What Qualcomm and BlackBerry want to provide cars? Source:

Qualcomm and BlackBerry talked about his new partnership, which will involve the automotive industry. Today, digital technologies are increasingly used in cars. It is not surprising that technology companies have something that can be used to transport concentrate their efforts on improving their technology, including combines.

Qualcomm Technologies and BlackBerry announced their new strategic partnership to work together on the development and production of new automotive platforms for a new generation of vehicles. Under this agreement both companies will work on optimizing the number of hardware platforms, Qualcomm in conjunction with software QNX to BlackBerry for various applications. More new message has been reviewed by Mihai Matei (Matei Mihai) on the resource androidheadlines.com in the context of the details considered by the resource zdnet.com and cnet.com.

The Two technology giants also came to an agreement about the optimization software BlackBerry OTA and Secure Credential Management Services (SCM) to use with some modems Qualcomm Snapdragon processor to ensure high-performance car platforms, thus, to save time and reduce costs.

QNX is a Unix-like operating system, first introduced in the early 1980-ies of the Quantum Software System. This operating system was eventually acquired by RIM BlackBerry in 2010. Later it was used by the canadian vendor of mobile devices to create the operating system BlackBerry Tablet OS for the PlayBook tablet. It plaftorm was a QNX based mobile software BlackBerry 10, which was used in the canadian phone vendor. And that she will maybe find a new use in the automotive industry in combination with the modems, and wireless technology company Qualcomm.

Although the platform is no longer used by the canadian company with mobile devices, QNX is continuing to find application in automotive transport, as well as in other areas. The newest version of the operating system today it is released in January 2017 7.0 QNX SDP (Software Development Platform), characterized by the support for C++14, and ARM, as well as 32-bit and 64-bit platforms from Intel.

Part of the new agreement between the companies Qualcomm and BlackBerry is also possible that the two are known to every connoisseur of high technology companies will work on optimizing technologies created by Qualcomm for their application with software QNX. The end result of collaboration of technology companies may be the use of this combination for various applications in the automotive industry.

Since starting to develop an unmanned vehicle that leaders of industry have a lot of work in various fields, to create a safe and efficient technology to transport the new generation. It should be noted that this chip maker is not the first time he started working on the future of unmanned vehicles in partnership with another technological giant. After all, earlier this year a similar partnership with Qualcomm and LG Electronics it was announced and probably in the future there will be reports of many such initiatives under consideration.

The Agreement between the two companies is not exclusive. QNX for BlackBerry remains at the core of its software strategy and Internet of things. The importance of this only increased when the priorities of the company shifted from hardware to software. The platform allows developers to create apps for automobiles.

It Should be noted that Qualcomm and BlackBerry have been partners for more than a decade. Primarily the cooperation of these famous technology companies were put to use by BlackBerry Qualcomm chipsets in their mobile devices. When in June this year, the BlackBerry company was represented by its QNX Hypervisor 2.0, Qualcomm has taken the decision to use the system in some of its developments, including the automotive platform Snapdragon 820A. Thus, we are talking about further expansion of cooperation between the companies.

To date, the automotive sector is one of the most important for technology companies. For BlackBerry her interest in the automotive industry is an important component of strategy of transformation of the company and the efforts of the head of the company John Chen (John Chen) for the transition from creating products focused on consumers, sales, "business to business" ("business-to-business").
