Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"The first test of Ford's open-application SDK will be in
conjunction with a competition at the University of Michigan at Ann
Arbor. Students will compete to develop the best Sync application
that makes use of the cloud. The winning team will have their app
installed in Ford's first test mule, a Ford Fiesta, and will take a
road trip from Ann Arbor to San Francisco to participate in the
2010 San Mateo Maker's Faire.
"Ford currently has no road map for when we can expect to see
the Sync open platform in production vehicles, as it is still in
the prealpha testing phases."
