2019 is the year we’re going to start to see self-driving cars on our streets. Of course they’re not going to be cars that you and I are able to drive, but the race is on for who is going to come out with self driving car for the average consumer.

Nicole & Don look into who are the major players in the autonomous drive space are. Most car makers are claiming to have a seat at the table, but the truth is that there are only a few that are actually developing technology. Many are relying on Tier 1’s like Bosch or ZF others have only just started and are claiming to be further ahead than they are. We take a hard look at automotive and sum up who the major players in the race are and what kind of advantage we think each holds.

The Mobile Geeks Mobility podcast dives into the stage of autonomous drive as of April 2019.

Qualcomm AI Day 2019 – Mobile Geeks Podcast Episode 009 http://www.mobilegeeks.com/010-qualcomm-ai-day-2019/ http://www.mobilegeeks.com/010-qualcomm-ai-day-2019/#respond Mon, 15 Apr 2019 08:00:52 +0000

Qualcomm has been active in the automotive space for the last 5 years, but it’s been easy to overlook because their news has mostly been focused on communications modules. Qualcomm’s massive patent database on telecommunications, 3, 4, & 5G is an easy transition to make.  However, what isn’t as widely talked about is their infotainment system and autonomous drive intentions.

Qualcomm is taking their know-how in Snapdragon mobile processors and applying it to Infotainment. Snapdragon has built a reputation in high graphics paired with low power consumption. They’re hoping this combo will pay off in electric vehicles. It was easy to assume that Qualcomm might be starting off with midrange cars in their initial push, that’s not to say they aren’t aiming at this segment. However, Qualcomm is already making moves in the premium segment as they’re powering the new Porsche 912 infotainment system.

AI has become the buzzword, the catalyst, the thing that all processor makers want a piece of, and that all software vendors are eager to invest in to develop new features and new functionality. Nicole Scott attended Qualcomm’s AI day in San Fransico and talks to Don Dalhmann about everything she learned. She walked in with the same level of skepticism as Don has at the start of this podcast, how can anyone compete with Nvidia in this space?
