Ford reinforces its commitment to C-V2X, plans demos at CES with Qualcomm - FierceWireless

Ford announced its commitment to deploy cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology in all of its new vehicle models in the U.S. beginning in 2022.

  Ahead of the first official day of CES 2019, Ford announced in a blog post its commitment to deploy cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) technology in all of its new vehicle models in the U.S. beginning in 2022.

  Ford is among a handful of companies demonstrating C-V2X at CES 2019 this week using Qualcomm’s technology, namely the Qualcomm 9150 C-V2X chipset.

  Audi and Ford vehicles, as well as Ducati Multistrada 1260 motorcycles, are being used to demonstrate a cooperative intersection use case, exhibiting how C-V2X can be used between vehicles to negotiate the right of way in entering a 4-way, non-signalized intersection.

  The companies also are exhibiting additional Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V), Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) safety scenarios to demonstrate the maturity and potential of C-V2X technology.

  According to a press release, this week’s Las Vegas demonstrations follow the successful showings of C-V2X trial validations and interoperability conducted throughout 2018 in Europe, Japan, Australia, China and the United States, as well as the first live C-V2X interoperability demonstration between a motorcycle, vehicles and roadside infrastructure, which was hosted by several leading automotive and technology companies, including Ducati and Qualcomm Technologies.
