New Efforts Aimed at Connected Car Standards

The GENIVI Alliance and Open Connectivity Foundation have announced they will collaborate on a standardized approach that would allow the connected car to interact with new smart technologies in homes and neighborhoods globally.  The GENIVI Alliance develops open source software and standards for the connected car, while the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) is a leading Internet of Things (IoT) standards body. Additionally, the collaboration will extend to the W3C Automotive Working Group, a developer of an Open Web Platform API specification for in-vehicle connectivity and data access protocols.
