Volkswagen Group has become the latest car manufacturer to join Avanci’s 5G patent licensing programme, it was announced today, February 20.

According to Avanci, all car, bus and truck manufacturing brands in the VW Group are now licensees in the 5G programme.

Brands in the group, which include Volkswagen, Audi, Bentley, Lamborghini, Porsche, Seat, and Škoda, are now licensed to the 5G, 4G, 3G and 2G standard-essential patents belonging to more than 60 patent owners in the programme.

Laurie Fitzgerald, president at Avanci Vehicle and who was featured in Managing IP’s Top 50 Most Influential People in IP list in 2023, said: “We are delighted that Volkswagen Group is taking part in our licensing programme for its next generation of connected vehicles.
