QNX has been drawing a lot of attentions at CES 2015 with its in-car technologies. The purpose of QNX in-car technologies is to promote an integrated driving experience, including safety technology and advanced driver assistance systems.
Recently, QNX digital mirrors have been awarded as one of the best automotive technology by Engadget. Unlike any other car manufacturers, QNX has equipped its cars' mirrors (rear and side) with cameras and displays as part of its ADAS (advance driver assistance systems) campaign.
Engadget explains the features of QNX digital mirrors as:
Unlike typical car mirrors, the cameras on the QNX car are able to easily reposition when reversing, for example, offering you a better and safer view. Another standout safety feature is the increased coverage, which means the car's blindspot is all but eliminated. Also, the side mirrors feature a colored strip in the lower section that turns red from green when something is approaching on that side. Sitting down in the cockpit during our demo, QNX's Alex James was able to show us what we'd see if the car's mirrors were still in place and the difference was fairly dramatic. This idea seems like a natural progression for the automotive world; we're curious to see if and how this eventually gets implemented.
