Jaguar Land Rover and communications specialist BlackBerry have signed a partnership agreement to help develop the next generation of connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs).
BlackBerry will provide the auto maker with several of its flagship software products including its BlackBerry QNX operating system and BlackBerry Cylance cybersecurity offering. Jaguar Land Rover will also leverage BlackBerry’s Cybersecurity Consulting services to identify security vulnerabilities in CAVs across the full software library used in a vehicle.
Prof. Sir Ralf D Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover, said, “Jaguar Land Rover and BlackBerry share a common objective in bringing the most intelligent vehicles to reality. I am delighted that our partnership with BlackBerry continues to go from strength-to-strength, a company whose technology innovations uniquely address the expanding safety needs of the automotive industry.”
John Chen, executive chairman and CEO, BlackBerry, added, “BlackBerry is a trusted partner of the automotive industry because of our heritage and innovations in secure communications. We are pleased to be Jaguar Land Rover’s chosen partner for safety-certified technology, as we advance AI and machine learning technologies to transform automotive safety.”
