BlackBerry and Delphi Automotive Partner for Automated Driving Platform
BlackBerry has developed a partnership with Delphi Automotive for developing a turnkey automated driving platform.
Delphi Automotive gave a statement on Wednesday that it’ll make use of the BlackBerry’s QNX OS in its self-driving car for hosting and securing its proprietary software. In 2019, the end-to-end platform is supposed to be launched.
The Delphi’s automated driving platform has been using the Mobileye’s EyeQ chip for real-time mapping tech and sensor processing. The platform will also incorporate a software from Ottomatika, a Carnegie Mellon Univ startup which Delphi bought in 2015, for acting as the vehicle’s brain.
The primary motive for the partnership with BlackBerry is likely to focus on adding a cybersecurity layer and to ensure safe operations of the platform.
Delphi is also working with Intel, BMW, Continental and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles for joint development of the platform to act as a system integrator. This will ensure the tech can be made useful in the vehicles that are built by any carmaker.
