October Member Meeting

The Autotech Developer Challenge gives developers the ability to show off their innovative work, and provide our members the opportunity to engage with them and work together as potential partners and customers. The October member meeting was conducted at the Autotech Developer Challenge and included a discussion exploring app and service possibilities in the automotive space, demos and coding presentations, and networking with the developers and supporting OEMs. We started the meeting by getting input on the type of apps the audeince 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 The App and Service Possibilities for Auto Industry Panel included representatives from Volkswagen, Renault, Toyota, and Honda.
