Car maker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is extending its collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies to bring 5G capabilities to select next-generation Range Rover, Defender, Discovery and Jaguar vehicles.

JLR and Qualcomm have worked together for the last five years on integrated digital cockpit and infotainment systems for JLR’s new vehicles and is now adding the Snapdragon Auto 5G Modem-RF for V2X links.

This will be used for low latency V2X links, connecting with nearby vehicles, generating real-time data that can inform new connected-car services and providing higher levels of autonomy.

The Snapdragon Auto 5G Modem-RF is a key component of the Snapdragon Digital  Chassis technology suite, and JLR vehicles with 5G connectivity based on this can be expected on the road in 2025. That means the integration is pretty much complete as the vehicles will need to be tested through next year.

 “JLR have partnered with Qualcomm Technologies for more than five years and our latest collaboration continues to strengthen our relationship,” said David Nesbitt, Director of Digital Product Platform at JLR. “As cars become increasingly intelligent, using 5G capability and developing innovative technology solutions will put us at the forefront of delivering the best services for a fully connected, modern luxury experience for our clients.”

 “Through our technology collaboration with JLR, we’re leveraging Qualcomm Technologies’ long-established expertise in 5G and wireless innovation to further digitally transform future vehicles,” said Jeff Arnold, vice president, product management at Qualcomm Technologies. “Next-generation telematics systems and 5G connectivity capabilities are helping deliver unparalleled connected and intelligent in-vehicle experiences to drivers and passengers.”;
