LG and Intel announced that they are collaborating to develop and pilot 5G-based telematics technology, the next generation of wireless technology for cars.

5G telematics delivers data more than 33 times faster than 4G LTE, with latency expected to drop to about one tenth of current speeds.

Software can be updated at high speeds through over-the-air networks, while multimedia content will see faster downloads through cars’ infotainment systems.

Powered by V2X (Vehicle to Everything) technology, 5G’s reduced latency is possible even when cars are travelling at high speeds.

Communication from vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to infrastructure, or vehicle to pedestrian through 5G can also help prevent accidents for a safer driving experience, the companies said.
