Accelerating the future of connected vehicles
COVESA is an open, collaborative, and impactful technology alliance; accelerating the full potential of connected vehicles.
Working together, we are a force-multiplier, creating a more diverse, sustainable, and integrated mobility ecosystem.
The Connected Vehicle Systems Alliance (COVESA), is a global, member-driven alliance focused on the development of open standards and technologies that accelerate innovation for connected vehicle systems, resulting in a more diverse, sustainable, and integrated mobility ecosystem.
COVESA is the only alliance focused solely on developing open standards and technologies for connected vehicles, which now form a growing percentage of vehicles on the road. Leveraging vehicle data and vehicle-to-cloud connectivity has become a primary goal of automakers and their suppliers.
COVESA is well-positioned as an experienced collaborative community given its strong foundation of introducing the Vehicle Signal Specification (VSS) and having launched with W3C the Common Vehicle Interface Initiative in 2019. Members are encouraged to build on this foundation by introducing projects that deliver specifications, open source licensed software, and related materials that equip the industry with useful assets for commercial solution development.
COVESA welcomes new members to add to its strong, active base of current members working together to shape the future technologies of connected vehicles and the mobility ecosystem.
The growing vibrant ecosystem brings buyers and sellers together to accomplish business goals, supporting the adoption of alliance member-driven results. Member contributions also power the future of integrated shared systems that in turn, benefit and complement their own businesses and product priorities.
