Call for Participation in Automotive and Web Platform Business Group

W3C has launched the Automotive and Web Platform Business Group

The mission of the Automotive and Web Platform Business Group is to influence the Open Web Platform on the unique needs of the automotive industry, and to help stakeholders within the automotive industry to build a good and practical understanding on the standardization processes within the W3C. The initial scope of this business group will be to determine what vehicle data should be exposed through a Web API(s). The goal or deliverable will be to draft a specification and then hand it off to a W3C working group that can take the spec and finalize it through the W3C specification and community process. If the business group is successful in this initial effort, there are many other technical challenges such as reducing driver distraction and improving safety that this group could address while influencing the Open Web Platform for Automotive.

The proposed charter for the group is available at:
