Connecting anything that moves: C-V2X, IoT telematics and the technology behind the connected and autonomous future of mobility

This presentation will address the 5G cellular technology and telematics underpinning C-V2X communication and autonomous mobility for passenger vehicles, heavy machinery (construction), industrial equipment and last-mile transport. As 5G technology converges with new attitudes about autonomous mobility and the Internet of Things (IoT), it is increasingly critical that OEMs understand how to implement the 5G cellular technology defining the future of automotive and industrial mobility. Topics include C-V2X, safety applications, autonomous driving features, 5G telematics, over-the-air upgrades/always-on connectivity and hyper-precise location.
