Technology is evolving at lighting speeds. As the landscape of the aftermarket continues to grow and evolve to include more technologies in vehicle’s, equipment, and parts, the auto care industry needs products and services to help support those technologies and keep the aftermarket moving.

A coast-to-coast network of 500,000 independent manufacturers, distributors, retailers, e-commerce, and repair shops demand technology that moves as fast as business does. The Auto Care Association develops and maintains data standards, best practices and data research tools to help keep the vehicle and equipment aftermarket industry supply chains running smoothly and their customers satisfied.

Additionally, vehicle and transportation technologies are evolving in leaps and bounds and it is imperative that the vehicle aftermarket is informed of the challenges they will face in the future. The Auto Care Association is working to identify these challenges and turn them into opportunities for the aftermarket as well as working to ensure that the aftermarket is included in the evolving transportation ecosystem and that there is a level playing field for all. Learn below about vehicle technology progression, what the latest technological developments mean and what we're doing about it today, including: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS); Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs); V2X; Automotive Embedded Systems and the Secure Vehicle Interface (SVI)
