OEMs as Data-Driven Tech Companies

How will automakers use 5G to forge super-connections between drivers and vehicles?

Much of the hype around 5G technologies has been focused on smart cities, autonomous vehicles, and the disruption these models in adjacent industries such as energy, distribution, and insurance. 5G, or the fifth generation of cellular data technology, is a collection of technologies that form a specific technology standard to which devices connect to for internet access. So far, 5G’s customer value proposition has been faster speeds, and the expansion of 5G has already re-shaped car driver experiences. Millions of vehicles across the globe are connected to mobile networks, whether that’s for in-car entertainment, navigation in real time or e-commerce services. The automotive world is heading towards V2X (vehicle-to-everything) and the immediate transmission of data between cars, humans, and machines.
