New open standards for vehicle connectivity to be co-developed by GENIVI Alliance, Open Connectivity Foundation

The GENIVI Alliance and the Open Connectivity Foundation (OCF) have announced a liaison agreement under which the two organizations will co-develop open standards for vehicle connectivity and vehicle data exchange, including a unified model for secure discovery and exchange of information between smart homes, connected cars, and other IoT devices. The joint effort will attempt to address end-to-end security challenges and with the aim of becoming the basis for a growing number of vehicle-to-everything (V2X) solutions. GENIVI and OCF will also closely collaborate with the W3C Automotive Working Group to expose vehicle data to web application developers.

OCF believes in technology partnerships that will help drive our vision of ensuring secure interoperability for consumers and business, across multiple industry verticals,” said Joonho Park, executive director of OCF. “We’ve had a productive, year-long collaboration with GENIVI, resulting in open source contributions to key IoT projects and technology demonstrations at CES 2017 that were received extremely well by attendees.”
