Multinational automotive company Stellantis NV and Qualcomm Technologies have entered a multi-year collaboration to utilize Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon automotive platforms to deliver intelligent, customizable, and immersive in-vehicle experiences to Stellantis’ 14 automotive brands beginning in 2024.
Stellantis will use next-generation Snapdragon digital platforms to power in-vehicle communication and infotainment systems for its STLA Smart Cockpit software architecture. According to Stellantis, Snapdragon platforms are engineered to deliver high-definition graphics to a touch and voice-controlled cockpit console as well as crystal-clear voice communications throughout the vehicle’s cabin.
Snapdragon platforms will also be used to enhance the Stellantis artificial intelligence-powered technology platform STLA Brain and help boost the in-vehicle personal assistant capabilities.
“Qualcomm Technologies’ broad experience in automotive and scale as a semiconductor leader will enable us to vertically integrate key elements of our new platforms and more closely manage the complete electronics supply chain to provide access to the best technologies,” said Carlos Tavares, Stellantis CEO.
“By creating open, scalable, and comprehensive automotive platforms that encompasses semiconductors, systems, software, and services, we are empowering Stellantis, as well as the broader automotive ecosystem, to lead the transformation to the digital era of automobiles,” said Cristiano Amon, president and CEO, Qualcomm Incorporated.
