The Car Connectivity Consortium and ETSI sign cooperation agreement in which ETSI will formally explore adopting MirrorLink as an ETSI Technical Specification. Designed for maximum interoperability between a wide range of smartphones and cars, MirrorLink is an OS- and OEM-agnostic technology for car-smartphone connectivity.
The CCC (Car Connectivity Consortium) and ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) sign cooperation agreement with in which ETSI will formally explore adopting MirrorLink as an ETSI Technical Specification (TS). The CCC and ETSI reached the accord on 17 November 2015 at the 66th ETSI General Assembly meeting in Sophia Antipolis. Designed for maximum interoperability between a wide range of smartphones and cars, MirrorLink is an OS- and OEM-agnostic technology for car-smartphone connectivity.
The CCC is dedicated to cross-industry collaboration in developing MirrorLink global standards and solutions for smartphone and in-vehicle connectivity. The organization’s 100 members represent 70 percent of the world’s auto market, 70 percent of the global smartphone market and a who’s who of aftermarket consumer electronics vendors.
ETSI’s standards underlie many of the world’s most important and widely-used technologies, such as GSM, DECT, smart cards and electronic signatures – all of which have helped revolutionize modern life. In the field of transport/automotive and connected cars, ETSI has brought together all stakeholders from the car industry in its Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) technical committee. This group is leading the drive to achieve global standards for Cooperative ITS, which offers enormous potential through V2V (vehicle-to-vehicle) and V2R (vehicle-to-roadside) communication. Two specifications of ETSI’s ITS committee are now published as European standards.
