BlackBerry Limited today announced that it has teamed up with Desay SV Automotive to launch a dual-screen virtual smart cabin domain controller to enable safer driving. Leveraging the QNX® Hypervisor and the QNX® Real-time Operating System (RTOS), the new technology is now available in leading Chinese automaker Chery’s Tiggo 8 Plus and Jetour X90 models.
Developed and built on the Chery T1X platform, the Tiggo 8 Plus is Chery’s flagship SUV, while the next generation Jetour X90 is the brand’s first Jetour vehicle equipped with the L2 intelligent automated driving system, providing drivers and passengers with a cinematic experience while on the road. Both models are equipped with Desay SV Automotive’s latest smart cabin domain controller, built on the QNX Hypervisor. The QNX Hypervisor provides the trusted reliability and performance of the 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, Senior Vice President 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.”
“Desay SV Automotive is committed to the integration and innovation of a new human-machine interaction experience in the age of intelligence. Through the creation of advanced smart cabin system solutions, BlackBerry’s high-quality, cost-effective products are enabling a safer driving experience with smart drive systems,” said Li Huang, General Manager of Technology Center at Desay SV Automotive. “We are excited to deepen our cooperation with BlackBerry to jointly drive innovation in the automotive industry.”
Desay SV Automotive is a leader in the application and mass production of a new generation of the smart cabin. Based on virtual instrument software architecture (VISA), Desay SV Automotive has achieved multi-ECU integration, combining the integrated processing technology of multiple displays and creating an industry-leading smart cabin solution.
