BlackBerry forges partnership with Desay SV Automotive

To create immersive 'cinematic' driving experience for Chery's Tiggo 8 Plus and Jetour X90 models


BlackberryBlackBerry Limited has announced a partnership with Desay SV Automotive to launch a dual-screen virtual smart cabin domain controller to enable safer driving.

By making use of the QNX Hypervisor and the QNX Real-time Operating System (RTOS), the new technology is available in Chinese automaker Chery’s Tiggo 8 Plus and Jetour X90 models.

The Tiggo 8 Plus, developed and built on the Chery T1X platform, is Chery’s flagship SUV, while Jetour X90 is the brand’s first Jetour vehicle equipped with the L2 intelligent automated driving system, offering drivers and passengers with a cinematic experience while on the road.

Both Tiggo 8 Plus and Jetour X90 are equipped with Desay SV Automotive’s latest smart cabin domain controller, built on the QNX Hypervisor.

The QNX Hypervisor offers the trusted reliability and performance of the QNX Neutrino RTOS, and also allows multiple operating systems to safely co-exist on the same system-on-a-chip (SoC).

Thanks to the QNX Hypervisor, developers can partition and isolate safety-critical and infotainment systems, thus making sure the continued function of critical systems even if other components fail.

According to John Wall, Senior Vice President and Co-Head of BlackBerry Technology Solutions, “Thanks to its advanced technology and rapid application abilities, Desay SV Automotive is well positioned to provide a smart cabin with a multi-sensory immersive experience.”

He added: “Augmented with secure and reliable BlackBerry QNX technology, together we can address the diverse needs of an auto industry that is undergoing rapid transformation.

We are pleased that BlackBerry’s technology can provide support to the innovative smart cabin of Chery’s Tiggo 8 Plus and Jetour X90 and look forward to providing the automotive industry with a more integrated and powerful smart cabin, as well as additional smart drive solutions in the future.”

Li Huang, General Manager of Technology Center at Desay SV Automotive, said, “Desay SV Automotive is committed to the integration and innovation of a new human-machine interaction experience in the age of intelligence. Through the creation of advanced smart cabin system solutions, BlackBerry’s high-quality, cost-effective products are enabling a safer driving experience with smart drive systems.”

Huang added: “We are excited to deepen our cooperation with BlackBerry to jointly drive innovation in the automotive industry.”
