Automotive Operating Systems: QNX Versus Windows and Open Source

The ongoing automotive OS debate is very fluid and complex with most companies supporting several vehicle infotainment systems and multiple operating systems. Although the market is dominated at present by two players – Microsoft and QNX Software – this dominance is set to be challenged by a number of new platforms, both proprietary and open source, over the next few years as a number of new non-automotive players enter in the automotive industry.

This Technology Analysis discusses the merits of current operating systems and looks at how these systems are being adapted to face competition from new open source OS platforms such as GENIVI and Android.
