Leveraging the QNX® Neutrino® real-time operating system (RTOS) and QNX® hypervisor to create an intelligent digital cockpit that delivers a more personalized and interactive driving experience, the collaboration marks a new milestone after the the two companies’ agreement earlier this year to launch a pilot project integrating BlackBerry IVY™ into PATEO’s service-oriented architecture (SOA) solutions with a major Chinese automaker’s all-electric model range.
Ken (Yilun) YING, Founder and Chairman of PATEO, said, “BlackBerry is a market leader in embedded software for automobiles and has evolved from designing secure mobile phones that changed the world to innovations at the forefront of the software-defined vehicle space that are revolutionizing how cars are designed and driven. The latest cooperation between PATEO and BlackBerry will provide drivers and passengers with a safer, more efficient and personalized driving experience while ensuring system safety and reliability. We look forward to deepening our work together and building on our early successes with automakers to usher in the next generation of intelligent vehicle experiences.”
“As the market leader in automotive security-certified embedded software, BlackBerry is committed to providing a safe, reliable and secure software foundation for our partners,” said Dhiraj Handavice-president, Asia Pacific region at BlackBerry. “Building on BlackBerry QNX technology, we are delighted that PATEO’s cutting-edge intelligent cockpit has been so warmly embraced by Chinese and global automakers, allowing more and more drivers around the world to get a glimpse of first hand of the future of technology-based in-car experience is headed.”
PATEO’s Intelligent Digital Cockpit uses multi-modal technology to support interactions across multiple displays, including the cluster and center console, while providing the driver with a more natural human-computer interaction (HCI) experience through a AI-based voice assistant. Augmented by a rich ecosystem of apps containing multimedia and navigation options, the cockpit offers deep customization capabilities to meet the user’s diverse driving needs.
Combining the high computing power of the Qualcomm Snapdragon SA8155 processor alongside the QNX Neutrino RTOS and QNX hypervisor, PATEO CONNECT+ is both flexible and scalable. BlackBerry QNX software also enables PATEO to consolidate multiple systems with mixed criticality and different operating environments onto a single powerful hardware and software platform, reducing both initial development and long-term ownership costs while guaranteeing the highest standards of functional safety and security, providing an enhanced, unified and integrated user experience for all passengers.
