Luxoft Teams Up with QNX on Automotive ADAS Technologies

Collaboration focused on advanced technologies, including road scene reconstruction and augmented navigation, which can enable semiautonomous driving

Luxoft Holding, a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, and QNX Software Systems, a subsidiary of BlackBerry, has announced a new technology partnership focused on ADAS systems used by automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Tier 1 suppliers.

As part of the initiative, Luxoft will leverage its expertise in road-model based computer vision algorithms for tracking of objects such as vehicles, pedestrians, building facades, and road signs to bring a robust road scene reconstruction engine to the QNX OS platform. In working on the engine, Luxoft will utilize its proprietary CVNAR software framework, which incorporates solutions for augmented reality such as augmented guidance, navigation, points of interest (POIs), and destination highlighting.

“QNX is the leading solution provider in automotive infotainment, with its reliable operating system and middleware in more than 60 million vehicles,” said Georg Doll, Managing Director of Luxoft Automotive.

“We are excited to work together with QNX on bringing innovative ADAS technology to global automakers and Tier 1 suppliers as they gear up for autonomous driving. At Luxoft, we have invested in the computer vision and augmented reality technologies that will not only enable the next generation of head-up displays, but also become a crucial element of an autonomous vehicle. Together with QNX Software Systems’ high availability OS, we can enable customers with critical components to build solutions that power the adoption of ADAS systems.”

Andrew Poliak, Global Director of Business Development, QNX Software Systems said:

“Luxoft has a broad portfolio of technologies well-suited to help automotive OEMs and Tier 1s as they progress from discrete ADAS implementations to more integrated solutions,”

“By working together, we will enable customers to leverage QNX OS technology that has a proven history of safety certifications — a key requirement as ADAS systems perform higher levels of automation.”

Luxoft’s CVNARTM, a computer vision and augmented reality software framework, brings together a unique set of features and capabilities and can be used in two different ways. It can be adapted to a particular OEM’s requirements and present a ready-to-use solution on already supported systems-on-chip (SoCs). Or it can be available as a hardware-independent embedded solution that utilizes both the CPU and the GPU.

The CVNARTM framework can be easily integrated with heads-up and LCD displays, and supports smart glasses. Using eye-tracking algorithms and vehicle’s sensor data, the augmented navigation provides navigational hints, highlights road obstacles and destinations, and more.
