HCL Apps on Ford's car development platform OpenXC
HCL, has developed two applications "Late Arrival Notification" and "Safe arrival notification". The app will allow driver to provide selected personal contacts, whom he wants to notify while he is getting late or reaches safely at a destination. By monitoring location and speed information from the vehicle through OpenXC interface, the app can determine if driver is running late for a meeting and then send an e-mail or text message notification to other attendees automatically. Similarly app will notify the driver's family following a safe arrival after a road trip.
