QNX software tops 50 million vehicle installations

Ottawa-based QNX software, a subsidiary of BlackBerry, announced Monday its software has been installed in the infotainment and telematic systems of more than 50 million vehicles, manufactured all over the world.

The announcement comes as QNX is in Las Vegas this week, showcasing its latest technology at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show.

"The automotive industry is constantly evolving, but as always, our priority is to provide platforms that have the performance, reliability, and flexibility that customers need to develop compelling, differentiated products," QNX’s global director of business development Andrew Poliak, said in a statement.

IHS Automotive also issued a new report Monday, declaring QNX the premier software supplier in the infotainment market.

The report also forecast QNX would be the market leader for “years to come - growing from more than 16 million units in 2013 to 56 million in 2020.”
