Ford attaches great importance to the field of developers, not only in the Asia Pacific region and Africa to start the APP Developer Program (Ford Software Development Program), but also Sensor to provide the necessary software AppLink to GENIVI Alliance, becoming the first open source program of the American car company , Hoping to enrich its car infotainment system.
Ford Motor Company said he was not a car company, but a technology company. Soon the car will be able to monitor the health of the human body, even when the driver is sick or sleep when he can take over the automatic driving car.
