Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) would provide improved performance, support multiple business models and offer an evolution path from LTE to 5G to fit increasing V2X requirements. By the statement, telecom and automotive sectors will work closely on C-V2X use cases and scenarios, solutions and trials, standardization and spectrum, business model and go-to-market strategies to achieve the success of thriving C-V2X market and create a new era of Internet of vehicles.
Christoph Voigt, Chairman of the 5GAA board said, “5GAA was created to connect telecom industry and vehicle manufacturers and work closely together to develop end-to-end solutions for future mobility and transportation services. We look forward to working with GTI and the other relevant organizations to create a successful C-V2X ecosystem”.
Craig Ehrlich, Chairman of GTI said “C-V2X is one of the key areas in GTI 2.0. We are very glad to cooperate and communicate with 5GAA in the fields of C-V2X technology, standard and business models, and take advantages of our own industry and platform to speed up the global commercialization of C-V2X.”
