In November, Arriver announced that it would collaborate with Qualcomm and BMW to bring the learning algorithms with full vision functions with the help of the Snapdragon Ride Vision System. The newly launched Ride Vision System is designed to offer modular architecture, which can increase the flexibility for automakers to combine parking systems, crowdsourcing, driver monitoring system, localization modules, and cellular vehicle-to-everything technologies.
As Qualcomm puts it, the system is customizable, and manufacturers will be able to change it based on their own needs. The company will offer a software development kit that will help in the integration and development of drive policies as well as driver monitoring solutions to meet their specific requirements.
“As we further collaborate with the automakers and Tier 1 suppliers, our latest Snapdragon Ride Vision System aims to address a growing need for a more open, adaptable, and scalable platform for computer vision solutions,” said Nakul Duggal, senior vice president, and GM, automotive, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
