On the heels of our exhilarating Boing Boing Ingenuity: Data Driven hack day, our partners at Ford are hosting another hackathon at TechShop Menlo Park on September 6-8! Want to hack on their OpenXC platform, an open source hardware/software platform to get access to vehicle data? Sign up here! TJ Giluli, the Ford Silicon Valley Lab research team leader, says:
The OpenXC APIs used for the Data Driven hackathon were read-only, and many expressed interest in being able to write back to the car and affect its behavior. On September 6-8 Ford is sponsoring a hackathon at TechShop Menlo Park in which participants will have access to three plug-in hybrid electric vehicles which will be modified to export a much richer signal set, and also support APIs allowing you to control select functionality of the car. Participants will code OpenXC apps that will be able to read much more electric vehicle specific data and will be able to control select aspects of the vehicles' powertrains. For more information and to sign up for the hackathon, please go here.
