QNX wins Tech CARS award

BlackBerry subsidiary QNX are no strangers to winning industry awards and now that we're well into 2016 already, they've got a new year to collect some more. First up, Auto Connected Car News has calculated the votes for their Tech CARS Awards and in the category of Best Backhaul Software or Development Platform for Automakers, QNX has been named the winner by capturing the vast majority of the votes. On their win, QNX had noted:

Thank you to Auto Connected Car News and all the people and companies who voted for us in the Tech CARS Awards. We pride ourselves on offering flexible development platforms that enable automakers to deliver unique, branded experiences. Working with leading-edge automakers and Tier 1 suppliers drives us (pardon the pun) to continue upping our game in advanced platforms for infotainment, digital instrument clusters, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and acoustics – including, of course, the recently announced QNX Platform for ADAS and QNX Acoustics Management Platform. We would also like to congratulate our fellow award winners, Ford and Harman. Ford won for Overall Best Car Infotainment Software by Automaker for their QNX-powered SYNC 3 connectivity system.

In addition to taking home the Tech CARS Award, it has now also been announced that QNX is a finalist in the category of Best Mobile Innovation for Automotive at the Global Mobile Awards, newly rebranded as the Glomo Awards. Those awards will take place on February 23 at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona, Spain.
