BlackBerry IVY FAQ
What is BlackBerry IVY?
BlackBerry IVY is cloud-connected, in-vehicle software platform that allows automakers to safely access vehicle sensor data and process that data on the vehicle (including with machine learning models). This can create new rich data insights which can be shared with software developers through a consistent and simple, safety-compliant, in-vehicle API mechanism.
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 the 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 195 million vehicles.
What are software sensors?
BlackBerry IVY standardizes the signals from sensors across a vehicle and then processes the data on the vehicle to create software sensors. Software sensors allow developers to easily access meaningful information about what is happening. For example, IVY can take data from seat sensors, door locks, seat belts and internal cameras and process that data into a software sensor for backseat occupancy. Developers can then write code that reads that software sensor to understand the meaningful characteristics of who is sat 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 software sensors provide for auto makers?
Software sensors take raw sensor data and creating new software-only sensor outputs in the vehicle. The ability to create software-only sensor outputs gives auto makers 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.
