BlackBerry and Jaguar Land Rover have entered into a multi-year agreement to collaborate and develop technology for the automotive manufacturer’s next-generation vehicles.
As part of the agreement, BlackBerry will license its QNX and Certicom technology to Jaguar Land Rover, as well as assign a team of engineers to support in the development of new Electronic Control Unit (ECU) modules. The first ECU project will be a next-generation infotainment system.
BlackBerry currently provides OEMs around the world with state-of-the-art technology to protect and mitigate hardware, software, applications and end-to-end systems from cyberattacks.
BlackBerry’s pedigree in security and continued innovation has led to recent automotive design wins with Baidu, Delphi, Denso, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Visteon, and others.
Terms of the agreement are confidential and have not been public yet.
