Qualcomm claims ‘significant’ progress on cellular vehicle-to-everything tech

Chip giant Qualcomm has revealed that a number of cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) products from automotive and infrastructure suppliers, featuring its 9150 C-V2X Platform, have completed certification in accordance with the European Radio Equipment Directive (RED) Certification…

Qualcomm expects C-V2X to gain global momentum and anticipates that early product availability will accelerate adoption of the solution in the region. It noted that field tests were transitioning to early deployments in China while in the US similar trials had shown the “significant” range, reliability and performance advantage of C-V2X direct communications, in addition to the ability for C-V2X to work in congested environments.

The firm also note that in Europe, the recent plug tests organised by ETSI and 5GAA demonstrated multi-supplier interoperability, while multiple corridor projects are being planned to test the technology on the road, starting from 5G-CARMEN and Concorda projects.
