Connecting Vehicles Today and in the 5G Era with C-V2X image

“Backed by a strong and diverse ecosystem of suppliers, C-V2X is commercially available and poised for widespread deployment in both vehicles and roadside infrastructure. Extensive testing and trials have demonstrated that C-V2X is consistently more reliable than alternative technologies – it is fast becoming the technology of choice for intelligent transport systems worldwide.”

Jim Misener, Sr. Director and Product Management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

The industry standard for vehicle communication, Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology is commercially available globally today. Standardised by 3GPP, this 4G and 5G-based technology is designed to connect vehicles to each other, to roadside infrastructure, to pedestrians and cyclists, and to cloud-based services. It promises to transform information and safety services on highways and within cities both by connecting individual vehicles and by enabling the development of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) that reduce congestion and pollution and enhance travel. It can help cities to become smarter and support increasingly automated transport systems that are safer and more efficient than today’s transport networks.

“C-V2X technology is set to revolutionise the mobility ecosystem and the way vehicles and drivers interact with the world, including vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. It is an essential stepping stone for the ongoing digitization of transportation by providing real-time, highly reliable, and actionable information flows to enable road safety, traffic efficiency and environmental progress. The auto and telecom industry – collaborating under 5GAA – supports the idea that 5G will further enable mission-critical enhanced V2X communications and be the ultimate platform to enable impactful C-ITS services.”
