DENSO and BlackBerry Release Automobile HMI Platform

SUBARU is first to ship vehicles with DENSO ?Harmony Core,? cutting-edge digital cockpit technology powered by BlackBerry QNX.

DENSO Corporation and BlackBerry Limited launched the initial integrated HMI (Human Machine Interface) digital cockpit system with BlackBerry QNX technology. SUBARU will be the first vehicle manufacturer to utilize the jointly developed digital cockpit platform, containing the BlackBerry QNX Hypervisor, in a commercial capacity.  

The DENSO Harmony Core will be included in the 2020 SUBARU Legacy and Outback (U.S. models), starting in fall 2019.

BlackBerry, DENSO and SUBARU have teamed up to offer a digital cockpit solution that employs BlackBerry QNX® Hypervisor technology to yield integrated control of in-vehicle HMI systems. 

“Software is the driving force in next-generation automotive design," said BlackBerry QNX’s SVP and General Manager, John Wall. “As cars become more data-driven and automated, they demand functional, secure and trusted in-vehicle software. A leader in automotive technology, BlackBerry is excited to bring one of the world’s first integrated digital cockpit platforms to market with DENSO in  SUBARU’s latest vehicles, helping manufacturers to take advantage of a significant industry trend – the exploding demand for a safe, seamless, digital in-car experience.”
