Apps Alliance at the Connected Car Expo

Automotive development is more opportunistic than ever before, and the Apps Alliance is at the forefront of the topic bringing the latest and greatest insights to developers.  We visited the Connected Car Expo in Los Angeles, California on November 19, to uncover the hottest trends in auto innovation, explore consumer expectations, and discuss resources and tools for developers to succeed in this space.

In light of our recent whitepaper, Internet of Things: Automotive as a Microcosm of IoT, we convened industry leaders to analyze the intersection of IoT and the automotive industry. View our videos below to get up to speed on current innovations and future opportunities in connected cars. While at the Connected Car Expo, we also caught up with finalists from the Connected City App Pursuit challenge. You can see each of their three minute demo videos here.


Driving Innovation: 
Where We're at and Where We're Headed

We convened industry leaders to explore today’s complex vehicle systems and innovative technologies. What are the hottest trends in auto innovation today? Where is the industry headed? How can auto innovators capitalize on the opportunities? 

Automotive IoT: 
What Developers Need to Know

Industry experts estimate that every car will be connected in some way by 2025, and the market for connected vehicle technology will reach $54 billion by 2017. Listen to industry experts discuss how the connected car is transforming the industry and what this means for developers.



A big thanks to our host partner, Ford Developer Program, for working with us to film live content from their booth. You guys rock!
