Ford launches a global challenge based on apps for a better mobility
Developers are invited to use Ford’s OpenXC program. It's a non-production, open-source, software and hardware platform using real-time vehicle data. 15 types of vehicle data are available, including those related to vehicle speed, engine speed, fuel-level, and things like whether or not the windshield wipers are on or if a door is open. The aim is to integrate this real-time vehicle information into apps that relate to sustainability and mobility issues, whether by incorporating the data into existing apps or creating new apps from scratch.
