App Pursuit Challenge: and the Winner is…The App Pursuit Challenge Winner is FuelSignal. CONGRATULATIONS!!!
The judges felt that the FuelSignal app really captured the spirit of the Connected Car-Connected City App Pursuit. The team combined Ford vehicle data with city of LA data to provide a simple and compelling set of features that would definitely appeal to drivers.
After a grueling hackathon and working sessions at the CTIA Super Mobility Week in September, Fuel Signal beat other finalists to become the winner. The other finalists included:
- Live Drive
- Concur Trace
FuelSignal users can sign up to receive discounted gas prices and earn loyalty credits for use at gas stations. Whenever a user’s mobile device is paired with SYNC, FuelSignal monitors the fuel level through AppLink APIs. When the fuel level drops low the application will alert the driver and enable them to find the nearest gas station with a discounted price. FuelSignal provides additional convenience for drivers by allowing them to pay for their fuel purchase using a mobile wallet at the pump via AppLink. Every purchase completed through the app earns loyalty credits that can be used inside the location or even applied as further discount for fuel purchases.
