As vehicles morph from machines into devices, companies such as Qualcomm Technologies are developing digital analogs that mirror the terms of older vehicle systems.
Qualcomm's Snapdragon Digital Chassis is one example. It comprises multiple cloud-connected platforms that manage telematics and connectivity, digital driver and infotainment screens, driver assistance and autonomy features.
The Snapdragon Digital Chassis is designed to help connected and intelligent vehicles keep all the information they collect under control. Automakers can customize each component to meet the needs of each model that uses the system, and those components are also continually upgradable, Qualcomm said.
