There are areas all across the world that currently challenge how we new inventory at Cambridge Classic Ford—whether that’s city traffic congestion, harsh terrain, public transportation, and more. To help tackle these challenges, Ford initiated the Mobility Challenge Series 2.0.
“As a key part of Ford Smart Mobility, our Innovate Mobility Challenge Series helps us engage and collaborate with developers and individuals outside of Ford to find innovative mobility solutions that improve people’s lives,” said Ken Washington, vice president, Ford Research and Advanced Engineering, Ford Motor Company, in a statement. “Technology and global trends are reshaping the transportation landscape, and it’s important to implement solutions that have local relevance for people in different cities.”
This year’s challenges build on the success of the Mobility Challenge Series 1.0 and ask for mobility solutions for Mexico City, Sao Paulo, the Australian Outback, and most recently, the Hsuehshan Tunnel in Taipei, Taiwan.
In the Hsuehshan Tunnel Transformer Challenge, Ford has asked developers to come up with ways to cut through the traffic between Taipei and nearby Yilan. The submission deadline runs until November 19 and is open to worldwide submissions. The grand prize submission will win $15,000.
