Hyundai Autron has selected BlackBerry QNX to power its next-generation advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving software platform. Hyundai Autron, a subsidiary of South Korea’s largest automobile manufacturer Hyundai Motor Group, is a research and development company specialising in electronic control software and automotive semiconductors.

Hyundai Autron will use the QNX OS for Safety, a software solution that provides the reliable foundation necessary for building competitive automotive and mission-critical systems in a cost-effective and safe manner.

QNX OS offers an advanced and secure embedded operating system developed for use in safety and mission-critical applications, such as ADAS and autonomous driving. The secured ADAS and autonomous driving software platform is expected to be commercialised by Hyundai Autron’s OEM customers.

“We are excited to work with Hyundai Autron to provide next-generation automobiles with a secured ADAS and autonomous driving software platform,” said John Chen, Executive Chairman and CEO, BlackBerry.

“Functional safety and security are top priorities in connected and autonomous vehicles. BlackBerry QNX software meets the ISO 26262 ASIL-D level of certification which is the most stringent safety classification for the automotive market.”

With proprietary technology, Hyundai Autron has developed powertrain control units, transmission control units, and eco-friendly control units as well as body and chassis control units incorporating a standard software platform (AUTOSAR, Hyundai Motor standard software platform) and high-tech control logic. The company has also been leading semiconductor technology, which is a key part of automotive electronic controls.

“Hyundai Autron develops the Hyundai Motor standard software platform based on the international AUTOSAR standard,” said Dae-Heung Moon, CEO at Hyundai Autron.

“Powered by BlackBerry QNX technology, together we will deliver ADAS and autonomous driving software platforms that will set a new standard for the automotive industry.”

BlackBerry will demonstrate what this new standard looks like when it showcases the QNX OS for Safety at CES in Las Vegas in January 2020.
