DAV’s Chief Technology Officer Invited to Join the Web Consortium’s Automotive Working Group

By Bradley Berman — Lead Editor

Billions of people around the world take the World Wide Web for granted; it is considered as much a necessity in modern life as running water and electricity. But the protocols that underpin the Web, the ones that enable the providers of content and services we desire and rely upon, didn’t just magically appear. Those protocols and the standards that govern the creation of those protocols were created and developed by an organization that was founded nearly 25 years ago, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The consortium is now developing new standards that will allow automobiles to access data generated from a vehicle’s computer and infotainment systems, and to reliably run web applications.
