Is current 5G tech the answer to seamless vehicle connectivity?

Partner research reveals the result of a joined PoC

Why is seamless connectivity important? What does it mean for the future of driving? And is 5G tech capable of meeting the automotive industry’s needs, especially with the potential disruptions that could arise as vehicles contend with Europe’s crowded network?

For the answers, join our panel of network providers, mapmakers and a carmaker as they discuss the challenges surrounding seamless connectivity revealed through Toyota, TomTom, T-Systems and Lyfo’s joint research venture. The webinar will also share results of TomTom’s proof of concept (PoC), which maps out an ideal future of ubiquitous, uninterrupted services and rapid, reliable connectivity.
