Do you love cars and miss the days when you could easily tinker with them on the weekends?
Are you a software or hardware hacker who wants to interface more easily with your vehicle?

Ford’s OpenXC platform is the first open source automotive platform that allows you to develop apps for your automobile. More precisely, OpenXC connects to your car through the OBD-II data port, and with a system of open source hardware and software, it draws and descrambles rich sensor data from your car’s digital core. For the very first time, you can pull data out of the awesome array of sensors and computers built into your vehicle!
Ford will be holding a developer workshop starting the evening of Friday, August 2, and running all day Saturday, August 3, 2013. We will cover software development using Android and OpenXC, plus we'll build up an OpenXC hardware project (all materials included).
