“For more than a decade, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been at work on a set of coding standards intended to enable a single piece of code – be it for an app or a website – to display across a broad range of connected devices. And the automotive industry has been paying close attention, hoping this new set of standards, known as HTML5, would increase the number of apps available for the connected vehicle, or, at the very least, bring down development costs.

By the look of it, the W3C, which acts as the main international standards organization for the World Wide Web, is getting close. In December 2012, it published the complete definition of HTML5 specifications – an actual set of standards is expected before the end of this year. And the connected car industry is now part of the official process. The W3C’s Automotive and Web Platform Business Group launched in February 2013, and the first draft of an HTML5 automotive standard is expected in April.”
