QNX Technology by BlackBerry Powers Automated Fare Collection System in Singapore and ASEAN

The same system that powers BlackBerry phones, QNX Neutrino OS, is now 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 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. The highly resilient architecture of the QNX Neutrino OS, which minimizes attack vectors, was a natural choice for the new design of the fare collection system. 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 made it easy to create an intuitive user interface through its support for advanced graphics technologies, including HTML5.
