It was the end of an era for BlackBerry as the company pulled the plug on support for its classic smartphones — 22 years after the device first hit the market this week. But what these headlines didn’t tell you is that over 195 million cars worldwide currently use BlackBerry software.
BlackBerry IVY, developed in partnership with AWS, is the company’s cloud-connected software ecosystem that equips OEMs to analyze vehicle sensor data and derive actionable insights. BlackBerry revealed more about their smart car innovation at CES 2022.
Peter Virk, Vice President, IVY Product & Ecosystem at BlackBerry, joins me on Tech Talks Daily to talk about the announcements at CES. We discuss how vehicle data can be turned into actionable insights and how BlackBerry QNX technology is integrated across the vehicle.
I learn more about how BlackBerry IVY brings together signals from various sensors across the vehicle and how configuration is then controlled via the cloud-based IVY console. Finally, we discuss how the IVY platform makes real-time AI decisions and the role of IVY “Buck”: BlackBerry’s physical car dashboard.
