What is C-V2X/5GAA Technology?

Cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) 5GAA technology will allow vehicles to communicate with other vehicles, and other devices/networks around them. This should provide a much higher level of awareness for the driver and greatly increase road safety.

Lyft  cars and Aptiv’s autonomous driving platform was let loose on the Vegas Strip! The result was an 4.99 out of 5 stars on more than 400 rides! But this technology is dependent on the 5G bands future growth and governments approval.

Who Is Developing this Transportation of the Future?

Many global international companies from the Automotive, Technology, and Telecommunications industries. Names like Qualcomm, Erricson, Aptiv, Nissan,  Continental  and others are collaborating to push this into mass reality!

What Will Be the Results of C-V2X?

 CDMA  (code-division multiple access) has been around since 1996 with Onstar a subsidiary of General Motors. As the internet network evolved also came GPS and turn by turn in our cars.

Fast forward to now with C-V2X  and vehicles will be able to communicate with everything around them like people (V2P), vehicles (V2V), infrastructure (V2I), and other networks(V2N). 

The C-VX2 technology is perfecting now and pretty much waiting for the 5GAA network to come online. Then we will see a whole IOT Internet Of Things connecting and communicating with each other!

C-V2x What Now!

Global companies are still pushing forward with group collaboration, testing and collecting data. Kroger Grocery and Nuro has started making fully autonomous grocery deliveries Scottsdale, Arizona.

The future looks very good for this technology to reach mass adoption in a quick time frame, what are your thoughts? If governments demand the safer technology in cars – will our insurance costs go down?


The talk going around is that 2019 will be the boom of the self driving car, and from 2020 on the technology will be normalized. Meanwhile governments are debating the best way to move  forward with safer driving. When do you think we will see this technology in everyday adoption?
