AppLink Application testing
Tech Available: AppLink Application testing

The Ford Developer Program is happy to partner with the Open Lab Alliance to provide interested Developers the opportunity to develop and test your AppLink-enabled application on a FordDev Technical Development Kit (TDK).

The TDK is the physical representation of what you experience in vehicle. It has the same software, voice command, radio faces and buttons that appear in a production vehicle. A proprietary Ford software program allows a developer to recreate nearly any combination of variable states that a vehicle on the road can enter in order to test the controls of a mobile app, driver interaction and driver effort.

Multiple Ford TDKs are available for application development and testing.  The OLA serves as one of a very few select sites qualified to support the testing and development activity.

NOTE: Please arrive at the lab with all the necessary items for connecting to the TDK.  The following items are your responsibility to bring:  your devices, cables, chargers, and headphones (earbuds), iOS USB connector, and laptop.
