Building apps for the connected car is one of the many changing ways that people are interacting with cars. In February 2015, I spoke at Data Driven: Coding and Writing Transportation’s Future at Stanford University about the current landscape of connected car APIs. The conference was organized by Stanford_Journalism, REVS, and CARS.
My presentation covered the basics of how connectivity into the car works, the data available from car APIs, and what I’d like to see in the future of connected car app development.
I shared the stage with James Buczkowski (Director, Electrical and Electronics Systems, Research and Advanced Engineering at Ford Motor Company), Aaron Kessler (Investigative reporter, data journalist at New York Times) and Paul Ingrassia (Managing editor and automotive author at Reuters), who led us in a panel discussion about the benefits and implications of car data.
My presentation starts at 35:06 but the entire video is worth watching.
