TechShop Pittsburgh will be hosting a Ford OpenXC workshop this weekend. Ford has developed the OpenXC platform to allow developers and hackers to build an app that harnesses data from your car.
OpenXC is a combination of open source hardware and software that lets you extend your vehicle with custom applications and pluggable modules. It uses standard, well-known tools to open up a wealth of data from the vehicle to developers.
The Ford Team will be in Pittsburgh this Friday and Saturday (September 13 and 14, 2013) for a weekend workshop. The cost is
$35 $15 and includes dinner, lunch, snacks and the OpenXC kit.
