BlackBerry Partner BiTECH To Build Safe, Reliable Digital LCD Instrument Cluster

BlackBerry Limited today announced that its QNX® Neutrino® Realtime Operating System (RTOS), has been adopted in a new digital LCD cluster jointly developed with BiTECH Automotive (Wuhu) Co., Ltd.

The digital instrument cluster is being installed in Changan Automobile’s new SUV, the UNI-K, which has entered mass production, providing a personalized user experience for drivers while ensuring the safety, security and reliability of the SUV’s critical systems.

The Changan UNI-K is a new mid-to-high-end SUV which features an advanced smart driving assistance program and a smart cockpit with an Interactive Monitoring System (IMS).

The LCD digital instrument cluster comprises three parts, with the left section displaying tire pressure and door conditions; the middle section highlighting the vehicle’s speed, augmented reality real-view navigation, a multimedia interface and vehicle status; and the right section comprising a digital rear-view mirror, the tachometer, and the fuel gauge.

The variety of information displayed by the LCD digital instrument cluster ensures it adequately meets the diversified needs of consumers.

Powered by the QNX Neutrino RTOS, the Changan UNI-K’s LCD digital instrument cluster provides a comprehensive, multi-level, policy-driven security model incorporating best-in-class security technologies from BlackBerry that help guard against system malfunctions, malware and cyber security breaches.

The BlackBerry QNX Neutrino RTOS supports both the 64-bit ARMv8 computing platform and Intel x86-64 architecture, while ISO 26262 ASIL D certification by TÜV Rheinland ensures that OEMs and manufacturers can utilize the QNX Neutrino RTOS to build connected cars with proven safety and reliable protection performance.
