Seoul, Korea-based LG Electronics, www.LG.com, and Santa Clara, Calif.-based Intel, www.intel.com, are working together to bring 5G (fifth generation) technologies to the car.

The companies say 5G telematics delivers data faster than 4G LTE (long-term evolution), even reducing latency when cars are traveling at high speeds, allowing for greater vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure, and vehicle-to-pedestrian communication.

Software can be updated at high speeds through OTA (over-the-air) networks, while videos and other multimedia content can experience faster downloads through the car’s infotainment systems.

The collaboration, unveiled at Mobile World Congress, www.mobileworldcongress.com, 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.

LG is a supplier of vehicle telematics for GM’s, www.gm.com, 4G LTE OnStar telematics system, which has helped position the technology company.

Will connected cars soon see even faster speeds? This partnership between LG and Intel can provide some insight into what is to come in the future.
