Delphi will use BlackBerry QNX for its self-driving platform

Delphi will use BlackBerry QNX for its self-driving platform”

In company news, BlackBerry (BBRY, BB.TO) rose nearly 9% on Wednesday, topping out at $9.94 a share after auto parts supplier Delphi Automotive ( DLPH ) today said it will use Blackberry's QNX operating software for the end-to-end system in an autonomous vehicle system scheduled to debut in 2019.

Delphi now has a turnkey self-driving system called CSLP that it intends to distribute to smaller automakers in 2019 for production in 2021.

Blackberry will provide operating software for the end-to-end system, which Delphi wants to sell to automakers and other companies. The BlackBerry QNX OS for Safety will facilitate Delphi's proprietary Ottomatika software algorithms and middleware, to enhance performance and safety. Delphi has split its business, spinning of its powertrain arm to focus primarily on autonomy and high-tech offerings; BlackBerry QNX has shifted from a focus on infotainment solutions to software that underpins and secures self-driving.

"We're witnessing a very fast push toward connected and autonomous vehicles, and it's necessitating a change to vehicle architecture", said John Wall, general manager of BlackBerry QNX. BlackBerry QNX's reliable OS helps guard against system malfunctions, malware, and cyber attacks by implementing a multi-level, policy-driven security model that incorporates best-in-class security technology from BlackBerry.
