Scania selects BlackBerry QNX to provide operating system

Scania AB, a provider of transport solutions, including trucks and buses, has selected BlackBerry QNX to provide the safety certified operating system (OS) and hypervisor for its computing platforms.
Scania will be using BlackBerry QNX software in three Electronic Control Units (ECU) including its digital cockpit, telematics, and central high-performance coordinator platform, to deliver a secure foundation for software to be developed upon.

“Using a single OS and hypervisor for high performance systems in the truck has huge economical and technical benefits to our operations and allows us to bring customer value to market quicker and more efficiently,” Mikael Adelsberg, senior vice president of Connected, Autonomous and Embedded Systems at Scania, said.

BlackBerry said more than 175 million vehicles globally have deployed BlackBerry QNX.
