SoftBank and Honda team up to research 5G in connected cars

Japanese telecommunication and automotive giants SoftBank and Honda are teaming up for a joint research program that will look at how fifth generation mobile networks, or 5G, can be used to improve connected car technology.
5G promises higher-capacity connectivity compared to existing 4G standards, and carriers around the world are currently investing in the infrastructure needed to enable its eventual rollout. In fact, both the burgeoning internet of things (IoT) and autonomous vehicle industries will lean heavily on 5G wireless networks.
