June 3, 2020—Urgent Communications, an arm of the International Wireless Communications Expo, shared an article that outlines some of the potential capability of 5G-connected vehicles.

The article cites a report that shows how cars will become devices themselves, allowing for lots of user software options and for the vehicle to optimize its own energy use.
