Capitol Steps Future Connections
CEA's Mobile Electronics Division has prioritized this initiative, and in cooperation with CEA's R6 Engineering Committee, is actively working with SAE to understand both sides of this issue. Currently the focus is to create awareness to the mutual benefits and define active steps that will lead to the agreement to proceed with the development of specifications for a standardized gateway that can be applied to any vehicle bus system.
Communication, cooperation and coordination are the key factors to success in bringing two industries together to ensure that we keep the consumer interested and eager to buy both new vehicles and the latest aftermarket mobile electronics.
