Earlier this month, anyone attending CES may have stumbled across a QNX CAR demo and (unfortunately) might not have known it. We were demo’d in at least 3 private suites that I know of – TI was showcasing QNXCAR on a beagleboard in their suite at the Hilton, Rovi was showing their integrated media management on QNXCAR at their suite in Caesars and finally Alcatel Lucent had the LTE car in a ballroom at the Venetian. QNXCAR was also featured on the show floor in a demo at the Nvidia booth. The demo was created by Audi and showcases their MMI 3G system which is shipping today in the A8 and is based on QNX software. Here are some pics and a link to an interview on Youtube with Audi’s Mathias Halliger who leads the MMI 3G development.
