Plan to make it to MakeItDriveable Lisbon 2019!
In just three weeks on the MakeItDriveable City Tour 2019, we visited Porto, Lisbon, Barcelona, Madrid, Zurich, Paris and Amsterdam. We’re starting to feel like the Rolling Stones! And although we didn’t actually perform for millions, it certainly felt like it. All told, we met more than 100 startups at City Tour events and reviewed 35 pitches to the Ford team.

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).
