Get in the Car with Ford and join us in Dublin!


Heart rate monitors, iWatch, health bands. They’re all around us but how can we better utilize them when driving?


Taking a call.. So 2010. How about connecting with your friends or interacting with social media safely while driving?


What applications could help you while driving? Do you constantly desire a way to access your email safely while on the go or do you feel like you want to add some tasks to that growing list?

Open Track

Have an idea that doesn’t fit in any of the pre-defined categories. Great! We want to hear about it!

Health & Safety

Think allergy alerts and generaly Apps that collect or provide data related to basic medical, environmental, or physical attributes.


We offer vehicle data as part of AppLink which means you’ll get details on GPS from the vehicle. What experiences could the driver benefit from while on the go?



Do you already have a smartphone app or have a great idea to create a new one? Come and adapt it for use in the vehicle. Make your app Driveable!

Join as a Team representing your organization or as an individual.


Have access and work on Ford’s next generation connected car kit SYNC 3 and engage with some of Ford’s top engineers.


We’re offering a significant prize package! Plus a way to ‘fast track’ your app to Ford’s global customer base.

If cash isn’t your main driving force of course participating in Ford’s first ever Ireland event is reason enough. You will have access to state of the art equipment, idea mentoring and of course top notch food & drinks.
