Ford announced that it is committing to deploy cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology in all of its new vehicle models in the U.S. beginning in 2022.
C-V2X is a wireless communication technology that can “talk” to and “listen” for similarly equipped vehicles, people, and traffic management infrastructure such as traffic lights to relay important information and help make city mobility safer and less congested. Planned alongside the growing 5G cellular network, C-V2X enables direct communication between the connected devices. Because a signal does not need to travel to a cellular tower first, vehicles can quickly send and receive information. Ultimately, it lets drivers know what is ahead of them before they encounter it.
