百度黑莓宣布联手搞自动驾驶,QNX系统成Apollo平台基础

1月3日,百度Apollo项目和黑莓展开了合作,黑莓的股价应声上涨了近13%。

  百度和黑莓的合作领域在车联网和自动驾驶,据美国科技媒体VentureBeat报道,这两家公司已经签署合作意向书,计划将黑莓的QNX系统作为百度之前宣布的Apollo自动驾驶平台的基础。

  作为此项合作的一部分,百度表示将把自家的很多软件产品整合到QNX Car信息娱乐平台中,包括将联网汽车与智能手机整合的CarLife、语音互动系统DuerOS和高清地图。

  “我们希望为汽车厂商提供一条清晰而快速的路径,使之发展全自动汽车,并且将安全作为头等大事。”百度智能驾驶事业部总经理李振宇说,“通过把黑莓QNX OS与Apollo平台整合,我们将让汽车厂商可以从原型直接跨越到生产系统。我们将共同为无人驾驶、智能联网和智能交通系统开发技术和商业生态系统。”

  百度早在2016年就在硅谷开设了专门的无人驾驶汽车部门。一年后,该公司宣布推出Apollo开源平台,希望在2018年上路测试,2020年在高速公路上实现全自动驾驶。去年7月,百度宣布了该项目的首批制造合作伙伴,并表示Apollo将成为“无人驾驶行业的Android”。该公司现在又宣布从科技、汽车和人工智能领域吸引了数十家合作伙伴,包括福特、英特尔、英伟达和微软。

  黑莓2010年从哈曼国际手中收购QNX。虽然这个与Unix相似的操作系统被应用在很多移动设备上,并且成为了黑莓10系统的基础,但黑莓在移动硬件领域的衰落还是使得QNX向汽车领域开拓市场。

  福特在2014年放弃了微软Auto系统,转而采用QNX,这两家公司还在几年后扩大了合作范围。

  2016年末,黑莓在渥太华开设了自己的无人驾驶汽车研发中心。该公司后来与汽车行业巨头德尔福签订协议,在后者的自动驾驶平台上使用QNX。高通、电装、伟世通等公司也都与黑莓就QNX展开合作。

  黑莓一段时间以来在大举押注汽车市场和无人驾驶技术。但能与全球顶尖人工智能公司百度合作对它来说仍然堪称一大胜利,可以帮助其从硬件公司转型为软件企业。

  “与百度合作可以让我们探索多个汽车子系统的整合机会,包括ADAS、信息娱乐、网关和云服务。”黑莓QNX高级副总裁兼总经理约翰·沃尔(John Wall)说,“百度在人工智能和深度学习领域取得了巨大进步。这些进步,再加上高清地图,以及黑莓安全性嵌入式软件和在安全领域的专业知识,都将成为无人驾驶汽车的关键因素。”

BlackBerry and Baidu Partnering to Accelerate Connected and Autonomous Vehicle Technology

Jan 3, 2018

WATERLOO, ONTARIO and BEIJING, CHINA–(Jan. 3, 2018) – BlackBerry Limited (NYSE:BB)(TSX:BB) and Baidu, Inc. (NASDAQ:BIDU) announced today that the two companies will collaborate to accelerate the deployment of connected and autonomous vehicle technology for automotive OEMs and suppliers worldwide.

The companies have signed a statement of intent to make BlackBerry QNX’s industry-leading ISO26262 ASIL-D certified safety operating system (OS) the foundation for Baidu’s Apollo autonomous driving open platform. Also, BlackBerry and Baidu will work together to integrate Baidu’s CarLife, the leading smartphone integration software for connected cars in China, as well as its conversational AI system DuerOS, and high definition maps to run on the BlackBerry QNX Car (Infotainment) Platform.

“BlackBerry QNX has established itself as the OS platform for safety-certified production-based systems,” said Li Zhenyu, General Manager of Intelligent Driving Group, Baidu. “We aim to provide automakers with a clear and fast path to fully autonomous vehicle production, with safety and security as top priorities. By integrating the BlackBerry QNX OS with the Apollo platform, we will enable carmakers to leap from prototype to production systems. Together, we will work toward a technological and commercial ecosystem for autonomous driving, intelligent connectivity, and intelligent traffic systems.”

“Joining forces with Baidu will enable us to explore integration opportunities for multiple vehicle subsystems including ADAS, infotainment, gateways, and cloud services,” said John Wall, Senior Vice President and GM of BlackBerry QNX. “Baidu has made tremendous strides in Artificial Intelligence and deep learning. These advancements paired with their high-definition maps and BlackBerry’s safety-critical embedded software and expertise in security will be crucial ingredients for autonomous vehicles.”

Announced by Baidu this past April, Apollo is an open platform that provides a comprehensive, secure, and reliable solution that consists of cloud services, an open software stack, and reference hardware and vehicle platforms. It supports all major features and functions of an autonomous vehicle. Apollo has now attracted over 70 global partners, including OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, developer platforms, and technology start-ups. The project was named after the historic lunar landing program to illustrate its scale and complexity.

As the leader in safety-certified, secure, and reliable software for the automobile industry, BlackBerry currently provides OEMs around the world with state-of-the-art cybersecurity technology to protect and mitigate, hardware, software, applications and end-to-end systems from cyberattacks. BlackBerry’s pedigree in security and continued innovation has led to recent automotive design wins with Delphi, Denso, Qualcomm, Visteon, and others.
