Volkswagen to use Qualcomm chips for automated driving


Cariad, a software company from the Volkswagen Group, will be using Qualcomm system-on-chips (SoCs) for its software platform, the companies said in a statement.

The SoCs from Qualcomm Technologies’ Snapdragon Ride Platform portfolio will be a hardware component in Cariad’s standardized and scalable compute platform, which are targeted for VW vehicles from the middle of the decade.

Cariad develops automated driving functions up to Level 4 based on the Ride platform.
