5G will see C-V2X explosion … maybe
An automotive research body is predicting an explosion in C-V2X capability with the roll-out of 5G.
However, the statement announcing a study by ABI Research based on industry opinions, does make the sweeping assumption that 5G, which requires many times more aerials than the existing 4G networks, will have a far superior coverage. That’s somewhat difficult to imagine when most regular drivers will testify to huge holes in 4G coverage even in densely populated city areas.
Nonetheless, the organization says it expects cars will start to communicate with each other to increase overall road safety and traffic as soon as 2023. Its recent published data suggests a total of 41M 5G capable connected cars will already be on roads by 2030. It claims that number will rise to 83M vehicles by 2035 further suggesting 5G connected cars will make up more than 75% of the total C-V2X equipped cars.
