BlackBerry IVY is a cloud-connected, in-vehicle software platform that allows automakers to safely access vehicle sensor data and process that data on the vehicle (including machine learning models). This can create new, rich data insights that can be shared with software developers through a consistent, simple, safety-compliant, in-vehicle API mechanism.
Streamline Your Automotive Software Development
BlackBerry IVY standardizes data from across all systems in the vehicle and enables ML processing at the vehicle edge. This creates new data-driven services, reduces operational costs, and creates new business and driver value.

BlackBerry IVY FAQ
What is BlackBerry IVY?
Who developed BlackBerry IVY?
BlackBerry IVY is a joint development between BlackBerry QNX and Amazon AWS
What is BlackBerry QNX?
BlackBerry QNX offers operating systems and hypervisors, tools, support, and services for the world’s most critical embedded systems. BlackBerry QNX is a market leader for safety-certified embedded software in automotive. Automakers and Tier 1s—including Aptiv, BMW, Bosch, Ford, GM, Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, and Volkswagen—trust BlackBerry® QNX® software for a broad range of critical systems. BlackBerry QNX software is now embedded in over 215 million vehicles.
What are synthetic sensors?
BlackBerry IVY standardizes the signals from sensors across a vehicle and then processes the data on the vehicle to create synthetic sensors. Synthetic sensors allow software developers to easily access meaningful information about what is happening. For example, BlackBerry IVY can take data from seat sensors, door locks, seat belts, and internal cameras and process that data into a synthetic sensor for backseat occupancy. Developers can then write code that reads that synthetic sensor to understand the meaningful characteristics of who is sitting in the back seat (occupied/unoccupied, if occupied by a child, etc.) without having to access data from each individual hardware sensor on the vehicle.
What do synthetic sensors provide for automakers?
Synthetic sensors take raw sensor data and create new software-only sensor outputs in the vehicle. The ability to create software-only sensor outputs gives automakers the ability to share vehicle information and to create new services and experiences without having to provide any access to the raw data or the sensors themselves.
