Qualcomm takes C-V2X to California

Qualcomm teamed with local officials in California and the state’s Department of Transportation (DoT) to trial cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology, aiming to demonstrate its ability to improve road safety and alleviate congestion.

Testing is already underway and expected to run throughout the remainder of the year. It is running within a three-mile corridor of two major roads featuring radio and processing units based on Qualcomm’s C-V2X platform installed along the side.

Qualcomm said the programme was designed by the San Diego Regional Proving Grounds (SDRPG) to test vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) use cases including notifications for speed limits, road closures and travel times. SDRPG is a government group comprising the California DoT, City of Chula Vista and San Diego Association of Governments.
