Qualcomm and LG bring 5G and Cellular-V2X communications into vehicles

Qualcomm and LG announced coordinated efforts to facilitate testing and adoption of 5G and Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) technologies, which they expect to showcase during the first half of 2018. LG is developing advanced automotive connectivity solutions based on Qualcomm Technologies’ connected car platform using the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X16 LTE modem complemented by the QCA65x4 Wi-Fi 802.11ac solution.

Today, Qualcomm and LG announced coordinated efforts to facilitate testing and adoption of 5G and Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) communications into vehicles. Qualcomm Technologies and LG expect to showcase these next-generation wireless technologies through trials during the first half of 2018. This work builds on the long-established relationship between Qualcomm Technologies and LG since the two Companies delivered their first telematics system in 2004.

On the path to 5G, LG is developing advanced automotive connectivity solutions based on Qualcomm Technologies’ connected car platform, which features support for Gigabit LTE speeds using the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ X16 LTE modem, and is complemented by the QCA65x4 Wi-Fi 802.11ac solution. The connected car platform also supports 802.11p/DSRC and C-V2X, based upon 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 14 specifications.

The company claims C-V2X technology is a key feature for safety conscious and autonomous driving solutions. C-V2X complements other Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensors, such as cameras, radar and LIDAR, to provide information about the vehicle’s surroundings, even in non-line-of-sight (NLOS) scenarios.
