Next Meeting: 16 December 2022

Next Milestone:  Draft Legal and Technical Charters Completed, 16 December 2022


As part of their recently announced collaboration COVESA and AUTOSAR are leveraging their respective strengths to collaboratively create an open Vehicle API.  This Vehicle API will expose vehicle data as defined and described by COVESA's Vehicle Signal Specification to a  variety of agreed upon touch-points in and out of the vehicle (see Touchpoints below).    The plan is to provide access to this vehicle data through an extensible plugin architecture that will support a variety of well known protocols and an open license model
(see Extensible Plugin Architecture below).

Vehicle API Legal

The Vehicle API Legal team will address Intellectual Property Rights and licensing.  

Working draft charter - Currently access is limited to the COVESA and AUTOSAR members who require access.  If you feel you need access, please contact Paul Boyes .

Vehicle API Technical

The Vehicle API Technical team will define the Vehicle API.

Working draft charter - Currently access is limited to the COVESA and AUTOSAR members who require access.  If you feel you need access, please contact Paul Boyes .
