Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC)

The car connectivity consortium (CCC) is a global association of automobile manufacturers, suppliers, and technology companies that develop standards for car communication systems. It includes specifications for how cars should communicate with other devices, including smartphones and navigation systems. The CCC aims to make it easier for automakers to build in-car systems that communicate with other devices. This will help improve the user experience and let drivers access traffic updates, fuel prices, and parking availability without fumbling through their smartphones. It would also enable features such as car-to-car communication and remote vehicle diagnostics.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC)

If an SMB is developing car systems that need to communicate with each other, it can reference the CCC's specifications for device compatibility. For example, an automaker could use these standards when designing its telematics system to be compatible with another company's navigation device or mobile app.
