BMW | September 07, 2023

BMW partners with AWS and Qualcomm to foster driving experiences Snapdragon Ride to be used to integrate AI-augmented video function The collaboration leverages AWS’s cloud-based compute and storage along with IoT sensing tools, generative AI and machine learning BMW has joined Amazon Web Services for a cloud partnership to propel IoT and AI capabilities into upcoming vehicle models set for a 2025 launch, augmented onboard ASAS software and sensors for driver warnings. Concurrently, BMW collaborated with Qualcomm Technologies to develop automated driving systems built on Qualcomm's Snapdragon Ride computer vision platform. BMW's collaboration with AWS and Qualcomm aims to streamline production and enhance vehicle functions. BMW stated that centralized cloud computing enables scalability to handle increasing data volumes generated by advanced automated functions like adaptive cruise control and automated lane changing. BMW's partnership with AWS and Qualcomm is geared towards optimizing production processes and elevating the capabilities of their vehicles. According to BMW, the utilization of centralized cloud computing allows for greater scalability, effectively managing the surging volumes of data generated by sophisticated automated features such as adaptive cruise control and automated lane changing. This enhances the efficiency of manufacturing operations and empowers vehicles to deliver more robust and responsive automated driving experiences.The integration of cloud computing addresses the challenges posed by increasing data demands, laying the foundation for future innovations in connected and autonomous vehicles. This collaboration leverages an existing ‘cloud data hub’ on AWS infrastructure, tapping into cloud-based computing, IoT sensing, storage, and AI tools, which include generative AI and machine learning. BMW reported that these technologies will enhance BMW's Neue Klasse line, enabling lifecycle management of the new driver assistance (ADAS) platform, automated braking, and steering functions. These Neue Klasse vehicles from 2025 will allow BMW engineers to respond swiftly to customer demands and introduce new features to enhance the automated driving experience. The Snapdragon Ride platform will integrate 360-degree AI-augmented video functionality for automated driving features. Nicolai Martin, Senior Vice President for driving experience at BMW, mentioned, In the next decade, consumer habits and expectations will drive more changes in the automotive industry than we’ve seen over the past 30 years. [Source: RCRWirelessNews] BMW's new driving platform will serve as a reference architecture for future BMW models, enabling the processing, cataloging, and storage of vast amounts of real-time driving data in AWS's Amazon S3 cloud storage engines. This data will support engineering teams in developing and training models using AWS's machine learning service, ‘SageMaker.’ General Manager of automotive and manufacturing, Wendy Bauer at AWS, stated, Automated driving is about more than just convenience; it’s also aimed at providing driver assistance technology that helps prevent injuries and saves lives.

Comcast and Broadcom to Develop the World’s First AI-Powered Access Network With Pioneering New Chipset

Business Wire | October 23, 2023

Comcast and Broadcom today announced joint efforts to develop the world’s first AI-powered access network with a new chipset that embeds artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) within the nodes, amps and modems that comprise the last few miles of Comcast’s network. With these new capabilities broadly deployed throughout the network, Comcast will be able to transform its operations by automating more network functions and deliver an improved customer experience through better and more actionable intelligence. Additionally, the new chipset will be the first in the world to incorporate DOCSIS 4.0 Full Duplex (FDX), Extended Spectrum (ESD) and the ability to run both simultaneously, enabling Internet service providers across the globe to deliver DOCSIS 4.0 services using a toolkit with technology options to meet their business needs. DOCSIS 4.0 is the next-generation network technology that will introduce symmetrical multi-gigabit Internet speeds, lower latency, and even better security and reliability to hundreds of millions of people and businesses over their existing connections without the need for major construction of new network infrastructure. On October 12, Comcast announced that it will begin to introduce the first customers in the world to Internet services powered by DOCSIS 4.0 using FDX. While the company will continue to leverage FDX, the collaboration with Broadcom will provide Comcast and other operators with additional options in the pursuit of delivering the best possible connectivity experience. The Xfinity 10G Network leverages the latest advancements in edge compute, digital optics and real-time, actionable telemetry to meet and exceed our customers’ constantly evolving connectivity needs, said Elad Nafshi, Chief Network Officer, Comcast Cable. With this new Unified DOCSIS4 chipset from Broadcom, we can broadly deploy transformational AI network capabilities alongside symmetrical multi-gig speeds. FDX is the best technology for Comcast, but this groundbreaking unified chipset will provide the entire industry with options when upgrading their nodes, amps, and cable modems for DOCSIS 4.0. The new end-to-end chipsets will be the industry’s first to incorporate AI and ML capabilities that will transform the operations and customer experience functions by: Making smarter network performance decisions using network diagnostics insights produced by both local and cloud AI. Enhanced monitoring and issue detection using bandwidth-efficient telemetry data. Transforming network maintenance of the network using real time issue localization plus predictive and self-healing network intelligence. Protecting network facilities and customers with improved cybersecurity intrusion detection. Assisting customers more effectively through local and cloud-based AI. Monitoring home IoT devices for connectivity disruptions. All these capabilities, and more, are achieved while reducing network latency and insulating customer data to ensure the utmost privacy standards. “By enabling a toolkit that includes FDX, ESD or both simultaneously, this new Unified DOCSIS4 chipset incorporates the advantages of both technologies and will enable economies of scale as well as a common retail modem for the industry,” said Rich Nelson, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Broadband Video Group, Broadcom. “The edge network and in-home capabilities of this chipset will improve network intelligence and reliability to create an improved broadband experience with enhanced privacy protection and cyber security for the consumer.” Comcast and Broadcom are designing and building the new chipset based upon CableLabs’ DOCSIS 4.0 specifications. The companies have a history of working together to introduce innovations that have pushed the industry to the next generation of connectivity. In 2021, Comcast conducted the world’s first full duplex multi-gigabit symmetrical test on Broadcom-built silicon. In January 2022 the companies tested the first Full Duplex DOCSIS 4.0 system-on-chip (SoC) cable modem that delivered symmetrical speeds faster than 4 Gbps. Later that year, Comcast successfully tested the final technical component of necessary to deliver multi-gig symmetrical speed powered by DOCSIS 4.0 throughout its network with 10G smart amps built on a Broadcom-developed reference design. The companies expect to begin trials early in 2024 and to begin deploying the new chipset in live networks before the end of the same year.
