An international automotive component lifecycles company called Angular Components is building an API for automakers to build their own automotive software that is modular and can be easily shared across teams.
The API will allow automakers to create the software for autonomous vehicles, which could eventually lead to a more user-friendly and reliable vehicle that can be shared with other teams.
The company says it’s building the API in an open-source manner, and that it has already had several companies sign on to help build the API.
