QNX CAR 2
As the cars of tomorrow gain internet connections and applications, they'll need infotainment software that allows them to be as flexible and easily updated as your average smartphone. RIM subsidiary QNX Software Systems Limited thinks that the solution to that problem lies in the HTML5 framework showed in its new HTML5-based QNX CAR 2 application platform at CES 2012.
Designed to be easily reskinned and customised by automotive OEMs, the QNX CAR 2 operating system allows automakers to quickly and inexpensively develop and implement HTML5 applications and services for their vehicles' infotainment system. Likewise, CAR 2 supports Qt, OpenGL ES and other user-interface technologies, and rolls in other QNX technologies, including the Neutrino real-time operating system, a multimedia framework and an acoustic processing library for hands-free systems, hopefully blending each of these technologies in one, seamless user experience.
