Who is the Car Connectivity Consortium?
The CCC is dedicated to cross-industry collaboration in developing global standards and solutions for smartphone and in-vehicle connectivity. The organization’s 75 plus members represent more than 70 percent of the world’s auto market, more than 60 percent of the global smartphone market and a who’s who of aftermarket consumer electronics vendors. Besides MirrorLink®, the CCC portfolio of technologies includes Digital Key and Car Data.
Our Mission and Vision
When it comes to cars and smartphones, the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) makes it possible to simply connect and ride. No matter the device or vehicle, the CCC wants connectivity to be easy and safety-conscious.
The CCC makes this possible via MirrorLink™, a standard for controlling handsets from the dashboard or steering wheel. Across certified cars and smartphones, consumers can access certified apps and other content from a familiar, ‘projected’ interface.
The CCC has also started work on two newer projects, Digital Key and Car Data. Digital Key will enable consumers to conveniently lock/unlock their vehicle and start their engine using their smart devices. Advanced key provisioning and sharing will also be supported. And Car Data will connect consumers to service providers who will offer tailored vehicular services enhanced by vehicle data.
The CCC rigorously evaluates devices, cars and apps before granting certification. Users get a fun, compliant and hassle-free experience in return.
