Intel teams up with QNX to Build Car of the Future

Companies advance automotive technology for innovative in-vehicle experiences

Intel announced today that it is collaborating with QNX to advance in-vehicle technologies that deliver new driving experiences. The effort will focus on new innovation for dashboard functionality within cars, including infotainment systems, digital instrument clusters and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

Connected cars are the third-fastest-growing technological device after phones and tablets, with automakers spending much more of their budgets on infotainment and in-car technology. Under this collaboration, the companies will help automakers optimize those technology investments by designing and engineering development systems that simplify driving tasks, enhance driver awareness, and provide connectivity to online services and mobile devices.

“As the automotive electronics industry continues to progress, innovative collaborations are critical to deliver on ever-increasing demands for a safer, more connected driver experience,” said Elliot Garbus, vice president and general manager, Intel Transportation Solutions Division.

“Intel and QNX Software Systems have complementary technologies that work together to enhance consumer experiences and help make the promise of connected cars a reality.”

This collaboration will help to accelerate the delivery of ADAS and infotainment services, and is part of Intel’s ongoing work with automakers and in-vehicle infotainment suppliers to help integrate advanced technologies into cars.

“While QNX Software Systems has collaborated with Intel for more than 30 years on a wide range of embedded solutions across many generations of Intel architecture, today’s announcement marks an important milestone of combining QNX software and Intel hardware for cars,” said John Wall, chief operating officer, QNX Software Systems.

“QNX and Intel are recognized world leaders in their respective domains and the collaboration provides an exciting opportunity to create compelling and innovative products for the automotive industry.”

This week, at TU-Automotive Detroit, QNX Software Systems (booth C92) will demonstrate the latest upgrades to its QNX CAR Platform for Infotainment, including a completely redesigned user interface, running on Intel® Atom™ processors.

Designed to simplify the development of connected infotainment systems, the QNX CAR Platform offers integrated support for advanced graphics, smartphone connectivity, voice recognition frameworks, fast booting, acoustic echo cancellation and noise reduction, and multiple app environments such as Qt and HTML5.
