Ford Motor Company is challenging software developers to create the best mobile or web-based apps that will help customers easily access their personal fuel-economy performance data. With this data, using on-road personalized experiences, customers can share, compare and learn how to optimize their fuel usage. Developers must use data via the OpenXC platform. Winners will receive $50,000.

Developers have two options: buy a hardware kit from Ford or use the company's emulator data, already available for free on the carmaker's website. All apps must be built using Ford's Open XC architecture. According to the company's guidelines, submitted mobile and Web apps must illustrate how driving style, weather, location, and other factors can affect fuel economy.
