The past 10 years
the past 10 years

  • How phones looked 10 years ago

    • Mobile, but not smart at all

    • Remember the Razr?

  • How automobile dashboards looked 10 years ago

    • Cassette decks, AM/FM dials, hardly any digital display at all

    • CD player if you were lucky

Where are we headed now
Where are we headed now?

  • Mobile app is going, well... Mobile

  • Cars have built in “tablets” that do a lot more than standard

  • Developers are being welcomed in the automobile industry

    • Could this be a new niche in web development?

    • What does this mean for us web developers?

An intro to applink
An intro to applink

  • Introduced in 2007

  • Connected/controlled phones and digital music players

  • January 2013 - first open mobile app developer program for automobiles

  • Lets mobile app developers create content for use in-car

  • Could be part marketing ploy, part industry innovation?

"We’re allowing developers to directly interface with our vehicles to create apps that will continuously personalize the driving experience,”

-John Ellis, Ford Global Technologist


How an applink app is made
How an applink app is made

Much like the apps in Apple’s App store, a review is done before being made public. However, I’m sure there are ways to bypass this (like how jailbreaking a phone is done)


What the critics say
What the Critics say

“Ford's solution is a good one […] providing a simple interface for apps to stream audio through the car and receive voice commands from it. Apps can even pull in some information from car data like location and speed”

-Cnet.com correspondent Tim Stevens

  • Not the be-all-end-all solution to automobile app interfaces, but it’s close

  • Some companies are taking it a step further…

Apple carplay
Apple carplay

  • Recently debuted at the Geneva auto show

  • Apps are shown on “infotainment” system in the dash

  • Only native & 3rd party apps are supported

    • Third party apps are strictly music right now

    • In the future, wouldn’t it be nice to see apps like Wazesupported?

  • Only compatible with the newest iOS mobile device

What the critics say1
What the critics say

“Rather than a revolution in dashboard infotainment, what I saw in CarPlay was an evolution of iOS music library integration in cars.” - Cnet correspondent Wayne Cunningham

  • Is this better or worse than strictly in-dash user interfaces?

    • More versatile, yes

    • Less ‘experimentation’ though

  • How does Apple’s inability to support more 3rd party apps hurt them?

App development on the tesla s
App development on the tesla s:

No third party app support yet, but Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Motos says he “hopes to open the EV's infotainment system to third-party apps by the end of 2014.”

Cons for this kind of mobile app development
CONS for this kind of ‘mobile app’ development:

  • Rapid upgrades in the smartphone industry is not always the case for transportation tech

    • The average person doesn’t upgrade their car as often as they do their phone

  • Automobile touch interfaces pose a danger to the road

    • Should we even bother learning and implementing these UI’s if they’re just going to be outlawed?

    • How does the dashboard tie into “using phones while on the road?”

Things to think about
Things to think about

  • What kind of security issues does a third-party app pose when used in one’s transportation?

  • How is developing for an automobile different?

    • What factors could be used to the developer’s benefit?

    • What factors could be hard to work with?

  • How can we apply our skills we are learning now to that technology?

  • Will new technology completely replace the old, or will we adapt?
