BlackBerry Limited today announced Chinese electric carmaker WM Motor will embed BlackBerry’s QNX Neutrino Realtime Operating System (RTOS) and other BlackBerry QNX software products within the company’s third-generation SUVs.
As part of the agreement, WM Motor will use a range of BlackBerry QNX software and services including the QNX Platform for Digital Cockpits and QNX Hypervisor for Safety to ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the software within the forthcoming production run of its third-generation SUVs.
Since going into mass production just over a year ago, the company now has over 20,000 cars on the road manufactured out of its facility in Wenzhou.

BlackBerry’s pedigree in safety, security, and continued innovation has led to its QNX technology being used and trusted by automotive OEMs and tier ones in their advanced driver assistance, digital instrument clusters, connectivity modules, handsfree, and infotainment systems.
