The Porsche Data Cup allows programmers to test app mock-ups and develop new digital services with the help of the Porsche Car Emulator. The Emulator simulates real applications and, in doing so, grants participants access to replicated vehicle data, with which they can test out their ideas under realistic conditions. This is already the third open innovation competition that Porsche has organised together with the Berlin technology start-up High Mobility.
“We are confident that we as a company can only benefit from so many new ideas and innovations. Previous competitions have proven that to be the case,” said Andy Grau, Innovation Manager at Porsche. “We want to further expand the Porsche ecosystem and are looking forward to collaborating with other companies to collectively shape the future with new apps and services.”
For more than six weeks, developer teams will have the chance to work with realistic vehicle data from more than 140 open programming interfaces. The competition is aimed at developer teams from companies with ideas for data-driven services for smart home, fintech and insurance, and e-mobility applications.
Winning teams to present at the largest open innovation platform in Europe
The Porsche Data Cup begins on 17 May 2021, though registration will also remain open during the implementation phase until 25 June 2021. The winners will be selected in July by an expert judging panel and be given the opportunity to present their project on 22 July 2021, on EXPO Day 10 of Startup Autobahn – Europe’s biggest open innovation platform between established companies and technology start-ups.
In addition, the winning teams will have the chance to develop their prototype together with Porsche experts. To do so, they will receive access to interfaces of Porsche Connect Partner Services, with which selected service providers can access vehicle data.
What is Porsche Connect Partner Services?
Porsche Connect Partner Services was developed to offer Porsche drivers a whole ecosystem of tailored services for their car. “With Porsche Connect Partner Services, we are expanding our digital offering and providing customers with an enhanced Porsche experience,” said Manfred Wiedemann, Project Lead for Porsche Connect Partner Services.
