BlackBerry QNX and MARELLI China team up to to Power Major Chinese Vehicle Brands

BlackBerry and MARELLI Electronics China today announced a strategic collaboration to integrate QNX Platform for Digital Cockpits in MARELLI’s Electronics eCockpit and Digital Cluster solution. The integrated solution is expected to be commercialised by a wide range of MARELLI’s Chinese OEM customers.

By leveraging the QNX Platform for Digital Cockpits, MARELLI’s sophisticated eCockpit and Digital Cluster solution enables automakers to deliver an in-vehicle experience that mirrors the personalized and seamless connected experience that customers have in their home or office, while ensuring that critical systems are safe, secure and reliable.

“It’s a privilege to work with MARELLI to deliver this innovative solution with a view to providing the kind of in-car experience that drivers want, with the safety, security, and reliability they need,” said Kaivan Karimi, Senior Vice President and Co-Head of BlackBerry Technology Solutions, BlackBerry.

“Together we will enable leading Chinese automakers to provide customers with access to the latest applications that consumers want while simultaneously securing and sandboxing the infotainment portion of the digital cockpit so that if an app crashes, or its security is compromised or needs to be updated, it will not impact mission critical-driving functions.”

The expanded relationship builds on a solid foundation between MARELLI Electronics China and BlackBerry, who since 2016 have used the QNX Hypervisor for Safety and QNX Software Development Platform (SDP) 7.0 to develop embedded cockpit systems which have been deployed with four major Chinese automakers.”

“New automotive technologies are evolving faster than ever in the competitive global auto market,” said Wisea Wu, General Manager, MARELLI Electronics China.

“The partnership with BlackBerry aligns with our strategies and allows us to develop next-generation, safe and reliable digital cockpits for our customers, which we believe will help Chinese automakers to boost the security and connectivity of their vehicles.”

The QNX Platform for Digital Cockpits is a leading-edge, fully-integrated, software solution that combines BlackBerry’s safety-certified QNX Hypervisor for Safety, QNX Platform for Instrument Clusters, QNX CAR Platform for Infotainment, and a secure Android implementation.

It enables automakers to offer a reliable and secure QNX-based digital instrument cluster and infotainment system that provides access to the latest Android-based applications from a single ECU.

BlackBerry’s full suite of automotive offerings will be demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from January 7-10, 2020, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Visit BlackBerry at Booth #7515 in the North Hall.
