Qualcomm Technologies and General Motors (GM) on Tuesday announced their "continued relationship to deliver premium experiences to upcoming vehicles".

Building on a long-standing relationship spanning multiple cellular technology generations, the companies will use their expertise to develop advanced technology needed for next generation vehicles. Through this relationship, Qualcomm Technologies is working with GM to power digital cockpits, next telematics systems and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). 

For future vehicles, GM is redefining the in-vehicle experience, using the power of the third generation Qualcomm Snapdragon automotive cockpit platforms. The high performance digital cockpit systems will provide new and immersive in-vehicle experiences as well as intuitive artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled experiences for in-car virtual assistance, natural interactions between the vehicle and driver, and contextual safety use cases.   

Qualcomm Technologies has worked with GM for years to supply communication products for 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 sold in China.  

"Qualcomm Technologies and General Motors have a strong track record of delivering innovative solutions to our customers," said Dan Nicholson, GM VP global electrification, controls, software and electronics. "Bolstering our relationship is key to leading the industry through a time of unprecedented growth in vehicle and infrastructure technology."

"GM is a leading technology pioneer in the automotive industry. We are thrilled to be at the heart of GM's automotive fleet as the industry embarks on the next generation of mobility with highly advanced digital cockpit, telematics and ADAS," said Nakul Duggal, senior VP & general manager, automotive, at Qualcomm.

"We look forward in continuing our work with GM to define the future of intelligent and connected vehicles."
