairman of Qualcomm in China. From this article, we can also see how technology manufacturers support the development of automobile intelligence through the enabling role of Qualcomm in automobiles.
For car drivers and passengers, the most intuitive feeling about the intelligence of a car is the configuration in the car. From the newly released car products in the past two years, you can clearly feel that there are more screens in the interior of new models, which means that technological innovation will also bring new changes to the way of life and entertainment in the car, For example, wireless connection technology can bring high-speed and stable network support for entertainment projects such as 4K movies, music, cloud games, etc.
Meng Pu revealed in the interview that in this regard, at present, Qualcomm has launched the snapdragon digital cockpit platform, which provides powerful computing power for in car entertainment and vehicle safety. 20 of the world's 25 top auto companies have launched the Qualcomm snapdragon digital cockpit platform.
We can also see that Xiaopeng P5, Ford Mustang mach-e, Weima W6, Cadillac lyriq, Geely Xingyue L and other models released at this year's Shanghai auto show all adopt the snapdragon digital cockpit platform.
In terms of 5g enabled Internet of vehicles, in July last year, 3GPP released the first 5g based c-v2x technology, which can use 5g technology to provide greater bandwidth, lower latency and higher reliability for the field of Internet of vehicles.
C-v2x can not only solve the connection problem between intelligent vehicles and transportation facilities, but also further enhance the perception of vehicles to the environment and related road participants, so as to further improve traffic safety and travel.
As an important member of 3GPP, Qualcomm has been actively developing c-v2x technology, and has released the snapdragon 5g platform supporting c-v2x technology, the world's first c-v2x oriented Qualcomm 9150 c-v2x chipset, and a complete c-v2x reference platform for roadside units and vehicle units. At present, Chinese partners, including operators, module manufacturers and automobile manufacturers, have adopted Qualcomm's c-v2x vehicle networking technology to jointly provide assistance for the development of the automobile industry.
The continuous progress of 5g, AI and other technologies has also provided the basis for the automatic driving of electric vehicles in the future. The fully automatic driving vehicle may become a reality in the near future. Major automobile manufacturers are also working hand in hand with technology manufacturers to move in this direction. For example, the snapdragon ride automatic driving platform previously launched by Qualcomm will support Great Wall Motor to build intelligent driving system and accelerate the realization of automatic driving next year.
Meng Pu summarized these layouts in the interview: in the aspect of intelligent connected vehicles, Qualcomm's core business areas are digital cockpit, vehicle connected and c-v2x (cellular Internet of vehicles), ADAS and autopilot, and vehicle to cloud.
These technologies not only represent the trend of Qualcomm's automotive business, but also represent the development direction of intelligent connected vehicles.
Meng Pu said that in the development process of automotive intelligence, Qualcomm has always been the role of technology empowerment, enabling the development of various industries including automobiles with 5g and AI technology.
In the future, after technology enablers such as Qualcomm increase their support for the intelligent automobile industry, combined with 5g, AI, cloud computing and other technical capabilities, complete automatic driving and intelligent transportation will also become possible. It can be imagined that in the future world, smart cars will become an intelligent travel space through 5g connection, providing people with intelligent travel experience, not just a means of transportation.
