QNX Technology Powers Automated Fare Collection System from MSI Global
"System deployed in thousands of devices throughout Singapore, the Philippines, and Thailand.
OTTAWA, May 21, 2015QNX Software Systems Limited, a subsidiary of BlackBerry Limited, today announced that the QNX Neutrino OS is powering a fare collection system, which includes automatic gates, ticketing machines, and onboard bus equipment, throughout the Association of Southeast Asian Nations ASEAN, including Singapore, the Philippines, and Thailand. The system was created by MSI Global Pte Ltd, an international system integrator specializing in land-transport solutions and a subsidiary of the Land Transport Authority LTA of Singapore. LTA is responsible for planning, operating, and maintaining Singapores land transport infrastructure and systems.
The onboard bus equipment is an enhanced version of a QNX-based fare collection system that LTA has already deployed in more than 4,800 public buses in Singapore. MSI implemented the improved onboard bus equipment to replace existing equipment due for replacement, to further enhance performance, and to support various new fare products. Security was a key criterion for MSI, and the highly resilient architecture of the QNX Neutrino OS, which minimizes attack vectors, was a natural choice for the new design. QNX Neutrino helped reduce system costs through its fast, highly reliable performance, which allows multitasking of multiple subsystems while minimizing failures in the demanding operating environment of buses. QNX Neutrino also helped MSI create an intuitive user interface through its support for advanced graphics technologies, including HTML5.
MSIs experience with QNX Neutrino has been very favorable and we will continue to leverage the same secure OS for our future projects, said Silvester Prakasam, fare system business unit head, MSI. Creating a solution that could gain widespread adoption was also a key consideration in our choice of OS, and with QNX Neutrino we were able to create a design that is fast and reliable, yet affordable to customers in cost-sensitive regions.
As the enhanced onboard bus equipment demonstrates, embedded systems today need a comprehensive OS platform that encompasses everything from Web technologies and advanced graphics to security, connectivity, and high reliability, said John Wall, chief operating officer, QNX Software Systems. We are honored that MSI chose QNX for the new onboard bus equipment system; their decision is a testament not only to the success of the existing QNX-based LTA system, but to our deep experience in embedded transportation systems for cars, buses, planes, and trains.

VMware will operate the Mozy service on behalf of EMC without interruption. However, the strategic relevance of today’s news is what this group brings to VMware. Over the past 5 years, Mozy has built one of the best examples of a globally distributed, large-scale cloud offering. We believe that, by being directly engaged with the delivery of such a service...23.01.2010 Aaron Seigo (aseigo): key quest: webkit The list of "Key Quests for 2010" was alphabetical. It was a sensible ordering and it prevented me from having to prioritize them in some linear fashion that could never be definitive anyways: all the points are important, though often in different ways, for different reasons and even with different key audiences. So, alphabetical ordering it was! This meant that WebKit was going to be the last topic, and now here we are. (Honestly, I'm glad I'll be able to get back to more "stream of consciousness, spur of the moment" blogging! :)The topic of WebKit is not the easiest one. It's had its share ...24.01.2010 Lim Yuen Hoe (moofang): The Web, the Desktop, and the Google between I haven’t written a proper tech article since before I (re-)started this blog, so I thought it was high time. Besides, I’ve been wanting to write this post ever since I read some articles on Google’s Chrome OS, around the time right after my old blog vaporized. So there’s a couple of buzzwords to hopefully sucker you into clicking the ‘more’ button and actually reading the article – It’s about Google’s upcoming Chrome OS and it’s implications for the web, the desktop and the browser, as well as why desktop evolution can take an altern...11.06.2008 VMware Launches ThinApp 4.0 to Run Virtually Any Application on Any Windows Operating System without Conflict VMware ThinApp Agentless Application Virtualization Enables “Package Once, Deploy Anywhere” Non-Disruptive Virtual Applications. PALO ALTO, Calif., June 10, 2008 — VMware, Inc. (NYSE: VMW), the global leader in virtualization solutions from the desktop to the datacenter, today announced the upcoming availability of VMware ThinApp 4, an application virtualization solution that lets customers run multiple versions of virtually any application on any Windows operating system without conflict. For example, users can run both Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Explorer 7 on the same operating system ...11.01.2012 Architectures and ABIs detailed Yesterday I wrote about instruction set and ABI manuals. Today I’d like to go into details about the ABIs I listed there. This was done mostly as a summary for me: it’s tiresome to search for the information in the manuals, especially since some of the manuals are PDFs without links. For example, I never remember what is the order of the registers used in parameter passing on x86-64. So what you’ll find here is a listing of what I found interesting for when I might need to read or write assembly code.As a bonus for you, dear reader, I added a few words about each platform.Fir...14.07.2008 Hamish Rodda (blackarrow): KDevelop 4: A New Era I've decided to write a series of blogs detailing the work that has gone on behind the scenes for KDevelop version 4, the new IDE that is now 3 years in the making. Like KDE4, KDevelop has seen much work on essential internal mechanisms (much like the pillars of KDE), the power of which will become evident over the next year or so. Progress has been great recently, with the hackathon we had in Munich earlier this year, productive SoC projects and several more/new developers becoming active again, it's looking like we can expect to be releasing a pretty solid beta within about a month. The othe...17.05.2016 Embrace Open Source culture: the 5 common transformations. Article originally published at Linedin on May 15th 2016. This is a story of what I have lived or witnessed a few times so far. A story of an organization that used to consume, develop and ship proprietary software for many years. At some point in time, management took the decision of using Open Source. Like in most cases, the decision was forced by its customers, providers, competitors... and by numbers.A painful but unavoidable transformation was required.1.- Open Source consumerEngineers had to learn a new system, adapt or re-write those features that used to made the organization unique, t...08.02.2016 HIG about Simple vs. Advanced Settings KDE Project: UsabilityRecently the question was asked in the KDE forums how we handle advanced settings. While there is neither a best practice nor a common approach in KDE software, we actually discussed a similar concept in respect to the Plasma control modules (KCM). The updated organization of KCMs was implemented by the developers, the community decided about the basic layout, and a couple of proposals were done [1, 2]. So why don't generalize this idea and write a guideline? The following guideline proposal not only recapitulates what we considered for the KCM but also introduces some n...30.08.2016 GSoC Report - Wrapping up GSoC 2016 That’s it. After a combined total of 217 git commits, 6,202 lines of code added, and 4,167 lines of code deleted, GSoC 2016 is finally over. These twelve weeks of programming have been a very enriching experience for me and making this project has taught me a lot about production quality software development. Little did I know that a small project I had put together in a 6 hour session of messing around with Qt would lead to something as big as this!There have been many memorable moments throughout my coding period for the GSoC - such as the first time I got an ioslave to install co...
