Collaboration to enable greater choice of navigation services for automakers and automotive Tier 1 suppliers
QNXÃ‚Â have announced that ZENRIN DataCom Co., Ltd., a leading provider of premium mapping services and products, will integrate its Its-mo NAVI [Drive] 2013 application with theÃ‚Â QNX CAR Platform for Infotainment
Its-mo NAVI [Drive] 2013 is a high-performance navigation application for smartphones that provides users with access to maps, local fuel prices, and available parking spots. ZENRIN DataCom and QNX Software Systems will demonstrate integration of Its-mo NAVI [Drive] and the QNX CAR Platform at Smartphone Japan, May 14-16, 2014, ZDC Booth, East Hall 34-5, Tokyo Big Sight, Japan.
According to ZENRIN DataCom,
“The automotive market in Japan and the rest of Asia is a vibrant and compelling environment for app developers but market volume is significantly lower than that for smartphones. A cross-platform concept is key as it enables apps to run on both smartphones and vehicle head units with minimal changes. The QNX CAR Platform, with its rich support for mobile application environments, is a very attractive feature for app developers in the mobile world.”
QNX Software Systems has licensed its software technology for use in tens of millions of in-vehicle systems worldwide, including 3D navigation systems, multimedia head units, digital instrument clusters, connectivity modules, and hands-free systems. The company’s QNX CAR Platform for Infotainment offers a unique set of pre-integrated technologies to help reduce development efforts and speed time to market for connected, media-rich infotainment systems. The platform is also highly flexible, providing customers with support for a rich choice of application environments, smartphone platforms, user interface technologies, and connectivity standards.
“ZENRIN DataCom are leaders in this space, and we look forward to working with them on bringing the benefits of their industry-leading navigation app to the QNX CAR Platform for Infotainment,” said Peter McCarthy, director, global partnerships, QNX Software Systems. “We were impressed with the ease of migrating their feature-rich solution, and we hope to integrate more of their products and services in the future.”
