The 5G Automotive Association (5GAA) is an international, global, cross-industry organization of companies from the automotive, technology, and telecommunications industries. Its goal is, to develop end-to-end solutions[buzzword] for future mobility and transportation services, so avoiding incompatibility problems from the beginning.


The 5G Automotive Association was created in September 2016, by Audi AG, BMW Group, Daimler AG from the side of car makers, Samsung, Ericsson, Huawei, Intel, Nokia, as producers of telecommunications equipment and Harman, Qualcomm as a firmware manufacturer [1] .[2] In 2017 the 5G Automotive Association signed a letter of intent with the European Automotive Telecom Alliance (EATA) for cooperation.[3][4][5][6][7]


The 5GAA is a registered voluntary association.[8] It has a hierarchical structure. There are twelve top (platinum) members (including the founders), prime (gold) members, having the right to propose members for leading positions and general members.[9][10]

In 2018, the 5G Automotive Association has more than eighty member companies.


The 5G Automotive Association works for the standardization needed for the implementation of driverless, autonomous driving in cooperation with standards organizations such as ETSI, 3GPP and SAE.[11]

A second task is the information of the public on the emerging technology[12] by demonstrating feasibility and holding conferences on the topic.[13][14]
