Who rules the dashboard today?
According to IHS Automotive, QNX held a 50% share of the automotive infotainment software platform market in 2012. Microsoft had a 25% share.
QNX has a proven record in IVI systems. However, the future scalability of QNX across next-generation systems that may require higher levels of feature integration is in question.
Microsoft has an established customer base, including Ford, Fiat, and Kia. However, its competitors stress the weakness of its IVI platform, its high royalty fee, a lack of openness to development community, and slow boot time.
