Lidar developer Innoviz Technologies has selected the BlackBerry QNX Automotive Operating System for its sensors.
Specifically designed for safety-critical embedded systems, the BlackBerry RTOS (Real Time Operating System), is being used on the InnovizOne, Innoviz’s first automotive-grade lidar; InnovizTwo, its next-generation low-cost sensor; and other supporting hardware.
BlackBerry QNX is an embedded, pre-certified operating system designed for the automotive sector where functional safety embedded software is critical.
“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,” remarked Omer Keilaf, Innoviz co-founder and CEO.
