Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and JLR announced that the companies will work together to bring 5G capabilities to select next-generation JLR vehicles across its brands Range Rover, Defender, Discovery and Jaguar. As a part of JLR’s efforts in building a sustainability-rich vision of modern luxury by design, the ongoing technology collaboration between Qualcomm Technologies and JLR aims to support advanced and integrated digital cockpit and infotainment systems to JLR’s new vehicles.
With the Snapdragon® Auto 5G Modem-RF from Qualcomm Technologies, JLR is equipped to create modern luxury in-vehicle experiences powered by efficient and seamless connectivity.
Drivers and passengers will benefit from direct, low latency connectivity outside of the car, with vehicles connecting to each other and their surroundings for safer driving experiences, generating real-time data that can inform new connected-car services, and higher levels of autonomy.
This technology collaboration builds on the longstanding relationship between Qualcomm Technologies and JLR, who both aim to provide the latest capabilities to future cars with Snapdragon Automotive platforms.
The Snapdragon Auto 5G Modem-RF is a key component of the Snapdragon Digital Chassis™ technology suite. With ultra-high speeds and ultra-low latency, the platform is designed to power immersive in-vehicle and always-connected driving experiences. By leveraging the Snapdragon Auto 5G Modem-RF system’s positioning, Wi-Fi technologies, and direct vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-roadside infrastructure (V2I) communications, JLR vehicles will also offer connected services for a highly personalized and upgradable in-vehicle experience, as well as advanced safety and mobility benefitting applications.
JLR vehicles with 5G connectivity based on Snapdragon Digital Chassis solutions can be expected on the road in 2025.
“JLR have partnered with Qualcomm Technologies for more than five years and our latest collaboration continues to strengthen our relationship,” said David Nesbitt, Director of Digital Product Platform at JLR. “As cars become increasingly intelligent, using 5G capability and developing innovative technology solutions will put us at the forefront of delivering the best services for a fully connected, modern luxury experience for our clients.”
“Through our technology collaboration with JLR, we’re leveraging Qualcomm Technologies’ long-established expertise in 5G and wireless innovation to further digitally transform JLR’s future vehicles,” said Jeff Arnold, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “Next-generation telematics systems and 5G connectivity capabilities are helping deliver unparalleled connected and intelligent in-vehicle experiences to JLR drivers and passengers. We are excited to work with JLR to better meet their customers’ needs.”
