LG and Intel are working together to bring 5G technologies to the car.
5G telematics delivers data faster than 4G LTE, even reducing latency when cars are traveling at high speeds, allowing for greater vehicle to vehicle, vehicle to infrastructure, and vehicle to pedestrian communication.
LTE stands for long term evolution, which basically is a relatively new communications network that has the capacity to evolve and improve over time, 5G being the next stage.
The collaboration, unveiled at Mobile World Congress, will use LG’s connectivity leadership and Intel’s connected car, sensor fusion and deep learning expertise to develop and pilot on the next generation of wireless technology for a safer driving experience.
Meanwhile, Intel is also working with AT&T to test and define airborne LTE requirements for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones.
As part of the collaboration, they demonstrated a proof of concept showcasing an LTE-based real-time video stream from a UAV using the AT&T LTE network with Intel’s modem.
Connecting drones over the network will help address many challenges the category faces, including safety and security concerns, real-time communications, potential interference with manned aircraft, and supporting future capabilities (such as beyond line of sight), as they are approved by the FAA.
