We see the work of the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium as pivotal to the success of C‑ITS deployment, both in Europe and further afield. Its working groups and technical committee are undertaking very important work to ensure that vehicle communications technologies will contribute to saving lives and reduce injury by making our roads safer.
The CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium (C2C‑CC) is a nonprofit, industry driven organization initiated by European vehicle manufacturers and supported by equipment suppliers, research organizations and other partners. The C2C‑CC is dedicated to the objective of further increasing road traffic safety and efficiency by means of cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C‑ITS)with Vehicle‑to‑Vehicle Communication (V2V) supported by Vehicle‑to‑Infrastructure Communication (V2I).

IoT M2M Council
The IMC is the largest and fastest‑growing trade organization in the IoT/M2M sector, with over 20,000 OEMs, enterprise users, and apps developers as members, and an average of 300 new members joining weekly. The IMC brings a new approach – it will increase deployments of IoT/M2M solutions by proving the business case of the technology to those that would adopt it. It will stand for connectivity as its own global industry, and will not see IoT/M2M technology through the narrow lens of technical standards or a single vertical industry.
