Returning from a holiday break can be a daunting task.  With email boxes filled up and new deadlines looming, it is nice to be able to lock down a couple of important events BEFORE the holiday break, so they are in your calendars before you return.

GENIVI has three important events for you to consider adding to your schedules for the new year:

Connect2Car@CES Digital Summit

GENIVI has enjoyed a multi-year relationship with SAE and other organizations to plan and execute one of the best "on-site" Consumer Electronics Show (CES) programs for the automotive and mobility communities.  The Connect2Car track has consistently presented compelling content often filling the meeting room with interested attendees.  The registration site for the 14 January (10:00am - 2:00pm EST) event is at and the program can also be viewed from that page. 

With innovation as the theme for CES2021, the Connect2Car summit provides the ideal setting to explore what is next in connected mobility.  Presented in conjunction with leading advocacy organizations in the industry, including GENIVI, MEA and SEMA, Connect2Car@CES Digital Summit provides a complete perspective of the technology, infrastructure, consumer acceptance, and business forces and regulation impacting connected mobility.  Connect2Car@CES Digital Summit provides a convenient online and cost-effective opportunity to hear experts from across the connected mobility landscape, including experts from Ford, FCA, Audi, Wind River, Cloudera, Connected Travel, Butzel Long, NXP, Humanizing Autonomy, Alexa Automotive and more.

GENIVI is pleased to have several members represented on the program so you will want to secure your place for this important automotive event during CES 2021.  Registering before 3 January 2021 will save you $50 on the cost of the event.  Registration is $99 through 3 January after which it goes up to $149.

Connected Vehicle Interface Initiative (CVII) Workshop

Momentum that was started during the May and October virtual GENIVI events to launch a new vehicle data and cloud interface initiative in GENIVI continues into 2021 with a planned workshop the third week of February.  This workshop, co-led by W3C and GENIVI, will present work done to date to define specific technical activities advancing a standard vehicle data model, standard vehicle service catalog, standard web interface and methodology for remote function calls from the web.  This work continues to evolve past work completed by GENIVI on Vehicle Service Specification (VSS) and W3C on Vehicle Interface Service Specification (VISS) by adding vehicle services to the standards.

Several OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and data-focused companies have committed to this initiative and it is sure to be a "next big thing" in GENIVI.  As details of the workshop become available, we will post additional blogs in January.

More information on the CVII work can be found at the GENIVI Project Wiki site HERE.  To express interest in participating in the CVII project, please contact Gunnar Andersson, GENIVI Technical Lead.
