Pioneer has tasked app developers to work non-stop to create the next big app to work with Pioneer’s AppRadio, an in-dash car stereo that controls compatible apps directly from its touchscreen.
The 69-hour event will span the length of the SEMA Show, beginning Tuesday, October 30, and concluding with an award presentation, Friday, November 2. Developers will work around the clock for a chance to take home more than $50,000 in cash and prizes. First-, second- and third-place winners will be awarded in three app categories, including:
- Social Networking Automotive Apps: Concept for In-Vehicle Social Networking Services (SNS)
- Location-Based Services (LBS) Apps: Concept for Geo-Fenced or Geo-Tagged Automotive Related Services
- Automotive Accessory Apps: Concept incorporating one or more of SEMA exhibitor’s technology(s), products or services.
