This Challenge will bring in developers on the leading edge of automotive and connected car applications to work with OEM and Tier 1 engineers and demo their expertise. This will be a select group of pre-screened developers working professionally in the field creating high-quality apps and services.

Autotech Council members will kick-off the Challenge with a member meeting about the developer tools that are currently available and the industry's unmet needs; the "make" then takes place all day Friday and Saturday (October 10/11) and finishes with judging, awards, and prizes.

We'll start the meeting by getting your input on the type of apps you would like to see developers create in these areas:

  • Apps that utilize Projection (displaying app content and interactivity on in-car screens)
  • Diagnostic apps and services, which can utilize data from the standard OBDii port or another source
  • Enterprise/fleet apps that add value to the B2B market
  • Home-car connectivity apps and services that link electronics in the car with a user’s home, or other outside services (such as personal calendars, email, entertainment, etc.)
  • Internet of Things-based apps and services

While many of the developers have existing apps or services, they will also want to hear directly from you about the most important areas for your company to guide their work.

This meeting is for members only, free to attend, and closed to the public and media. Select media may be invited to the judging segment on Saturday October 11.
