Interview with John Musser (Ford Motor Company)

Dec 17, 2020

“Software is eating your car” claims John Musser (Director, Platforms, Ford Autonomous Vehicles). We wrap up Season 1 with an episode that explores new affordances and unique functionalities that are triggered by a broader connectivity between vehicles, IoT devices and other elements of the transportation space.

The interview delves into questions, like

  • What opportunities do API connected vehicles open up?
  • How can you navigate an API program in a highly regulated industry?
  • What factors drive an API program of a large automotive organization?
  • What are the key steps of structuring an API program first “at home”, then in the retail and commercial markets?

    The hosts are Kristof Van Tomme and Mark Winberry.
