BlackBerry has teamed up with Desay SV Automotive to launch a dual-screen virtual smart cabin domain controller which it says will enable safer driving.
Leveraging its QNX Hypervisor and the QNX Real-time Operating System (RTOS), the technology is now available in leading Chinese auto maker Chery’s Tiggo 8 Plus and Jetour X90 models.
According to the company, the QNX Hypervisor provides the reliability and performance of its QNX Neutrino RTOS, while also allowing multiple operating systems to safely co-exist on the same system-on-a-chip (SoC). With the QNX Hypervisor, developers can partition and isolate safety-critical and infotainment systems, ensuring the continued function of critical systems even if other components fail.
“Thanks to its advanced technology and rapid application abilities, Desay SV Automotive is well positioned to provide a smart cabin with a multi-sensory immersive experience,” said John Wall, SVP and co-head of BlackBerry Technology Solutions.
“Augmented with secure and reliable BlackBerry QNX technology, together we can address the diverse needs of an auto industry that is undergoing rapid transformation.
“We are pleased that BlackBerry’s technology can provide support to the innovative smart cabin of Chery’s Tiggo 8 Plus and Jetour X90 and look forward to providing the automotive industry with a more integrated and powerful smart cabin, as well as additional smart drive solutions in the future.”
