Ford commits to deploy C-V2X technology on all new vehicles in the US beginning in 2022

Ford has announced their commitment to deploy cellular vehicle-to-everything technology — or C-V2X — in all their new vehicle models in the United States beginning in 2022. C-V2X will work with Ford Co-Pilot360™, their suite of driver-assist and safety features standard across North America on new passenger cars, SUVs and trucks, including F-150, going forward.

Don Butler, executive director of Ford Connected Vehicle Platform and Product, has announced their commitment to deploy cellular vehicle-to-everything technology — or C-V2X — in all their new vehicle models in the United States beginning in 2022.

Their move to deploy this technology builds on their prior commitment to equip every model we release in the United States with conventional cellular connectivity by the end of 2019. C-V2X will work with Ford Co-Pilot360™, their suite of driver-assist and safety features standard across North America on new passenger cars, SUVs and trucks, including F-150, going forward.

They claim C-V2X will enable vehicles to receive updates about potential traffic developments and risks that are beyond the range of what sensors can pick up, provide warnings or could even be tuned to activate Ford Co-Pilot360’s automatic emergency braking system to brake for drivers if they do not respond.

According to Butler, a conducive regulatory environment must be in place for C-V2X to be deployed, which is why they are working just as much with industry and government organizations to create such a technology-neutral environment. They claim this technology will only live up to its full potential if many vehicles on the road as well as roadside infrastructure take advantage of it. Ford is inviting other automakers, infrastructure and road operators, as well as government agencies to work with them to accelerate momentum for C-V2X.
