Watch Now! Connecting Cars: Realizing the Benefits of V2X (Part 2)

Today’s cars and trucks are routinely equipped with touchscreens, navigation, emergency warning systems and other features that are enabled by connectivity. But V2X - a particularly promising connected vehicle technology that allows vehicles to communicate in real time with each other, with roadway infrastructure, and with pedestrians to save lives and make transportation more efficient - has not yet been fully realized in the U.S.

In this Future Driven Forum, we’re joined again by leading government officials to examine the benefits of V2X, identify the remaining barriers, and explore ways to foster widespread deployment.

5G Mobility

As we become a more connected society, the concept of the “smart city” is becoming reality. In this episode, we look into all the ways 5G technology can help us create smarter vehicles and a safer transportation future with Ram Iyer, senior vice president of connectivity at HARMAN. This includes how the U.S. can successfully scale 5G technology, what a supportive regulatory environment for 5G looks like, and what we need to do to fully realize the benefits of 5G.

America’s automobile industry is one of the most powerful engines driving the U.S. economy.

The greater automobile industry extends well beyond the iconic names of auto companies familiar to us all. Auto manufacturing depends on thousands of companies supplying parts, components and materials, as well as a vast retail and vehicle maintenance network. The greater industry supports roughly 10 million American jobs – delivering not just vehicles, but billions in paychecks to workers.
