BlackBerry has inaugurated a research hub in Canada, to work on a platform for autonomous vehicles. Called the BlackBerry QNX Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Centre (AVIC), the Ottawa hub will use BlackBerry’s QNX operating platform, already being employed by automobile manufacturers for in-car infotainment units, to develop the framework on which car makers can build the algorithms for autonomous, self-driving vehicles. The AVIC research hub will also reportedly partner with Renesas for processing power, and PolySync and the University of Waterloo will also come together for the first experimental autonomous vehicle built on BlackBerry’s platform.
