Valeo, Qualcomm collaboration to now support two and three-wheelers in India

Valeo and Qualcomm Technologies have announced the signature of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to explore opportunities to work together to innovate for the two-wheeler and three-wheeler segments in India. These collaborative efforts are an extension of the two companies’ long-term working relationship to deliver advanced computing units for telematics and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for software-defined vehicles (SDVs).

In addition to helping deliver enhanced safety to two-wheeler and three-wheelers, the companies will leverage their rich and complementary portfolios to accelerate the adoption of cloud-connected digital services, leading to greater safety and an always-connected digital experience for riders. They will couple Snapdragon Digital Chassis solutions for two-wheelers and new vehicle classes from Qualcomm Technologies with Valeo technologies for display, telematics and sensors as well as the Group’s software expertise to develop a comprehensive solution that includes embedded cellular modems, connected displays, driver assistance features and connected clusters.

These new features will enable riders to remain focused on the road while connected in real time to their favorite smartphone applications, navigation systems or cloud-based entertainment. Connectivity will also enhance the safety of the vehicle and the passengers on and off the road with real time traffic and potential risk on the road information as well as with software and cybersecurity updates and tracking monitoring of the two and three-wheelers.

“We are excited to extend our work with Qualcomm Technologies to two-wheelers and three-wheelers. It is an important new step forward in our long-lasting collaboration. Valeo’s engineering and manufacturing presence in India coupled with Snapdragon Digital Chassis solutions for two-wheelers and new vehicle classes will allow us to locally design, develop and produce a new generation of a connected display matching to local requirements, and serve our local customers thus contributing to making mobility in India safer and more connected,” said Marc Vrecko, President of Valeo’s Comfort and Driving Assistance Systems Business Group. 

“For many years, Qualcomm Technologies has worked with Valeo to anticipate the needs of OEMs and deliver ADAS and advanced telematics systems to their vehicles. We are pleased to extend our collaboration endeavors to accelerate the digital transformation of the dynamic 2-wheeler and 3-wheeler markets in India by offering rider solutions with advanced safety features and highly personalized and safe user experiences,” said Nakul Duggal, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Automotive & Cloud Computing, Qualcomm Technologies.
