Qualcomm has announced its Snapdragon automotive platforms have been selected for inclusion in the next generation of infotainment systems in Geely vehicles.
The high-performing multimedia and graphics capabilities of Snapdragon 820Am platform will benefit the future generations of iNTEC, the Chinese automaker’s technology package. The package includes G-Netlink, a system that allows drivers to interface with their vehicles through various ways, including remote control via app to lock, or unlocking the vehicle.
“China is emerging as a source of automotive innovation, not only benefiting Chinese customers but also the rest of the world, by quickly adopting and commercialising leading edge car technology,” said Patrick Little, SVP and general manager for automotive at Qualcomm. “We are pleased to work with Geely and the Chinese automotive ecosystem to help define the future of connected car experiences and use our industry-leading technologies to accelerate its realisation.”
Qualcomm has also unveiled the new Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai 2017. These next-generation ultrasonic fingerprint solutions will bring new and enhanced features to the previous generation Qualcomm Snapdragon Sense ID fingerprint technology.
The suite brings some interesting features such as, sensors for Display, Glass and Metal, detection of directional gestures, and underwater fingerprint match and device wake-up. It is also the first commercially announced integrated ultrasonic-based mobile solution to detect heart beat and blood flow for improved mobile authentication experiences.
The Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensor for Display is the mobile industry’s first commercially announced multi-functional ultrasonic solution capable of scanning through OLED display stacks of up to 1200um, along with enrolling and matching. However, the Qualcomm Fingerprint Sensors for Glass and Metal are the first commercially announced to scan through up to 800 µm of cover glass and up to 650 µm of aluminium.
