BlackBerry QNX to Power WM Motor’s W6 All-Electric SUV

WM Motor is an emerging leader in the Chinese electric passenger vehicle market

Chinese electric carmaker WM Motor has selected BlackBerry QNX to power its advanced W6 SUV model, using the QNX Neutrino Realtime Operating System (RTOS), QNX Software Development Platform (SDP 7.0), and QNX Hypervisor.

The deployment will enhance the safety of the mass-produced, all-electric W6, marking another milestone since the companies announced in December 2019 that BlackBerry® QNX® software had been selected for use in WM Motor’s third-generation of SUVs.

Armed with the cloud computing power of handling over 1 million Tera operations per second (TOPS), the W6 is China’s first mass-produced vehicle that can autonomously perform specific parking manoeuvres. The model features brand-new electronic architecture and is powered by advanced silicon computer technology, a 5G base band and an autonomous driving domain controller.

The advanced digital cockpit of the W6 has significantly shortened the information processing time and expanded the dimensions of information capture that allow the system to keenly perceive the subtle needs of the users in the cockpit. This not only ensures safer and more efficient journeys, but also provides a comfortable driving experience for all passengers.

Combining the latest in chip technology with the highly reliable QNX Neutrino RTOS and QNX Hypervisor, the W6 allows for design flexibility and scalability to consolidate multiple systems with mixed criticality and different operating environments onto a single hardware platform, reducing both the initial development and long-term costs of ownership while providing the highest standards of functional safety and security.

“BlackBerry’s heritage of innovation in operating system technology and security has made it a trusted partner for the automotive industry,” said Dhiraj Handa, VP, Asia Pacific region.

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with WM Motor as they start to deploy the next generation of EV vehicles in the marketplace with advanced intelligence, functional safety, connectivity and security by leveraging the latest BlackBerry QNX technology platform.”

Going forward, WM Motor plans to broaden its reach to develop additional driverless scenarios such as open road advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), bringing the smart technology-enabled mobility experience to mass-market customers and providing truly driverless vehicles for all families.

“As a forerunner of China’s new energy vehicle market, WM Motor is committed to developing and delivering a safe, high-quality, reliable and affordable mobility experience for our customers,” said Freeman Shen, Founder, Chairman and CEO of WM Motor.

“Thanks to BlackBerry QNX’s outstanding safety, cybersecurity and reliability, we are able to focus on creating an extraordinary driving experience for our customers without compromising system safety and reliability.”
