AT&T, Ford, Nokia and Qualcomm Launch Cellular-V2X Connected Car Technology

Trials planned for the San Diego regional proving ground with support from McCain

AT&T, Ford, Nokia, and Qualcomm Technologies Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Inc., are helping to accelerate the development of connected cars with the first announced Cellular-V2X (C-V2X) trials in the U.S.

Testing is expected to take place in the San Diego Regional Proving Ground with the support of the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), Caltrans, the City of Chula Vista, and intelligent transportation solutions (ITS) provider McCain Inc.

The goal of the trials is to demonstrate the potential of C-V2X technologies, including support for improved automotive safety, automated driving, and traffic efficiency. The trials will also be aimed at demonstrating to automakers and road operators the anticipated cost-efficient benefits associated with embedded cellular technology in vehicles and synergies between the deployment of cellular base stations and roadside infrastructure. The initial testing phase is expected to begin later this year.
