The OVERSEE project develops an open, standardized in-vehicle software and communication platform, which will empower (almost) everyone to develop vehicular applications and offering these applications to all vehicles that are equipped - very similar to Apple's App Store.

The OVERSEE platform will in particular ensure that such applications cannot harm each other or any other vehicle-internal IT system. This protection mechanism applies regardless whether the interference is caused by an application or user failure or a malicious manipulation caused by a hacker or computer virus.

Another task of the OVERSEE platform is providing internal and external vehi­cular communication interfaces to auto­motive applications.
