Splunk And Ford Connected Cars Gas Analytics (Photo: Business Wire)

Splunk Inc. (NASDAQ:SPLK), provider of the leading software platform for real-time operational intelligence, and Ford Motor Company, a global automotive industry leader, today announced Connected Car Dashboards, a collaborative project that collected and analyzed data from vehicles to gain insight into driving patterns and vehicle performance. Using Ford’s OpenXC research platform to gather data from connected vehicles, Splunk employees hit the streets of San Francisco in a Ford Focus Electric vehicle and a gas-powered Ford Escape. The data was then indexed, analyzed and visualized in Splunk® Enterprise and made publicly available in the Connected Car Dashboards. Watch the test drive and learn more about the results in the Connected Cars video. The project is part of Splunk4Good, Splunk’s corporate social responsibility program.

“The Connected Car Dashboards give a glimpse into a promising future in which data could transform vehicle and driver safety as well as design, productivity and other areas of the automotive industry,” said Christy Wilson, vice president of product operations, Splunk. “Splunk’s mission is to make machine data more accessible, valuable and usable to everyone, and Splunk4Good extends those goals by using data to make a difference. Splunk is thrilled to be working with Ford to help usher in an open data movement in the automotive industry.”

“The car is a platform, and we’re excited by the opportunities that are emerging as we provide makers and developers with access to real-time vehicle data,” said TJ Giuli, Silicon Valley research lab leader for Ford. “Collaborating with software companies like Splunk enables us to explore entirely new applications for vehicle data such as energy efficiency and driver habits.”
