Porsche Cars North America hosts Porsche Data Cup for new customer experiences
Porsche invites developers to create new applications from connected car data
Porsche Cars North America has announced its first ever Porsche Data Cup competition where contestants have the opportunity to develop business models for smart home, financial and e-mobility applications.
To do so, the company says, they will have access to the Porsche Car Emulator, a digital image of a vehicle, where applications can be simulated and tested under conditions that mirror the real world.
For five weeks, developer teams in the US will have the chance to work with realistic vehicle data from more than 140 open programming interfaces. The competition is aimed at developer teams from companies with ideas for data-driven B2B and B2C technology services.
The event is new for the American market and the fourth open innovation competition that Porsche has organised.
“This is a great opportunity for new, up and coming developers, but also to collaborate and exchange ideas,” says Dr. Kjell Gruner, President and CEO of PCNA. “As we continue to refine and enhance the Porsche customer experience, we are excited to share our resources with and encourage young companies passionate about developing and shaping the future of mobility.”
