QNX and Alcatel-Lucent drive home with strategic partnership award

This just in: OCRI, Ottawa’s lead economic development agency, has announced that QNX Software Systems and Alcatel-Lucent have won the 2010 OCRI Strategic Partnership Award.

QNX and Alcatel-Lucent were chosen for their collaboration on the LTE Connected Car, a concept vehicle that showcases how 4G/Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband networks will make the automobile a first-class citizen of the cloud.

QNX Software Systems provided the software foundation for the LTE Connected Car, including the operating system, touchscreen user interfaces, media players for YouTube and Pandora, navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity, multimedia playback, handsfree integration, games, and a virtual mechanic. All components are based on the QNX CAR application platform.

This isn't the first time the QNX CAR platform has come to the attention of award judges. Back in October, it won an Adobe MAX award for transforming the driving experience through innovative use of Adobe Flash technology.
