WATERLOO, ON and BEIJING, Oct. 20, 2020 /CNW/ -- BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) today announced that BlackBerry QNX technology will power the innovative digital cockpit in ARCFOX αT, a high-end, intelligent, electric SUV.

In ARCFOX αT's digital cockpit system, the fully digital instrument cluster, console touchscreen, AC screen and Heads-Up Display are all based on the QNX Hypervisor, the world's first ISO 26262 ASIL D safety-certified commercial embedded hypervisor.
