EMEA: QNX software connects the connected car

August 27th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Did you know that QNX has been around for over thirty years and has been a part of the Blackberry family for four? And they’ve been involved in the automotive landscape for ten years. QNX is the underlying software for many platforms in the telecommunications, automotive, medical instrumentation, automation, and security industries. So chances are you are using a product that incorporates their software without even knowing it.

For the purpose of this article I will focus on the automotive segment. As I’ve spoken with various players in the connected car space, it seems that there is still a lot of segregation between the way information is presented about the car performance itself and the infotainment services. One of the interesting points in the QNX solution is the ability to integrate this information into a single screen interface.

If you review the automotive offers QNX is currently working, there are solutions in all of the following areas: telematics, rear seat entertainment, active noise control, handsfree, driver information, infotainment and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). These factors combined focus on the performance, reliability, efficiency, safety and driving experience within the car.

Infotainment is a hot area of growth today, with consumers wanting to do more in their car and the mobile industry – handset vendors, mobile operators and app providers – all trying to stake a claim in this space. So who controls what happens here? The reality is that it differs by automobile OEM and local regulation. From a QNX perspective, it doesn’t matter. The software is intended to provide the tools to create a solution based on the individual requirements of the OEM.

For example, the control of infotainment content could be managed by the consumer’s mobile device or the car. Same with the music or video content. Although a third option here is that this content could be resident in the cloud. As far as the apps in the car, there are safety implications as to what is allowed of course, but moving beyond that they can also be enabled via the options mentioned above. WiFi hotspot on wheels, no problem either. QNX provided a demonstration for RCR Wireless as to the options enabled through their software tools and there’s quite a wide range of functionality.

There are a great deal of exciting developments happening in the Connected Car space every day. It seems to me that only our imagination is the limit. As more research firms conduct studies to determine the end users’ desires in this space and the OEM manufacturers and their underlying vendor partners continue to evolve their platforms, there should be many exciting developments in the future. Think about linking your in-car experience to your life outside of the car. Does your car soon become an extension of your home and office? A rolling combination of your workspace and your living room? Maybe this happens sooner then you think.


Google buys Zync, maker of visual effects software

August 27th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Special effects are awesome. Special effects are also expensive, which is one reason why budget movies feel like budget movies. If Google has its way, special effects will continue to become cheaper and more accessible.

The Internet giant said Tuesday that it bought Boston-based Zync Inc., the maker of Zync Render, a “cloud-based rendering software.” That’s software that helps movie studios take simple, computer-generated pictures of things like a giant robot bashing through a wall and make them look real (or at least kind of real) in movies like the “Transformers” series.

Zync Render has been used in movies like “Flight,” the Denzel Washington picture about a drunk and drugged-out airline pilot, as well as “Star Trek Into Darkness,” which needless to say had a lot of visual effects, according to an announcement on Google’s Cloud Platform Blog.

Google wouldn’t say how much it paid for Zync. The company will integrate Zync’s data and technology into the Google Cloud Platform, and move off Amazon Web Services.

Cloud networks — the biggest being Amazon’s Amazon Web Services and Google’s Cloud Platform — help companies grow quickly because instead of having to buy 1 million computers to host their data, companies can just rent them from giants like Amazon and Google.

Google has been beefing up its Cloud Platform recently, buying Stackdriver, a maker of cloud-monitoring software, in May.

And while the Google Cloud Platform already had rendering services, Zync, which was spun out of the visual effects studio ZERO VFX, has deep ties to the movie industry. Industry watchers expect Google to continue adding technological bells and whistles to its Cloud Platform — including through acquisitions — in a bid to get more customers and industries to rent space on its cloud.


Kaohsiung software park set to become regional hub

August 27th, 2014 by Amrinder No comments »

Kaohsiung Software Technology Park is quickly shaping up as a major regional hub with increasing investments from home and abroad, the Export Processing Zone Administration under the Ministry of Economic Affairs said Aug. 26.

A total of 250 investments worth NT$17.37 billion (US$580 million) have been made at the EPZA-run park as of July 2014, creating more than 3,500 jobs.

“The presence of industry heavyweights such as Foxconn Technology Group has significantly boosted the park’s cluster effect, helping create an entire industry value chain featuring upstream and downstream integration,” the administration said.

Key to attracting top firms was the establishment of a dedicated investment coordination platform, the EPZA said. “The streamlined operation has attracted industry leaders in cloud computing, computer graphics, e-commerce, entertainment and software.”

Located next to Kaohsiung Harbor, the 587-hectare business park is also close to Kaohsiung Exhibition Center, and conveniently serviced by Kaohsiung International Airport and the country’s first light rail system.

Other flagship firms operating in the zone include Brogent Technologies Inc., CGCG Inc., Ching Fu Shipbuilding, KKBox Inc. and Newegg Taiwan Inc.

Newegg is typical of the enterprises lured by the thriving business ecosystem. The U.S.-headquartered online retailer chose the park for its Taiwan base to tap horizontal integration opportunities rarely seen elsewhere. The company expects to expand from 60 to 250 staff in the near future, the EPZA said.

Leveraging its rich experience in business incubation, the administration is looking to further advancing the park’s development by introducing external resources, talent training programs and targeted assistance.

“With innovative marketing, service and technology as its core values, the park will continue to spearhead the information technology-based development of emerging industries in Taiwan,” the EPZA added.
