These monetary gains will be added over and above the benefits, the society at large will experience due to the introduction of 5G enabled vehicles. These connected vehicles will reduce collisions, traffic congestion and emissions as well. These would help in saving billions of dollars globally, as the research findings claim.

The study also claims that the 5G connectivity in modern cars will directly assist and support the development of Advanced Driver-Assist Systems (ADAS) that are capable of helping vehicles to avoid collisions while facilitating self-driving vehicle operation. The study forecasts that 5G enabled connected cars will grab an increasing share of unit volume with an even faster penetration of sales revenue. This will eventually influence the economics of leasing and the market value of both new and used vehicles.

The connectivity in cars till now comes as an optional value proposition for the consumers. However, wider 5G connectivity penetration in the automotive world will change that perception, claims the study.
