Qualcomm Joins Forces with Leading Automotive Companies in China

Qualcomm Joins Forces with Leading Automotive Companies in China to Showcase Interoperability of LTE-V2X Direct Communication. Companies Demonstrate Readiness of 3GPP LTE-V2X Chipset Solutions, China-SAE ITS Stack Compatibility, and Valuable Road Safety & Traffic Efficiency Use Cases That Are Ready for Commercialization.


Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), announced today the Company’s continued efforts with China’s growing ecosystem of leading automakers and suppliers to commercialize LTE Vehicle-to-Everything (LTE-V2X) direct communication technology based on 3GPP Release 14 specifications. Also known as C-V2X across the globe, LTE-V2X is a global solution for V2X communications, which is designed to support improved automotive safety, traffic efficiency, and automated driving using high performance and reliable real-time direct communication between vehicles, as well as with roadside infrastructure, and is on an evolution path supporting additional functionality as part of 5G New Radio (5G NR). Qualcomm Technologies, working alongside automakers including Audi China, BAIC, ChangAn, Geely and Great Wall and others, as well as China SAE ITS software stack providers Genvict, Nebula Link and Savari, Inc., will host China’s first large scale multi-interoperability live demonstrations of LTE-V2X during the SAE China Congress Exhibition (SAECCE) event in Shanghai. Qualcomm Technologies is working with Datang Telecom Group, also known as China Academy of Telecommunications Technology (CATT), and additional players of China’s automotive ecosystem to host these live demonstrations showcasing multi-vendor chipset interoperability and intelligent transportation system (ITS) stack compatibility between automakers and roadside infrastructure. The demonstrations are expected to utilize the Qualcomm® 9150 C-V2X chipset solution and Datang’s LTE-V2X module, the DMD31, both of which were the first chipset-level LTE-V2X solutions announced as interoperable in August.

The demonstrations are expected to utilize passenger cars provided by the aforementioned automakers, all of which will be equipped with LTE-V2X technology using the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution to demonstrate the benefits of vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications. V2V and V2I communication supports collision avoidance and traffic efficiency applications built on top of the China-SAE ITS stacks provided by Genvict, Nebula Link and Savari Inc. Roadside units (RSUs) featuring the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution are expected to be stationed along the roadways and on traffic signals, providing comprehensive V2X services such as local dynamic map, signal phase and timing and roadside sensor sharing.

Collectively, the seven V2V and V2I use cases that will be demonstrated include: Optimal Speed Advisory, Lane Change Alert / Blind Spot Alert, Emergency Brake Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Emergency Vehicle Warning, Intersection Collision Warning, and Slippery Road Alert.

LTE-V2X PC5-based direct communication operates in the 5.9 GHz spectrum that the China government recently designated for LTE-V2X ITS applications and works independently of cellular operator network involvement. Through these demonstrations, China is well-positioned to demonstrate leadership in LTE-V2X with commercial readiness for RSUs, onboard units and vehicle integration in 2019.

Efforts driving the commercialization of LTE-V2X is an extension of the long-standing relationships Qualcomm Technologies holds with leading automotive companies in China. All major global automakers currently use products from Qualcomm Technologies’ broad portfolio of automotive solutions across telematics, infotainment and connectivity to meet the increasing consumer demand of technologically advanced vehicles. With more than 15 years supplying technology solutions to the automotive industry, more than 100 million vehicles have been deployed globally with Qualcomm Technologies’ LTE and 3G modems. Qualcomm Technologies is today the #1 semiconductor supplier in telematics and Bluetooth® car connectivity and offers one of the broadest portfolios of automotive technologies across telematics, in-car connectivity and infotainment.

“Geely’s goal in developing connected vehicles is not just for the user’s convenience, it was always to improve safety. When vehicles can see and talk to each other, accident avoidance and passenger safety increases dramatically,” said Mr. Shen Zi Yu, vice president of Geely Automobile Research Institute. “Geely already has over a million connected vehicles on the road and by 2021, and we anticipate all Geely models to be equipped to handle 5G NR networks with V2X capabilities.”

“With the broad deployment of LTE-V2X technology, we expect to see an increase in traffic efficiency and reduction in the number of traffic accidents,” said Dr. Ying Zhang of Great Wall Motors. “Qualcomm Technologies is a leader in information and communications technologies, and we believe their Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset solution will play a large role in helping auto manufacturers and others in the automotive industry to feature LTE-V2X technology in new vehicles, helping to create a new generation of safe, intelligent and reliable cars.”

“The industry has been waiting for the large-scale interoperability test & demo for a while,” said Ning He, CTO and Chief Scientist of Genvict. “This will be the first step as well as a milestone towards C-V2X commercialization, and we are happy to work closely with Qualcomm Technologies to make it happen.

“C-V2X enables better traffic safety, mobility and environment by its high-reliability, high-efficiency and low-latency communication performance. This event is China’s first large scale multi-interoperability live demonstrations for LTE-V2X, which shows the readiness of LTE-V2X chipset and applications,” said Prof. Danya Yao, the Chief Scientist of Nebula Link. “Nebula Link is proud to provide LTE-V2X roadside units, intelligent traffic lights and onboard units for this multi-interoperability demonstration as we are pleased to cooperate with Qualcomm Technologies, as well as the whole industries, to accelerate the commercialization of LTE-V2X technologies.

“We are pleased to have Qualcomm Technologies’ support to integrate our solutions with global automakers,” said Ravi Puvvala, CEO, Savari, Inc. “Savari is proud to bring its matured and patented V2X technology from the US and Europe to China’s growing LTE-V2X ecosystem, which will be the largest in the world.”

“China’s automotive industry is experiencing a tremendous amount of growth in automotive innovation and we are excited to contribute with breakthrough technologies that help to transform transportation, making it safer and more efficient,” said Nakul Duggal, vice president of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “We are pleased to see our 9150 C-V2X chipset solution play an integral role in showcasing the benefits of LTE-V2X at this week’s event, as well look forward to working alongside China’s leading automotive companies in bringing this technology to commercialization as early as next year.”
