Connected Autonomous Vehicles

The goal of the MPAI-CAV standard is to promote the development of a CAV industry by specifying components that can be easily integrated into larger subsystems. To achieve this goal, MPAI publishes a series of standards each adding more details to enhance CAV component interoperability.

Connected Autonomous Vehicles (MPAI-CAV) – Architecture partitions CAVs into subsystems and further partition those subsystems into components. Both subsystems and components are identified by their function and interfaces, i.e., data exchanged between subsystems and components.

The MPAI-CAV – Architecture Working Draft (html, pdf) is published with a request for Community Comments. See also the video recordings (YT, WimTV) and the slides of the presentation made on 06 September. Read An overview of Connected Autonomous Vehicle (MPAI-CAV) – Architecture.

Comments should be sent to the MPAI Secretariat by 2023/09/26T23:59 UTC. MPAI will use the Comments received to develop the final draft planned to be published at the 36th General Assembly (29 September 2023).

MPAI has previously published a Call for Technologies with a deadline of 15 August 2023 as below:
