JLR Teams Up With Blackberry for AI Powered Cars

Jaguar Land Rover is hoping to accelerate its deployment of AI features in its vehicles with an extension of its technological partnership with BlackBerry.

While BlackBerry has been cooperating in the development of JLR digital system for some years, the collaboration between the companies has now expanded to include:

  • BlackBerry AI and machine learning employing its technologies, including BlackBerry QNX and BlackBerry Cylance, aimed at improving vehicle safety including predictive software maintenance and cyber-security threat protections;
  • Integrating BlackBerry software in JLR’s next-generation vehicle architecture;
  • BlackBerry consultants and security testing technology will be used to investigate cyber-security vulnerabilities in connected and autonomous vehicles.

As part of the closer relationship, Prof Sir Ralf D Speth, chief executive officer of JLR will deliver a keynote address at BlackBerry’s annual flagship security conference in London, on October 2, 2019. The event is a forum for business leaders, technology developers, industry experts and market analysts to address the secure communications requirements of the connected world.

Speth said: “Jaguar Land Rover and BlackBerry share a common objective in bringing the most intelligent vehicles to reality. I am delighted that our partnership with BlackBerry continues to go from strength-to-strength, a company whose technology innovations uniquely address the expanding safety needs of the automotive industry.”
