LG Electronics is collaborating with Qualcomm Technologies Inc. for the development of 5G automotive platforms. Qualcomm announced that it aims to deploy “reliable, connected, intelligent and location-aware next-generation vehicles” with partners including LG, Continental AG and ZTE Corp.
LG has been keeping a friendly relationship with Qualcomm. In 2004, it joined hands with Qualcomm to develop telematics technology, and in 2017, the two sides signed a partnership to collaborate on connected car solutions.
In 2019, the two companies agreed to strengthen the ecosystem of LG’s in-vehicle infotainment system, webOS Auto. LG has been trying to beef up its presence in the automotive solutions market in recent years.
