The newly launched Qualcomm Aware™ Platform delivers cutting-edge global location data, connectivity, and easy-to-use deployments for logistics, asset-tracking, supply chain management, and more. With Mapbox APIs as part of the Qualcomm Aware ecosystem, location intelligence is entering business decision-making like never before.
Location technology for developers
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. is the world’s leading wireless technology innovator and provider of foundational technologies that enable the smartphone ecosystem and the ‘internet of things’ (IoT). The Qualcomm Aware Platform combines industry-leading silicon, a broad hardware and software partner ecosystem, with simple, secure, and scalable cloud services to provide a comprehensive and versatile IoT platform to accelerate the digital transformation of industries.
Mapbox is working with Qualcomm Technologies to help support the core mapping and visualization features of the Qualcomm Aware Platform. The highly customizable API-first architecture of the Qualcomm Aware Platform is designed with developers in mind, enabling interoperability with partner clouds and leading enterprise software tools including Mapbox APIs and data products.
“We are pleased to help provide core mapping and visualization features of the Qualcomm Aware™ Platform. The customizable design of Qualcomm Aware, combined with the ability to integrate tailored location features with Mapbox mapping and routing APIs, means businesses in supply chains and logistics will be able to build a complete hardware, connectivity, and service solution for the specific real-time location intelligence they require.”
- Peter Sirota, CEO, Mapbox
Transforming logistics and supply chains
The initial focus for the Qualcomm Aware Platform will be businesses operating in supply chains and logistics, industries that need to continuously monitor for disruptions and plan for unexpected shifts in supply and demand. Whether it’s assessing how a winter storm will show operations, tracking how long a shipment is sitting at a particular location, or detecting potential hazards and identifying alternative routes, the Qualcomm Aware Platform is built for ubiquitous, real-time asset visibility and control.
“Qualcomm Aware is designed to support organizations across industries with a scalable, cost-effective, capital efficient investment solution that delivers an accelerated time to market, simplifies digital transformation, and delivers transformative insights needed to mitigate risk, make more informed business decisions, and navigate challenges across industries.”
- Jeff Torrance, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Connected Smart Systems, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
Real-time location awareness
In the Qualcomm Aware Platform, Mapbox location services can be combined with Qualcomm Technologies’ hardware and software, including Qualcomm Technologies’ positioning techniques and algorithms which are backed by optimized GNSS, cellular and Wi-Fi based location services, and a robust global signal database consisting of billions of wireless access points and hundreds of millions of cells. Altogether, the Qualcomm Aware ecosystem powers robust connectivity and precise monitoring, even when devices are offline, indoors, or underground. The result is real-time, accurate location tracking visualized in an easy-to-use and customizable interface.
Qualcomm Aware is expected to be available later this year.
