Honda and Verizon have teamed up to research use of 5G in connected vehicle to enhance safety. The duo have partnered with the University of Michigan's Mcity, which is a test bed for connected and autonomous vehicles.

Verizon says its 5G and mobile edge computing (MEC) platforms could offer massive bandwidth and low latency.

It can also improve communications and connectivity between drivers, other cars, sensors and cameras installed in streets, traffic lights, pedestrians and emergency vehicles.
