Auditing and inspection services company TÜV Rheinland has subjected the Blackberry QNX Hypervisor 2.0 for Safety to detailed tests and issued a safety certificate according to the ISO 26262 functional safety standard. Using this Hypervisor, developers can thus partition and isolate safety-critical systems such as body domain control from non-safety critical systems (e.g. infotainment), ensuring that critical systems are isolated and are safely managed in the event of system failure.
With this certification, automotive OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, chip manufacturers and software companies can develop safety-critical functions running under the QNX hypervisor. BlackBerry QNX is typically used by top automakers for advanced driver assistance, digital instrument clusters, connectivity modules, handsfree, and infotainment systems.
