Karma Automotive to showcase BlackBerry QNX technology at CES 2019

Karma Automotive will showcase how BlackBerry’s QNX technology is used to safeguard its Revero luxury electric vehicle and hint at additional security and management systems that could be incorporated into future products during the automaker’s first appearance at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Karma Automotive designs, engineers, assembles and markets luxury electric vehicles, all from its Southern California base of operations. Founded in 2014 and employing nearly 1,000 people worldwide, Karma Automotive is committed to elevating and growing the luxury mobility experience for its customers and draws on global relationships and technology partners to achieve this.

Named Green Car Journal’s 2018 Luxury Green Car of the Year, Karma Revero is a luxury electric vehicle powered by dual electric motors that embodies the company’s goals of offering leading automotive design, technology, customisation and an outstanding customer experience.

“Karma’s business and product plan is driven in part by collaborating with partners like BlackBerry whose expertise help us accelerate product development and differentiation,” said Karma CEO Dr. Lance Zhou.

“Karma was among BlackBerry’s first automotive partners for cybersecurity management, and we’re looking forward to showcasing how we use the technology to enhance Revero. We’ll also have some proof-of-concepts using futuristic technology that may ultimately become part of the Karma experience.”

BlackBerry QNX powers the Karma Revero Infotainment and Digital Instrument Cluster. With the power of BlackBerry QNX, Karma is at the forefront of Firmware Over-the-Air updates and how it manages cybersecurity by leveraging encryption via BlackBerry Certicom.

Karma also uses QNX Acoustics and other BlackBerry technologies for Active Noise Reduction and Echo Cancellation and other product enhancements.

Among show highlights for automotive enthusiasts are concept cars, connected cars, autonomous drive, artificial intelligence and robotics.
