L5 Adoption Hinges On 5G/6G

In addition, 5G and 6G networks will help fully autonomous vehicles become mainstream. Humans will be less anxious about ceding control of a car to a computer, or so the theory goes, if the vehicle is able to quickly and clearly communicate with its passengers about what it is doing and why. Also, consumers will be more likely to embrace these vehicles if they are able to use the network to create a more custom and entertaining experience than can be found in a car with a lower level of autonomy.

Of course, no one knows what exactly it will take to reach L5 or mainstream adoption. Technical challenges, like navigating through a snowstorm with blocked sensors and social challenges like government regulation are not easily solved with wireless networks. B
