Luxoft Teams Up with QNX on Automotive ADAS Technologies
"Collaboration focused on advanced technologies, including road scene reconstruction and augmented navigation, which can enable semiautonomous driving.
December 15, 2015 Luxoft Holding, Inc. NYSE:LXFT, a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, and QNX Software Systems Limited, a subsidiary of BlackBerry Limited, today announced a new technology partnership focused on ADAS systems used by automotive original equipment manufacturers OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.
As part of the initiative, Luxoft will leverage its expertise in road-model based computer vision algorithms for tracking of objects such as vehicles, pedestrians, building facades, and road signs to bring a robust road scene reconstruction engine to the QNX OS platform. In working on the engine, Luxoft will utilize its proprietary CVNAR software framework, which incorporates solutions for augmented reality such as augmented guidance, navigation, points of interest POIs, and destination highlighting.
QNX is the leading solution provider in automotive infotainment, with its reliable operating system and middleware in more than 60 million vehicles, said Georg Doll, Managing Director of Luxoft Automotive. We are excited to work together with QNX on bringing innovative ADAS technology to global automakers and Tier 1 suppliers as they gear up for autonomous driving. At Luxoft, we have invested in the computer vision and augmented reality technologies that will not only enable the next generation of head-up displays, but also become a crucial element of an autonomous vehicle. Together with QNX Software Systems high availability OS, we can enable customers with critical components to build solutions that power the adoption of ADAS systems.
Luxoft has a broad portfolio of technologies well-suited to help automotive OEMs and Tier 1s as they progress from discrete ADAS implementations to more integrated solutions, said Andrew Poliak, Global Director of Business Development, QNX Software Systems. By working together, we will enable customers to leverage QNX OS technology that has a proven history of safety certifications a key requirement as ADAS systems perform higher levels of automation.
Luxofts CVNARTM, a computer vision and augmented reality software framework, brings together a unique set of features and capabilities and can be used in two different ways. It can be adapted to a particular OEMs requirements and present a ready-to-use solution on already supported systems-on-chip SoCs. Or it can be available as a hardware-independent embedded solution that utilizes both the CPU and the GPU. The CVNARTM framework can be easily integrated with heads-up and LCD displays, and supports smart glasses. Using eye-tracking algorithms and vehicles sensor data, the augmented navigation provides navigational hints, highlights road obstacles and destinations, and more.
QNX Software Systems offers a comprehensive portfolio of infotainment, telematics, safety, and acoustics solutions deployed in more than 60 million vehicles worldwide. More than 40 automotive OEMs use QNX software, including the QNX Neutrino OS, the QNX OS for Safety compliant to ISO 26262, up to Automotive Safety Integrity Level D, the QNX CAR Platform for Infotainment, and QNX acoustics middleware, for their head units, digital instrument clusters, advanced driver information systems, hands-free systems, and connectivity modules.

What is best depends on your situation but some general rules of thumb can be given.Use ownCloud Provided Packages If You CanThe best solution from a security and stability point of view are the official ownCloud packages, provided you have the basic know-how needed to run your own Linux server.Packages give you the advantage of a relatively clean and easy upgrade process, with the ownCloud team taking care of any special steps which have to be taken.

Interesting in many aspects, but most has turned out to be for the better. I’ve gotten to know a bunch of awesome new people, I spoken about open source, Qt and Linux in Europe and USA, I’ve helped hosting an open source conference in Gothenburg, I’ve learned so much more professionally and as a person, and I’ve really enjoyed myself the whole time. 2016 was the year that… … myself and Jürgen where Qt Champions for our work with the qmlbook.

This ends the recent uncertainty in the Qt community, something that should be beneficial for the Qt ecosystem and the Qt users worldwide, including KDAB’s customers, and hopefully ensures the continuity and sustained funding of Qt development. KDAB is the second largest contributor to Qt5 today, and others are also investing heavily. There are some more quite big organizations in the desktop, industrial automation, automotive, IPTV space and elsewhere which ar...28.03.2013 Are you a senior KDE developer?

At the beginning of 2010, it's the perfect time for reflecting on the past year and make wishes for the new one so here I go with my analysis of KDE-Edu.Recent past In 2008 and 2009, things were slow: I was busy with my family and the 6 months release scheme did not allow me enough time to really get into a realease. Several KDE-Edu developers also slowed down at the same time, mainly also due to family life (several became new fathers, congratulations!) Since December 2007 I had no time to organize another meeting. The project still lived quite well on the development side: new developers joi...23.11.2015 Game Art Quest Kickstarter!
