The continuously growing trend of “always connected” is starting to influence the automotive industry. People are becoming more and more used to consuming both content and services wherever they are, which also applies when driving. Today a driver's only choice is to consume the services and content trough his phone because the automotive industry has no chance to keep up with the rapid development cycles of the ND and CE industry. By using Qt, in a future infotainment system, the OEMs will be able to change this. A Qt based system enables them to piggy back on the development already done in other industries giving them shorter time to market, lower cost, more flexibility and a huge step towards a better user experience.
