We’ve been talking about the promise of cellular vehicle to everything technology – or C-V2X – for more than a year and have committed to adding the capability to our future vehicles to make people’s lives better with safer, more efficient driving.
But we know to truly unlock the power of this technology, we need to go even further. We need to create the innovations that will open and mediate the most beneficial connections in this connected world. We’re being realistic because we know the immediate and universal adoption of C-V2X is a daunting challenge. Not only are governments and some automakers still considering alternative technologies, the “everything” in C-V2X likely always will include other connectivity methods such as Bluetooth.
So our engineering teams are creating new C-V2X innovations in addition to our work to collaboratively develop its core technologies. These innovations show how C-V2X can be part of the fabric of communications that involve other wireless technologies.
