Innoviz Technologies, a leading provider of high-performance LiDAR sensors and perception software, announced it has selected the BlackBerry QNX Automotive Operating System for its LiDAR sensors. Specifically designed for safety-critical embedded systems, the BlackBerry QNX RTOS (Real Time Operating System), is used for InnovizOne, Innoviz’s first automotive-grade LiDAR, InnovizTwo, Innoviz’s next-generation low-cost LiDAR, and Innoviz’s hardware.
BlackBerry QNX is an embedded, pre-certified operating system designed for the automotive sector where functional safety embedded software is critical. The BlackBerry QNX platform enables Innoviz’s point cloud to provide the required safety levels and facilitates reliable, high-performance and competitively priced LiDAR solutions.
“Innoviz’s focus on safety and reliability includes the operating system level and shaped our decision to build our products, starting with InnovizOne, on the QNX platform. We are excited to continue the collaboration with BlackBerry, demonstrating safety and reliability coupled with leading performance in our next-generation InnovizTwo for the automotive OEM market,” said Omer Keilaf, Innoviz Co-Founder and CEO.
“BlackBerry QNX is more than an operating system.
