We are asking for responses and feedback from the industry at-large relative to the work the committee(s) has done to date, and to emphasize the importance of continued work in this area.
The first objective will be to develop a single focus of the committee’s scope, objectives and goals. It is evident that a framework has already begun that can drive future progress and success will be dependent upon an expanded active participation.
Emerging technology with the electric vehicle and battery is progressing at a faster pace and it has been recommended by existing CIECA Committees and the CIECA Board to be proactive and start looking at the impact this will have on the electronic messaging and standards.
CIECA’s Emerging Technology Ad-hoc Committee’s goal is to identify, prioritize, develop and maintain messaging, data sharing standards and codes to help all segments of the collision industry get access to and share data that enables commerce, communication and connectivity between segments. The committee’s responsibilities will include, but not be limited to, identifying new data sources, new data access and sharing requirements, new connectivity methodologies, new workflows, new terminology, and new data requirements to help drive the adoption and implementation of these new technologies into all collision industry segments.
