QNX and AdasWorks Collaborate on Automated Driving Technology

Last updated:

QNX Software Systems, a subsidiary of BlackBerry, and AdasWorks, an innovative startup developing artificial intelligence-based software for automated driving, today announced a technology partnership focused on advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles.

As part of the new initiative, the companies are porting several AdasWorks functions, including lane detection, moving-object detection, and object classification, to QNX OS platforms.

The goal is to create a software foundation for intelligent, multi-camera systems that enable automated driving by providing a 360-degree view of the area around the vehicle.

“Next-generation automated driving applications, such as the intelligent object detection in a surround-view system, can provide enhanced comfort and safety. Through AdasWorks’ integration with QNX OS technology, our mutual partners and customers will be able to access a solution that complies with industry standards and safety requirements,” said Laszlo Kishonti, Founder and CEO of AdasWorks.

“Building on our knowledge in computer vision and artificial intelligence, we are ready to take the next steps with QNX Software Systems, the leading experts in automotive embedded systems and safety-critical software platforms.”

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

“An OS with proven safety credentials is essential to any semi- or fully-autonomous vehicle, but the vehicle also needs to process a huge amount of information about the world around it,”

“Advanced, neural networks-based algorithms, combined with the right OS, can be key to interpreting and processing multi-camera and multi-sensor-based data efficiently. Together, AdasWorks and QNX technologies can enable the industry to implement automated driving features more quickly and cost effectively.”
