QNX unveils next generation hands-free software

QNX Software
Systems, a global provider of software, tools, and engineering services for the
in-car telematics and infotainment market, announced that the QNX Aviage
Acoustic Processing Suite 2.0 is now available to automakers and automotive
Tier One suppliers to build hands-free solutions.

QNX Software
Systems’ acoustic processing software is used by 18 automakers on over 100
vehicle platforms in North America, Europe, and Asia.

Drivers are
adopting hands-free communication, which must provide a high level of accuracy
and clarity, even in a noisy automotive interior. The QNX Aviage Acoustic
Processing Suite is a field-tested solution for the receive- and send-side of
hands-free calls that manages acoustic echo cancellation (AEC), noise
reduction, wind blocking, dynamic parametric equalization (DPEQ), high
frequency encoding, and bandwidth extension.

The suite
helps automakers develop hands-free solutions cost-effectively by eliminating
the need for dedicated acoustic processing hardware and by shortening the
tuning process from days to hours.

The suite
now also supports larger vehicle chambers. Systems that use the QNX Aviage
Acoustic Processing Suite include the recently announced OnStar FMV, an
aftermarket rearview mirror that features core OnStar services such as
automatic crash response, turn-by-turn navigation, and hands-free calling.

use of hands-free calling in cars is increasing tremendously and QNX Software
Systems’ acoustic processing expertise supports some of today’s most advanced
in-vehicle solutions,” said Derek Kuhn, vice president, Global Marketing
and Business Development, QNX Software Systems.
