Nokijin odjel za kartografiju i navigaciju HERE, BlackBerryjev QNX i Qualcomm su objavili kako su sklopili partnerstvo kojim će pokušati osvojiti automobile. Do sada je automobil korišten prvenstveno kao sredstvo za prijevoz, ali divovi ‘tech’ industrije, kao i kolege iz automobilske industrije, sve više vide auto kao novi pametni gadget.
QNX Software Systems, u vlasništvu BlackBerryja, proizvođačima automobila pruža uslugu ‘Platform for Infotainment’ kojom su obuhvaćene usluge informiranja korisnika o prometu kao i zabava u vidu reprodukcije glazbe i slično. QNX Platform for Infotainment će u buduće pružiti podršku za HERE Auto rješenje predstavljeno od strane HERE-a, odjela zaduženog za kratografiju i navigaciju u vlasništvu Nokije.
Kao treći partner se našao Qualcomm, čiji će čipovi pogoniti pametne sustave u automobilima. Qualcomm je najavio osvajanje tog tržišta sa četverojezgrenim Snapdragon 600A procesorom s Adreno 330 grafičkim čipom te ostalim komponentama i uslugama zaduženim za osiguravanje najboljeg korisničkog iskustva u automobilima.
