To advance the deployment of its connected and autonomous vehicle technology, BlackBerry is expanding its partnership with LG.

Under the new agreement, LG will use BlackBerry QNX software and services to build digital consolidated cockpits, including infotainment systems, digital instrument clusters, and telematics systems for multiple OEMs.

The relationship builds on a 15-year history of collaboration between the two companies, and comes as BlackBerry reports revenues of $247 million USD for the quarter ended May 31, up from S$213 million USD in the same quarter last year.

“BlackBerry has been a trusted supplier to LG for nearly 15 years, providing flexible QNX-based software solutions that have helped them to deliver millions of high-quality systems to the world’s leading automakers,” said Kaivan Karimi, senior vice president and co-head of BlackBerry Technology Solutions.

“We are thrilled to build on and expand our relationship with them as part of our commitment to provide automakers with safety-certified, secure and reliable solutions and look forward to our teams working closely together to help produce cutting-edge cars for the future of [the] automotive market.”

For the new systems, BlackBerry will provide LG with QNX software, including its Software Development Platform, its safety operating system, the QNX Hypervisor, QNX acoustics middleware, QNX SDK for Apps and Media, as well as a variety of engineering services for system-level integration, performance optimisation, and solution validation.
