The software will be based on the current BMW automated driving software stack first introduced with the BMW iX in 2021. The automaker says that BMW's next-generation automated driving system will be ported on the Snapdragon Ride Vision system-on-chip (SoC) including Arriver Computer Vision and the Snapdragon Ride Platform’s compute SoC controllers managed by Snapdragon Car-to-Cloud Services platform.

Speaking about this collaboration, Nicolai Martin, Senior Vice President, Driving Experience, BMW Group, said that this joint software development is an important milestone for the BMW Group with regards to its next-generation automated driving platform. "To enable sophisticated and safe functionalities in a vehicle you need state-of-the-art software in all components of the digital value chain. This forms the backbone for intelligent driver assistance systems," Martin further added.

Besides working on autonomous driving technologies, the three companies are open for further collaboration as well, said the German luxury car brand. Autonomous driving technology is a segment where several global auto majors have been working for quite some time.
