QNX launches new operating system for automotive safety

QNX Software Systems, a subsidiary of Blackberry Co., Ltd. and a global leader in automotive electronics software platforms, today announced the QNX® Automotive Security Operating System 1.0. The new operating system is based on QNX technology proven in many safety-critical systems around the world, and is growing for digital dashboards, heads-up displays, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and other in-vehicle applications with functional safety requirements. Demand.

The QNX Automotive Safety Operating System 1.0 can be used in systems that meet the ISO 26262 standard up to ASIL D, which is the highest level of safety defined in the standard. Certification for functional safety standards provides independent verification that when products are used in passenger car electrical, electronic and software-based systems, they provide a very high level of reliability and reduce risk.

Grant Courville, Director of Product Management at QNX Software Systems, said: "The QNX software system has a 30-year history of safety-critical systems. This experience is complemented by our proven capabilities in safety certification and the success of software in millions of vehicles. , making QNX an ideal operating system partner for automotive companies that build systems based on ISO 26262 ASIL requirements."

Free from interference

The popularity of digital instrument panels and ADAS systems must be based on the economic production methods of the vehicle manufacturers. QNX Operating System 1.0 significantly reduces the cost of system development and certification by allowing critical security functions (such as engine failure warnings) to run on the same hardware module as non-critical security functions (such as RPM).

To achieve this integration, the operating system provides fine-grained process isolation and memory protection, protecting critical security components from interference from other components. It also supports QNX Adaptive Time Partitioning, a unique technology that further avoids interference by protecting critical security components from CPU cycles by other components.

Operating system voiceover

Since ISO 26262 is a relatively new standard, the certification process is still unknown for most car manufacturers and automotive Tier 1 suppliers. This is a long and arduous task that can lead to serious product delays if not properly deployed. QNX Software Systems not only provides the QNX® automotive safety operating system, but also helps these companies address complex system-level certifications through valuable experience gained from successful certification programs. These include the certification of the IEC 61508 Functional Safety Standard, which is the basis of ISO 26262.

Growing demand

As more and more cars are equipped with digital dashboards and ADAS functions such as lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, etc., the need for ISO 26262 certification is increasing. The complexity of the system with the ultimate goal of self-driving will only make this demand growing. In addition, the boundaries between in-vehicle systems are blurring: infotainment systems are beginning to include some ADAS capabilities, leading to the need for platforms that support both safety-critical and non-safety-critical functions.

Thilo Koslowski, vice president and head of automotive operations at Gartner, said: "The free development of advanced driver assistance and applications will continue to expand into all vehicle segments in this era and will usher in the arrival of smart cars and self-driving cars. The cornerstones are cost-effective software and hardware solutions that can be deployed quickly and reliably."

Latest products

ISO 26262 certification is the latest certified product of the QNX software system. To date, the company's products and processes have achieved IEC 61508 SIL 3 (Functional Safety), EAL 4 + (Safety) General Standard, POSIX pse52 Real-Time Controller Specification (Portability and Real-Time Performance), ISO 9001:2008 (Management system) and in accordance with IEC 62304 (medical device software).

The QNX Automotive Safety Operating System 1.0 certification will include validation of the QNX toolchain components, making it easy for customers to use them in the 26262 project.


The QNX Automotive Safety Operating System 1.0 will be available in the third quarter of 2014.
