The Chinese behemoth has inked a deal with BlackBerry to make QNX the heart of its autonomous driving open platform, Apollo.

He added that the integration of QNX with its automotive "Apollo" platform "will enable carmakers to leap from prototype to production systems".

On that matter, BlackBerry reps have already revealed that Baidu will be using BlackBerry's QNX Hypervisor 2.0 software in its self-driving open platform - which has been dubbed "Apollo".

Although the deal is aimed at supporting automotive OEMs worldwide, China in particular is expected to be a major market for advanced and autonomous driving features.

Li Zhenyu, General Manager of Intelligent Driving Group, Baidu said his company aims to accelerate the development of fully autonomous vehicle production, with a focus on safety and security.

It announced last month that it will partner with Japan-based Denso Corp., one of Toyota's technology suppliers, to work with Intel to develop an integrated platform for co-ordinating various human-machine interfaces. The project was named after the historic lunar landing program to illustrate its scale and complexity.

BlackBerry and Baidu have announced a collaboration through which the Canadian and Chinese companies will team up for a number of connected and autonomous vehicle initiatives.
