Our friends at QNX Software Systems have wowed us once again! The talented team is driving away from the 2015 CES as an Engadget Best of CES Award finalist in the automotive category. The company was honored for the cutting-edge, digital mirrors implemented on its 2015 QNX technology concept car – based on a Maserati Quattroporte GTS.
With advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) influential in the design of this year's QNX vehicle, replacing the mirrors on the Maserati with digital screens to warn of possible collisions and enhance visibility for the driver was a natural choice. Not only do the side-view screens eliminate blind spots, the mirrors display a visual warning if an obstacle is in the way when you signal a lane change.
QNX was the only software provider named a finalist in the category which also featured prestigious automotive OEM brands including Audi, Daimler (Mercedes-Benz) and BMW. We are thrilled for the entire QNX team for their ongoing CES success.
Take a bow, QNX team!
