The Automotive Edge Computing Consortium (AECC) is an association of cross-industry, global leaders working to explore the rapidly evolving connected vehicle industry with significant data and communications needs involved in instrumenting billions of vehicles worldwide. The AECC’s goal is to develop an open, global technology framework designed to support the automotive ecosystem as all vehicles become connected. Technology agnostic, the AECC’s working groups will focus on the open-standards, solutions, and technologies needed to support the transfer of data and communications between the vehicle and local networks, near the source of the data, and then to a centralized cloud in a seamless, safe, reliable and optimized manner. The AECC’s members are key players in the automotive, high-speed mobile network, edge computing, wireless technology, distributed computing, and artificial intelligence markets.
