5G Automotive Association created by car makers, telecom players

5G Automotive Association founders include Ericsson, Nokia, Huawei, Qualcomm, Intel

German car makers Audi, BMW Group and Daimler have partnered with telecom vendors Ericsson, Nokia, Huawei and chipmakers Qualcomm and Intel to form the 5G Automotive Association, an association to promote connected vehicle technologies.

This new entity, dubbed “5G Automotive Association”, will develop, test and promote communications solutions, support standardization and accelerate commercial availability and global market penetration.

The main activities of the association include defining and harmonizing use cases, technical requirements and implementation strategies; supporting standardization and regulatory bodies, certification and approval processes; addressing vehicle-to-everything technology requirements, such as wireless connectivity, security, privacy, authentication, distributed cloud architectures and more, as well as running joint innovation and development projects leading to integrated solutions, interoperability testing, large scale pilots and trial deployments.

The 5G Automotive Association said it is open to receive more partners who are engaged in the automotive industry, the ICT industry or the broader eco-system and value chain for vehicle and road transportation systems. The association will support and work in close cooperation with national and regional initiatives, such as the European Connected & Automated Driving Pre-Deployment Project.

“Connected cars will shape the future of individual mobility, and next generation mobile networks will take car to x connectivity to a new level. The key to success is in cross-industry collaboration. This is why we set up the 5G Automotive Association where experts from all relevant fields are teaming up,” Audi’s Head of Infotainment Development, Alfons Pfaller, said.

“The success of 5G is dependent on cross-industry work in new eco systems to digitalize industries. With the creation of this Association we will leverage our latest technology, 5G, and work closely together with the car industry to jointly develop solutions as well as provide input to regulation, certification and standardization,” Ericsson’s CTO Ulf Ewaldsson, said.
