CE4A is organised in four expert groups (EG), each involved in different areas of expertise.
Common activities are regularly coordinated and directed on management level in steering committees.
One task of CE4A is to publish automotive specifications for the interfaces between mobile devices and automotive ECUs.
The main objective is the standardisation of those interfaces allowing the integration of new technologies into cars.
The members of CE4A apply existing standards of the consumer electronics industry to the automotive industry adapting and matching interface specifications.
Furthermore, CE4A presents a common reference platform to standardise implementations on both sides, vehicle and consumer electronics.
