Since the rebranding in October 2021, we have received an overwhelming positive response, including 15 new members, to our expanded scope into connected vehicle systems.  COVESA is gaining tremendous traction as a leading and influencing voice to the industry for open collaboration, open standards and open source software solutions. Openness is essential to realizing the full potential of connected vehicles.  Working together, we are a force-multiplier, creating a more diverse, sustainable and integrated mobility ecosystem.

Please read on to learn more about the significant inroads we have made over Q1.
