BlackBerry teamed up with Desay SV to provide intelligent driving support for Xiaopeng P7

On August 25th, BlackBerry announced today that the autonomous driving domain controller IPU 03 jointly launched with Desay SV will be officially applied to Xiaopeng P7 and achieved mass production. The car is built by Chinese electric vehicle and technology company Xiaopeng Motors. Smart coupe with super long battery life. As the operating system adopted by IPU 03, QNX OS for Safety provides safety guarantee for the intelligent driving system of Xiaopeng P7.

Xiaopeng P7 is now available in China. The car is equipped with the Desay SV automatic driving domain controller-IPU 03, which can collect data through multiple sensors, calculate the vehicle’s own driving status and data information of the surrounding environment in real time, and realize 360-degree omni-directional sensing and fusion. Safe decision-making and control.

John Wall, Senior Vice President and Co-Head of BlackBerry Technology Solutions (BTS), said: “Desay SV has deep experience in the fields of smart cockpit, smart driving and connected services, which can be perfectly combined with the security of BlackBerry QNX to meet The diversified needs of the automotive industry in the transformation. I am very pleased that this BlackBerry technology can support the innovative intelligent driving system of Xiaopeng P7.”


According to reports, as the central processing unit for the entire vehicle to realize the automatic driving function, Desay SV IPU 03 meets the requirements of vehicle regulations, the operating system adopts QNX OS for Safety, and the MCU end adopts the AUTOSAR real-time operating system containing safety components. The hardware design is considered The backup redundancy design, as a whole, reaches the ISO 26262 functional safety ASIL D level, providing safety guarantee for Xiaopeng P7’s intelligent driving system; at the same time, Xavier’s computing power is up to 30 trillion times per second (30TOPS), which can process real-time data from vehicle radar, Mass data from cameras, lidars, and ultrasound systems, running algorithms for perception, positioning, planning, and control.

BlackBerry’s QNX OS for Safety is an operating system that enables embedded developers to build safety-critical systems. QNX OS for Safety is based on BlackBerry’s advanced and safe QNX Neutrino real-time operating system and has obtained ISO 26262 ASIL D and IEC 61508 SIL3 certification. Car manufacturers and embedded software developers in multiple industries can use pre-certified microkernel real-time operating systems to accelerate the development process and simplify certification by narrowing the scope.
