An organization driving global technologies for smartphone-centric car connectivity solutions.

About CCC

The Car Connectivity Consortium® (CCC) is a cross-industry organization advancing global technologies for smartphone-to-car connectivity solutions. CCC is developing Digital Key, an exciting new open standard to allow smart devices, like smartphones to act as a vehicle key. Digital Key will let drivers lock and unlock their cars, and even let them start the engine and share access to friends or valets, using their phones. Another project, Car Data, will create an ecosystem to link the ever-expanding set of vehicle data to authorized data usage, such as pay-how-you-drive insurance, road monitoring, and fleet management. CCC previously developed and launched MirrorLink®, an open standard for connecting apps between the smartphone and the car. MirrorLink® is currently used in millions of cars and smartphones. CCC includes a large number of stakeholders, including Car OEMs, Tier-I suppliers, Phone Manufacturers, and App Developers.
