Standardized APIs for Autonomous, Connected (V2X) and Cockpit Software

Different components of Autonomous Software are developed in an integrated environment both commercial and open-source software like AUTOWARE. However other key components of the Automotive environment, in particular, V2X and Cockpit software are developed in isolation. Hence, we have standardized the APIs that will help these components interact seamlessly. These Software APIs for Connected Cars, Cockpit, and Autonomous Software are becoming increasingly important in the automotive industry. These APIs provide a standardized interface for different software components, enabling faster development and deployment of new software functionalities. APIs also promote innovation and collaboration, driving growth and revenue in the automotive industry.
