Visteon is showing new cockpit electronics platforms using Qualcomm Technologies products at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.

New Android infotainment systems and SmartCore domain controllers use third generation Qualcomm Snapdragon automotive cockpit platforms providing immersive graphics, multimedia, computer vision and artificial intelligence (AI).

SmartCore, claimed as the first cockpit domain controller to appear in a production vehicle a year ago, can independently operate several cockpit domains on one system-on-chip through a single driver interface.

The platforms are designed to support higher levels of computing and intelligence needed for advanced capabilities featured in upcoming vehicles, including AI virtual assistance, natural interactions between the vehicle and driver, and contextual safety use cases. New Visteon platforms with Snapdragon are expected to launch with multiple automakers in the 2020-21 model years, the supplier said without elaborating.

Visteon will also use Snapdragon for DriveCore – an open autonomous driving platform consisting of the hardware, middleware and frameworks to develop machine learning algorithms for object classification, detection, path planning and execution.
