  • Blackberry shares rise on Baidu agreement

"By integrating the BlackBerry QNX OS with the Apollo platform, we will enable carmakers to leap from prototype to production systems", said Li Zhenyu, general manager of Baidu's intelligent driving division.

Chinese search-engine giant Baidu Inc. has selected BlackBerry Ltd.to provide the safety operating system for the Apollo autonomous driving system, which is being developed in co-operation with several vehicle makers. BlackBerry will get to take advantage of Baidu's CarLife smartphone integration and its conversational artificial intelligence, DuerOS.

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. "These advancements paired with their high-definition maps and BlackBerry's safety-critical embedded software and expertise in security will be crucial ingredients for autonomous vehicles". For Baidu, it also means picking up a platform foundation for its open self-driving software project that has all the necessary vehicle industry safety certifications, and a proven track record.

Baidu says it has more than 70 partners in its Apollo program, including vehicle assembly companies, Tier 1 parts suppliers and technology startups.

Blackberry now provides OEMs around the world with state-of-the-art cybersecurity technology to protect and mitigate, hardware, software, applications and end-to-end systems from cyberattacks.

ON Semiconductor operates a responsive, reliable, world-class supply chain and quality program, a robust compliance and ethics program, and a network of manufacturing facilities, sales offices and design centers in key markets throughout North America, Europe and the Asia Pacific regions.
