BlackBerry Limited and Nobo Technologies announced that the advanced digital cockpit controller platform developed by Nobo was built on the BlackBerry QNX® Neutrino® Realtime Operating System (RTOS) and QNX® Hypervisor has now entered mass production. This Digital Cockpit Controller (DCC) platform has been selected to power Great Wall Motors’ next-generation SUV – Haval H6S and offers customers a more personalized and engaging driving experience.
As the flagship SUV model of Great Wall Motors, the Haval H6 has long been a popular choice for customers in China. The latest model features a new and modern hatchback design along with Nobo’s smart DCC platform that integrates features such as Windshield Head-Up Display (W-HUD), In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and cluster display, 360 degrees Around View Monitor (AVM), Driver Monitoring System (DMS), occupant monitoring systems (OMS), Voice Recognition and Navigation to allow for an interactive and comfortable driving experience.
Armed with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8155 processor and the highly reliable BlackBerry QNX Neutrino RTOS and QNX Hypervisor, the new Haval H6S allows for scalability and flexibility in its DCC design. The ability to consolidate multiple systems with mixed-criticality and different operating environments onto a single hardware platform, effectively reduces both the model’s initial development and long-term costs of ownership, while still ensuring industry-leading safety and security.
“BlackBerry has deep expertise and a strong track record in providing leading-edge software platform solutions that deliver safety, reliability and security that make us a trusted partner for the automotive industry,” said Dhiraj Handa, VP, Asia Pacific region at BlackBerry. “We are pleased to support and partner with Nobo Technologies as they start to deploy the next generation of their innovative DCC platform into mass production vehicles.”
“Nobo Technologies has full stack R&D capability and specializes in continuously developing leading edge digital cockpit hardware and software solutions that deliver a superior user experience,” said Li Zhezhe, Nobo Vice General Manager. “The QNX software platform provides functional safety, reliability, security and real-time performance that supports Nobo’s vision for a smart, secure and safe DCC platform for the next generation of vehicle launches in China and beyond.”
