Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) is an important technology for improved road safety and the future of autonomous driving, and momentum continues to build around C-V2X with a broad ecosystem support. Following Audi, Ford, Groupe PSA and SAIC announcing their support of Qualcomm’s first C-V2X commercial solution, more news started to break about automotive Tier 1 suppliers using Qualcomm’s C-V2X solutions for testing and upcoming commercial implementations. Automakers, Tier 1 suppliers, mobile operators, semiconductor companies, test equipment vendors, telecom suppliers, traffic signal suppliers, road operators and municipalities are closely collaborating to accelerate C-V2X technology development and commercialization. The recent news from AT&T, Ford, Nokia, Qualcomm and McCain announcing the first US C-V2X trials in San Diego is just an example of this collaboration.

Why is C-V2X gaining traction and support from key automotive players?

Join our Qualcomm experts for this webinar to know why and get your facts straight about:

  • What are the design aspects that enable C-V2X to provide superior performance and reliability for automotive safety?
  • Can C-V2X be ready for commercial deployment in cars for 2020? How?
  • How does the C-V2X evolution to 5G address new complementary use cases, while maintaining backward compatibility?
  • What are the economic benefits that C-V2X brings to automakers, as well as infrastructure providers?
