Fully-Featured Intelligent Electric SUV Flagship Hongqi E-HS9 Features Qualcomm C-V2X Solution, Creating Premium Intelligent Connected Driving Experiences
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. announced today that the company is working with Quectel Wireless Solutions Co., Ltd. to support intelligent connectivity technologies in Hongqi’s E-HS9 vehicles. The new Hongqi E-HS9 – a full-size intelligent electric sports utility vehicle (SUV) of the Hongqi brand – features the Quectel AG15 module integrated with the Qualcomm® 9150 Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) chipset solution.
It is the industry’s first production vehicle that has achieved 100% validation of driving assistance warning in multiple LTE-V2X communication scenarios and has now become the world’s first commercialized vehicle to feature LTE-V2X technology. Additionally, Hongqi E-HS9’s sub-meter high-precision positioning capabilities, supported by Qualcomm® Dead Reckoning and Qualcomm Technologies’ comprehensive positioning fusion technologies, cater to users of this vehicle in pursuit of superior safety, intelligence, and technological innovation.
Also known as C-V2X across the globe, LTE-V2X is a global solution for V2X communications. It is designed to support improved automotive safety, traffic efficiency, and automated driving using high performance real-time direct communication between vehicles, as well as with roadside infrastructure.
The Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset is Qualcomm Technologies’ first-announced solution for C-V2X, designed to improve vehicle communication range and reliability and to lower latency with intelligent connectivity technology. The integration of the Quectel AG35 module with the (i) Qualcomm® MDM9628 modem for automotive, (ii) Qualcomm® Dead Reckoning, and (iii) Qualcomm Technologies’ comprehensive positioning fusion technologies with inertial measurement and other automotive sensors, supports sub-meter level high-precision positioning on the Hongqi E-HS9, which allows for safer and better driving experiences to this intelligent connected vehicle, and enhances mobility efficiency.
To assess its intelligent connectivity capabilities, the Hongqi E-HS9 was tested under the L3 autonomous driving mode over multiple V2X use cases—including Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Blind Spot Warning/Lane Change Warning (BSW/LCW) and Intersection Collision Warning (ICW)—and the pass rate of 100% effectively validated the robustness of the C-V2X technology.
