Default Re: Ford announces global 'Innovate Mobility Series' challenge

There are 8 different challenges thrown in at developers. Each challenge is specific to a region. For example, for Mumbai: the 'Monsoon App Downpour Challenge' is designed to improve mobility during the monsoons; for Delhi: the 'SUMURR Golden Hour Challenge' is designed to reduce the time to reach healthcare facilities during the 'Golden Hour'; and for Chennai: the 'SUMURR mHealth Challenge' focuses on improving healthcare service accessibility for remote rural regions that are accessible from Chennai.
