USA: The Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) has announced the MirrorLink 1.0 device specification is made available to the public for download. The milestone underscores the CCC’s commitment to open standards in the connected car ecosystem and is expected to quicken the pace of global MirrorLink deployments in cars, smartphones and aftermarket automotive electronics.
Public availability of MirrorLink offers numerous benefits. Potential members will have a chance to freely evaluate the standard before joining the CCC. A wider swath of the connected car ecosystem will be able to understand and provide feedback on the technology. And in general, the CCC can ensure fewer technological misunderstandings as the standard develops.
Mika Rytkonen, Chairman And President of the CCC, said: “Opening MirrorLink 1.0 is a momentous event for the CCC and represents two years of intense collaboration between our esteemed member companies. We are excited to see all of the heightened innovation this inspires among new and existing MirrorLink supporters – as it will ensure sound and functional evolution for the next versions of the standard. This also brings the CCC one step closer to its mission of increasing safety and enjoyment on today’s roads.”
