Automotive has signed a commercial partnership agreement with BlackBerry
to provide the operating system for its autonomous driving system.
Delphi and BlackBerry QNX will collaborate to bolster software
performance and safety in their operating system to advance autonomous
Delphi's fully integrated automated driving solution, Centralized
Sensing Localization and Planning (CSLP), to launch in 2019, provides
car manufacturers and Automated Mobility on Demand (AMoD) a best in
class turnkey automated driving solution. The BlackBerry QNX OS for
Safety will facilitate Delphi's proprietary Ottomatika software
algorithms and middleware, to enhance performance and safety.
"BlackBerry QNX will provide a robust software infrastructure for CSLP
and help advance Delphi's autonomous driving system," said Glen De Vos,
Delphi senior vice president and chief technology officer. "Safety in
high performance computing systems is paramount to a production ready
autonomous driving solution."
is no safety without security," said John Wall, SVP and GM of BlackBerry
QNX. "With cyberattacks and threats to connected vehicles on the rise,
it is imperative that auto manufacturers are provided with software that
is safety certified, reliable and secure. This is an area in which
BlackBerry QNX excels, and we look forward to the new opportunities this
expansion with Delphi will bring."
QNX SDP 7.0 provides high performance and enhanced kernel-level security
through an array of features, including microkernel architecture, file
encryption, adaptive time partitioning, a high availability framework,
anomaly detection, and multi-level policy-based access control.
BlackBerry QNX's reliable OS helps guard against system malfunctions,
malware, and cyber attacks by implementing a multi-level, policy-driven
security model that incorporates best-in-class security technology from
BlackBerry. The OS also offers a safety pedigree proven by certification
to ISO 26262 ASIL D (the highest level achievable) for automobiles and
to IEC 61508 SIL 3 for industrial automation systems, and by compliance
with IEC 62304 for life-critical Class III medical devices.
