Qualcomm has been heavily invested in the XR industry since the early days, creating platforms like Snapdragon XR2 as well as its XR Enterprise Program (XEP) initiative last year. Today, the company has revealed that membership for the programme has doubled in the last twelve months, with over 30 new members joining.
Qualcomm XEP is designed to help accelerate the adoption of virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) technology by bringing together various solution providers from industries including architecture, aerospace, automotive, entertainment, food & beverage, healthcare, pharmaceutical, transportation, travel and many more.
Inaugural members included collaboration platform Spatial, education specialist VictoryXR and VRtuoso which helps businesses create immersive presentations. Joining this roster is SpringboardVR a software distribution platform for location-based entertainment (LBE), holoride which is putting VR entertainment into cars, surgical training platform Osso VR and workplace training solution company Talespin.
“We are all in on our commitment to driving the XR industry forward on a global scale, while simultaneously advancing XR technology for the enterprise,” said Brian Vogelsang, senior director of product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. in a statement. “We are incredibly proud of
what our Qualcomm XEP members have accomplished in the first year and are confident this collection of innovators will be a key component in meeting the increased demands in enterprise for collaboration and remote work, skills training, education and learning, data visualization, and health and wellness solutions.”
“holoride is extremely proud to have entered the Qualcomm XEP, as Qualcomm Technologies is a critical player in understanding what is necessary to ensure holoride readiness for both headsets and vehicles,” said Marcus Kuehne, CXO and co-founder of holoride. “Most consumers feel as though their time in the car is currently wasted. Our mission is to
change that with XR technology that provides passengers a way to be entertained, to learn and to even be more productive while getting from A to B.
