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.
You can get all of the details for the event here on the TechShop Pittsburgh blog and you can register for the event here. Space is limited so don’t wait to sign up.
