Blackberry is Partnering with Subsidiary of Bosch for Development of a Safety Critical Platform

Blackberry QNX which is a subsidiary of Blackberry Limited, is co-developing a safety critical platform with ETAS GmbH for next generation vehicles

Germany: ETAS GmbH, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Robert and Blackberry QNX are jointly working on development of a safety critical platform and its associated tools, which will be used in the next generation autonomous and connected vehicles.

The software platform will be based on AUTOSAR adaptive standards and is expected to lay the foundation for high performance and secure electronic control units or ECUs. Moreover, the software platform is compliant with the ISO 26262:2018 standard and will combine POSIX compliant and safety-certified real time operating system from Blackberry with ETAS’ expertise in AUTOSAR adaptive standards.

Senior VP of Blackberry QNX stated that, “Collaborating with ETAS, a subsidiary of Bosch, will help to grow leadership in software-defined vehicles, and serve as a catalyst for the automotive industry to build highly-secure connected and autonomous vehicles.”

According to TechSci Research, partnerships & acquisitions have always been Blackberry’s key growth strategies. In November, the company started providing QNX software as the foundation for electric vehicles manufactured by Hyundai Motor Group.

QNX software comes in-built in vehicles from several automobile manufacturers and the recent partnership for software platform solution is expected to play crucial role towards shaping this industry as the new platform can then be integrated with software from different sources and application domains, consequently, providing solution in complexities for the adoption of connected, autonomous and electrified mobility.
