BlackBerry expands partnership with Baidu to power autonomous vehicles

Tuesday 26 January 2021 | 15:17 CET | News
BlackBerry expanded its strategic partnership with Baidu to power Baidu's HD maps with the BlackBerry QNX Neutrino Real-time Operating System (RTOS). In addition, Baidu's HD maps will be mass produced in the forthcoming GAC New Energy Aion models from the EV arm of GAC Group (Guangzhou Automobile Group). The milestones build on the company's January 2018 agreement to make BlackBerry QNX's ISO 26262 ASIL D certified operating system the foundation for Baidu's 'Apollo' autonomous driving open platform.
