QNX

Connectivity to smartphones and other mobile devices is a key strength of QNX Software Systems’ platform for car infotainment systems, and many automakers and tier one automotive suppliers use our platform to implement smartphone/head-unit integration in their vehicles. We have a long-standing partnership with Apple to ensure high-quality connectivity with their devices, and this partnership extends to support for Apple CarPlay.

Yes, Apple CarPlay runs on QNX. Makes sense - I'm guessing (?) in-car software needs a lot of certification and testing, which QNX' in-car platforms all already have.

Possibly a better analogy: AirPlay can be used on Windows PCs using apps like AirParrot. If I was streaming iOS content and apps to a Windows PC via AirPlay via AirParrot, would you say that the iOS device output is now built on Windows? No, you would not.
