TTTech Auto and BlackBerry have extended their partnership to cover software defined vehicles (SDVs).

The deal will see the native integration of the latest Blackberry QNX Operating System (OS) 8.0 with TTTech Auto scheduling software in a single safety-certified product for SDV development.

This will enhance performance and enable better utilization of the underlying semiconductors in complex and highly mission-critical environments such as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in SDVs.

The joint product from this co-operation will support the scalability of architectures, from zonal to domain controllers and central compute, as well as from fail-safe to fail-operational solutions. By leveraging best-in-class scheduling algorithms, the design phase is simplified and testing efforts reduced, allowing users to modify their configuration with just one click and achieve functional results consistently. The product is pre-certified to support relevant safety standards (ISO 26262 up to ASIL D) and security standards (ISO 21434). It will be available for projects end of Q2/2024 and fully certified in Q4/2024.

The initial partnership was signed in June 2022, and TTTech Auto and BlackBerry have integrated the QNX Neutrino Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) and TTTech Auto’s safe vehicle software platform, MotionWise into joint products that already in production

“The combination of rapid advancements in silicon chip performance, increasing system integration and interdependency, and growing software complexity is creating a pressure cooker environment for SDV manufacturers,” said John Wall, SVP and head of QNX at BlackBerry. “When safety and security are paramount, there is no room for compromise. That’s where our partnership with TTTech Auto excels. It will deliver a linchpin product that supports scalable architectures and complex interactions needed by SDVs on our trusted safe and secure QNX foundation.”

“Developing SDVs makes the old days of auto design look like child’s play,” said Stefan Poledna, CTO and Co-Founder of TTTech Auto. “SDVs of the future require a system-wide approach that embraces the “4 S’s” of system, safety, security and software integration. In partnership with QNX, we’re helping overcome a major hurdle by offering a pre-integrated and pre-certified solution that ticks all of the boxes to support innovation and advancement in SDVs.”

TTTech Auto was founded in 2018 by TTTech Group and technology leaders Audi, Infineon and Samsung to build a global, safe vehicle software platform for automated and autonomous driving. In 2022, the company raised $285m (€250m) from Aptiv and Audi in its latest funding round.
