QNX Software Systems Limited Key Developments

Euroimpianti S.P.A. Uses QNX Software Systems Limited’s QNX Neutrino OS to Power the Realtime Control Systems and Human Machine Interfaces of its Next-Generation Autonomous Warehouse Robots

QNX Software Systems Limited announced that Euroimpianti S.p.A. will use the release of the QNX Neutrino OS to power the realtime control systems and human machine interfaces (HMIs) of its next-generation autonomous warehouse robots A long-established QNX customer, Euroimpianti uses the QNX Neutrino OS in the control systems of all of its existing robots, including driverless forklifts that can load and unload trucks without human intervention. Until recently, however, Euroimpianti used another OS for the HMIs of its operator panels. Euroimpianti re-assessed this approach after evaluating the HMI capabilities of the QNX Neutrino OS 6.6 and the new QNX SDK for Apps and Media, and now plans to use QNX Neutrino in the HMIs, as well as in the control systems, of its future products. The QNX SDK for Apps and Media extends the capabilities of the QNX Neutrino OS 6.6, enabling embedded developers to create rich user interfaces and applications with HTML5, JavaScript, CSS, and other Web technologies. The SDK offers secure application management, comprehensive multimedia support, mobile device connectivity, an optimized HTML5 engine, and other advanced features for building mobile-class user experiences into embedded devices.

QNX Software Systems Limited Launches QNX Wireless Framework

QNX Software Systems Limited announced the launch of the QNX Wireless Framework, a complete software solution that allows embedded systems developers to make cellular and Wi-Fi hardware changes without having to rewrite software applications or change how the applications run. Modem technology for embedded systems is evolving quickly, creating demand for system designs that can rapidly and flexibly support the latest cellular or Wi-Fi communications hardware. The QNX Wireless Framework achieves this through an easy-to-use application programming interface (API) that remains consistent, regardless of the underlying cellular or Wi-Fi module or chipset. The API simplifies system design for medical devices, industrial controllers, and in-car infotainment units by managing the complexities of modem control. Further, the QNX Wireless Framework provides a rich feature set to enable a variety of useful vertical-specific applications. The QNX Wireless Framework is highly flexible, providing customers with pre-integrated support for cellular and Wi-Fi modules from vendors, including Gemalto, Sierra Wireless, Telit Wireless Solutions, and u-blox AG.

QNX Software Systems Limited Announces QNX® Hypervisor 1.0

QNX Software Systems announced the QNX® Hypervisor 1.0, a realtime Type 1 hypervisor for medical devices, industrial automation systems, and automotive applications such as car infotainment systems, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), and digital instrument clusters. By using the QNX Hypervisor, embedded system developers can consolidate multiple operating systems onto a single compute platform or system-on-chip (SoC), thereby reducing the cost, size, weight, and power consumption of their products. The QNX Hypervisor simplifies the certification process for safety-critical systems by allowing developers to keep safety-related and non-safety-related software components fully isolated from each other. The QNX Hypervisor can also simplify the sharing of other resources, including network connections, file systems, and input/output devices such as the I2C serial bus. Developers are spared the effort of writing custom shared-device drivers that increase testing and certification costs and that typically exhibit lower performance than vendor-supplied device drivers. The QNX Hypervisor also helps companies preserve their software investments by minimizing the work required to port software from legacy systems to new hardware platforms. QNX Software Systems' business is deeply focused on markets that, according to recent data from VDC Research, will significantly increase adoption of hypervisors and other The QNX Hypervisor complies with standards such as IEC 61508 for industrial safety, ISO 26262 for automotive safety, and IEC 62304 for medical device software. Select customers will begin evaluating the QNX Hypervisor 1.0 in April 2015. It is scheduled for general release in third quarter of 2015.
