According to the companies, earlier multiple HMI that require a device-specific operating system (OS) was incorporated in vehicles. The new operating system independent platform dubbed Denso Harmony Core (DHC), which features Blackberry QNX hypervisor technology will be integrated into one microcomputer in the vehicle
Blackberry QNX SVP and general manager John Wall said. “Software is the driving force in next-generation automotive design. As cars become more data-driven and automated, they demand functional, secure and trusted in-vehicle software,”
Subaru Legacy and Outback model United States of America (USA) will be the first one to integrate HMI with new car models. The new HMI integrated vehicles will be available by 2020 in the market.
Blackberry and Jaguar joined hands together last week for developing new autonomous vehicles using Artificial Intelligence. To provide a range of capabilities to increase vehicle safety along with threat protection and predictive software maintenance in Jaguar Land Rover’s next-generation vehicle architecture, the joint venture will use Blackberry’s QNX operating system and Blackberry Cyclane. BlackBerry will also help Jaguar Land Rover to find potential security breach in connected and autonomous vehicles.
In its first-quarter BlackBerry incurred a loss of 35 million dollars since it’s inception into the field of Internet of things, Blackberry Cyclane and Licensing. “We expect [the Cylance integration] to be done within this fiscal year… It will be done meaning to be released as a product, so that’s reasonably record time. The next team that has launched is to look into putting Cylance AI technology on to the automotive platform, on the QNX. That’s going on very well, too. So I think, on the technological side, it’s very, very positive,” said John S. Chen, Chief Executive Officer of Blackberry.
