W3C invites automotive manufacturers and service providers, wireless carriers, media service providers and advertisers, insurance companies, application and solution developers and others to participate in the W3C workshop on Web and Automotive, 14-15 Nov. 2012, Rome, Italy.

People today enjoy applications and services from multiple networked devices: notebook and desktop computers, smart phones, tablets, and Internet TVs. With our increasingly mobile lifestyles, it’s time to include the connected car in this mix. The Web is the ideal platform to offer a rich range of benefits and value-added services to drivers and passengers.

W3C’s Open Web Platform (OWP) is driving this and other industry transformations. The promise of the early information superhighway is being fulfilled. Whether tethering a driver’s smartphone or tablet to work with a car--or embedding technology into the car itself--there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. The Web can take you there.

Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to share their own perspectives, requirements, and ideas to ensure that emerging global technology standards meet the needs of the Web and Automotive industries.

We want to know more about your state-of-the-art approaches!

  •  Share your knowledge of the topics or other areas of interest to you.
  •  Offer your experiences in using Web-based automotive approaches.
  •  Demonstrate prototypes of emerging technologies that could benefit from global Web standards.
  •  Show research results or lessons learned to ensure others don’t reinvent the wheel.

 Top five topics for the workshop :            

  • Putting safety first
  • Relationship between the car and the mobile phone
  • Creating markets for automotive applications
  • Improving quality and reducing costs through Web technologies
