Delphi has chosen QNX’s CAR platform to use in its next-generation infotainment system, and it is demonstrating it right now at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
“Our more than ten-year collaboration with QNX Software Systems has resulted in highly successful infotainment solutions that we''ve been able to bring to market quickly, thanks to the efficient, modular architecture of the QNX platform and its rich associated toolset," Jugal Vijayvargiya, senior vice president of Delphi and president of Delphi Electronics & Safety, said in a statement. "We're very pleased to now extend our work on advanced in-vehicle technology with the latest version of the platform, which we were able to experience through QNX Software Systems'' early access program."
“QNX Software Systems has been honored to support Delphi''s commitment to innovative automotive solutions for more than a decade," added Derek Kuhn, vice president of Sales and Marketing at QNX Software Systems. "Our mission is to enable our customers to develop at the pace of mobile phone innovation, and to help them create a compelling in-vehicle experience for their customers by seamlessly bringing in the information and entertainment they can now access at work and home."
The CAR platform uses HTML5 to generate a graphical interface for automotive applications. It is intended to provide a complete stack to allow auto manufacturers to build infotainments systems in cars without a lot of extra work.
Delphi will be demonstrating the system at booth number 730 in the North Hall at the CES (News - Alert) event now underway. The 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show will run from January 8 to January 11.
QNX is a subsidiary of Research in Motion and in addition to Delphi counts Audi, Cisco, General Electric, Lockheed Martin (News - Alert) and Siemens among its clients. The Ottawa, Ontario, Canada-based company has licensed its software to vehicle manufacturers all over the world. Its products are used in a number of automotive functions.
