LAS VEGAS — BlackBerry Ltd. has announced plans to collaborate with PATEO to bring BlackBerry IVY into PATEO’s Digital Cockpit solution for sale in the Chinese market.

As part of the agreement, the two companies will work with a Chinese automobile manufacturer to set up a pilot project on the automaker’s all-electric model lineup.

According to BlackBerry, the expanded relationship is built on an existing collaboration between the two sides that leverages BlackBerry QNX technology alongside PATEO’s integration expertise to deploy advanced solutions for the Digital Cockpit market in China.

The company stated that BlackBerry IVY will be integrated within PATEO’s Digital Cockpit solution to deliver Service-Oriented Architecture solutions.

The BlackBerry IVY-PATEO vehicle pilot will also incorporate Electra Vehicles Inc.’s  AI/ML software, the EVE-Ai 360° Adaptive Controls that provides continuous updates on the battery’s state of charge, state of health and projected vehicle range. Following the successful completion of the project, the Chinese automobile manufacturer will seek to integrate the BlackBerry IVY – PATEO solution along with Electra Vehicles’ EVE-Ai Software into its next-generation all-electric model lineup.

“China contributes approximately half of global electric vehicle production and is a fertile ground for rapid automotive innovation and technology leaps. It’s a real pleasure to work with one of China’s leading automakers to demonstrate a wide-ranging set of innovative solutions that will put the BlackBerry IVY platform through its paces,” said Vito Giallorenzo, SVP Corporate Development & Chief Operating Officer, IoT in a statement.

The company has also announced that its full suite of automotive offerings including BlackBerry IVY will be demonstrated at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas from Jan. 5 to 8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Visitors can see BlackBerry at Booth number 4319 in the West Hall.
