8 developers win big at Ford’s AppLink Mobility Challenge in Berlin.
Apps that enable drivers to rent out their cars when parked at airports, avoid parking fines, and even get fuel delivered are taking a giant step closer to reality after winning the 24-hour AppLink coding challenge.
AppLink is a suite of APIs that provide the ability for mobile developers to extend the command and control of a mobile application to the in-vehicle Human Machine Interface (HMI).

SmartDeviceLink (SDL) is an open-source POSIX-compliant technology platform on which the Ford AppLink product is built and allows it to communicate between applications running on a mobile device and our SYNC in-vehicle software.
OpenXC is a non-production open source interface, designed to attract top developers to experiment with DIY projects in Ford vehicles (with or without SYNC).
