QNX Software Systems Limited and Digia Plc today announced that Digia is ready to support Qt 5 on the QNX Neutrino Realtime Operating System and QNX CAR Platform for Infotainment under the Qt Enterprise offering.
As new trends such as app-based interfaces emerge in embedded device markets, companies are looking for more open system solutions. With the release of Qt 5, UI designers and developers targeting automotive, medical, and industrial systems can leverage the same industry-standard, high-performance UI technology to deliver a feature-rich user experience across multiple platforms. Qt 5 features design enhancements, new modules, and support for the leading mobile platforms.
“Across many vertical markets such as automotive infotainment, security, industrial, and medical, we have seen a tremendous need for Qt as a strategic application and UI development framework because of its unique ability to provide amazing UI capabilities as well as core backend business logic — all with one framework,” said Tuukka Turunen, Director of R&D, Digia, Qt. “QNX Software Systems has been a major driver of Qt, and we are thrilled with the company’s support of our most innovative and feature-rich release, Qt 5.”

Designed for flexibility, the platform supports a rich choice of application environments and smartphone connectivity, as well as a comprehensive set of pre-integrated components to help automotive companies build connected, custom-branded, and media-rich infotainment systems.
The QNX Neutrino OS is used in a vast array of applications worldwide, from medical devices to building automation systems, Internet routers, power plants, and railway control centers. Whether you drive to work, use the Internet, turn on a light, or watch TV, chances are, you are taking advantage of systems that rely on QNX® technology.
“Our number one priority is to provide customers with the OS, tools, and services to enable them to develop and deploy reliable and high-performance automotive, medical, and industrial systems. Qt 5 provides our customers with leading cross-platform application and UI technology that lets them develop systems that set them apart from their competitors,” said Grant Courville, Director of Product Management, QNX Software Systems. “We're very happy to have an optimized and integrated version of Qt 5 added to the portfolio of HMI technologies available for the QNX Neutrino OS and QNX CAR Platform.”
