QNX drives into CES 2013 as a CES Innovations Award Honoree

Derek Kuhn
It is hard to believe that CES 2013 is less than eight weeks away. We look forward to it every year as it has become an important event not only for our company, customers, and partners, but for the automotive community as a whole. We will be hitting the 2013 event in style — and with an awesome award!

As a kick-off to CES, we exhibited at the CES Unveiled event in New York last week and gave folks an up-close and personal look at our reference vehicle – the specifically modified Jeep Wrangler Sahara. We demonstrated how our QNX CAR 2 application platform is helping to bring a new level of personalization into the vehicle. From the reskinnable digital instrument cluster, infotainment system, and media player to HD hands-free communication and voice recognition, the reference vehicle stole the show.

Adding to the excitement for the event was the announcement that the QNX CAR 2 application platform was named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree, in the Software & Mobile Apps category. Sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) the program was created to honor outstanding design and engineering in consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.

The countdown is on for CES 2013. Until then, check out my interview with the one and only Dave Graveline at CES Unveiled:
