Cooperation delivers best-in-class solution for safe systems in SDVs

11-06-2024 | Vector | Automotive & Transport

Vector is collaborating with QNX that will pave the way to ASIL D for SDV. Within the collaboration, Vector supplies a QNX operating system integration, the corresponding interface, and a safety case. OEMs and Tier-1s can now easily develop AUTOSAR-based applications with MICROSAR Adaptive Safe on QNX OS for Safety while benefiting from pre-aligned and industry-certified safety concepts to produce safe, high-performance systems for SDVs.

“This collaboration is an important step towards realizing the Software-Defined Vehicle,” says Grant Courville, vice president of Product and Strategy at BlackBerry QNX. “We are working closely with Vector to deliver a pre-integrated offering that realizes the benefits of the QNX OS for Safety combined with MICROSAR Adaptive Safe for our mutual customers.”

Performance is always a key requirement at Vector when integrating AUTOSAR Adaptive to the QNX OS. Therefore, to address these performance demands, a specific QNX OS abstraction layer was developed that makes use native QNX API system calls.

“Partnering with innovators such as QNX enables our customers to develop faster and more efficiently,” says Matthias Traub, director of Embedded Software and Systems at Vector. “We accelerate the development of SDVs with pre-integrated and coordinated and industry-certified safety concepts.”
