Apple's CarPlay system has BlackBerry inside

The new CarPlay platform will soon be launched by Apple and this time we have another exciting news for the setup which allows iPhones to connect with infotainment and control systems in select cars which are going to start shipping soon enough. Looks like we will not only be looking at Cupertino's own iOS operating system, but the CarPlay is also going to work in collaboration with a QNX embedded OS owned by BlackBerry.

It must be noted here that the acquisition of QNX back in 2010 by Blackberry wasnt enough to help the company get back its lost glory but the presence of this software in many things has certainly given BlackBerry an edge. The QNX is present in embedded systems like in-vehicle infotainment and control platforms, medical equipment, cable TV boxes, Internet routers and they all show that Blackberry still is a player. The QNX is an integral part of the CarPlay system and we were not able to get any information on this because everyone was lost in the hype created by Apple's name's presence in the CarPlay.

BlackBerry's Paul Leroux told N4BB on Monday that CarPlay actually runs on top of QNX and he had the following things to say;

"Connectivity to smartphones and other mobile devices is a key strength of QNX Software Systems' platform for car infotainment systems, and many automakers and tier one automotive suppliers use our platform to implement smartphone/head-unit integration in their vehicles. We have a long-standing partnership with Apple to ensure high-quality connectivity with their devices, and this partnership extends to support for Apple CarPlay,"

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
