Cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) will serve as the foundation for vehicles to communicate with each other and everything around them—providing 360º non-line-of-sight awareness and a higher level of predictability for enhanced road safety and autonomous driving.
With our technology leadership, rich 5G roadmap, and proven AI capabilities, we are shaping a new era of smart transportation for a cleaner environment and sustainable future.
Wired Brand Lab spoke with the experts at Qualcomm Technologies, the world’s leading wireless technology innovator, about the future of mobility.
As part of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 14, C-V2X defines two transmission modes that, together, enable a broad range of use cases. Direct C-V2X, which includes vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I), and vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P), provides enhanced communication range and reliability in dedicated ITS 5.9 GHz spectrum that’s independent of a cellular network, as well as network communications (V2N) in traditional mobile broadband licensed spectrum.
When compared with 802.11p-based technologies, Direct C-V2X provides increased communication range (~2X), better non-line-of-sight (NLOS) performance, enhanced reliability, and cost efficiency without relying on cellular network assistance or coverage for enhanced safety services.
Momentum of C-V2X technologies continues to build with an unprecedented level of collaboration between the automotive and telecom industries.
C-V2X standards development was completed in March 2017, as was reusing established service and app layers as defined by automotive and standards communities like ETSI and SAE.

The evolution to 5G NR-based C-V2X will augment Rel-14 with new and complementary capabilities for autonomous driving, all while maintaining backward compatibility. Designed to support direct communications, it will incorporate 5G NR features, such as high throughput, lower latency and ultra-reliable communication capabilities to enable advanced use cases for autonomous vehicles.
Sharing of high throughput sensor data using real-world models.
Providing intention and trajectory sharing for faster, yet safe maneuvers.
Sharing of local data such as 3D HD maps in real time.
Exchanging intention and sensor data for coordinated driving.
Our leading technology is already enabling the connected car experience today. And, we are at the forefront of pioneering technologies from vehicle communications to precise positioning and embedded deep learning for the always-connected, more autonomous vehicle of the future.
