You're Invited: Design the Future of Automotive Infotainment

 

Like many of us you are probably using your car almost every single day: commute to work, take the kids to school, run errands, go shopping, or just for fun. You name it. And while spending all this time on the road you may be using the in-vehicle infotainment system built into your ride for navigation, listening to music from the radio, accessing content stored on my mobile device, making phone calls, getting traffic updates and much more. And whether or not you are entirely happy with the solution that the maker has built into your car you may have the one or other idea on how things can be improved. Or maybe you think this is all lame and you can do a much better job. Well, here is your opportunity.

The Linux Foundation's Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) collaboration project is announcing the first AGL User Experience Contest. We are calling for all programmers, software engineers, web designers, car enthusiasts and anyone who loves a challenge to participate in designing the future of automotive infotainment.

Enter the contest and design the user experience you would like to see in your next ride using HTML5, CSS and JavaScript. AGL provides a framework for you to download, modify and extend as your creativity inspires you. The sky is the limit. You may create a new theme for the existing applications, create new applications, redesign the entire framework.

From all submissions received by the deadline on May 17, 2013 at 11:55pm a jury of experts will be electing a winner and two runners up in these categories:
    •    Best User Experience
    •    Best Visual Appearance
    •    Best New Concept / Additional feature

Each winner and runners up in each category will be receiving a tablet computer valued at $450. In addition to that the winners of each category will receive the opportunity to collaborate with AGL and Jaguar Land Rover on a proof of concept.

For details about the contest, terms and conditions, and how to enter visit the Automotive Grade Linux website.
