Connected Car Hackathon Coming To NAB


jacapps is teaming up with Ford at the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas for an event called the Connected Car Hackathon. Coders and developers will compete to develop dashboard solutions that will enable audio and video content for in-vehicle consumption in today’s vehicles, and in autonomous vehicles in the future.

Scott Burnell, Global Lead, Business Development and Partner Management of the Ford Developer Program, will not only be the keynote speaker at the Radio Luncheon, but has organized the Hackathon. “The question I hear a lot from broadcasters is, ‘How do we compete in today’s digital dashboard?’ and ‘Won’t autonomous vehicles bring all sorts of new challenges?’ This Hackathon is a great way to kickstart not only the thought process toward keeping content in the car, but to get technical teams actually working on it.”
