בלקברי מתכוננת לניסוי של רכב אוטומטי באונטריו

QNX מבית בלקברי תוביל צוות שיכלול את אוניברסיטת וואטרלו וקבוצת ארווין הימן אשר יבצעו ניסוי ראשון של נסיעת רכב ללא נהג ברחבי אונטריו.

  • BlackBerry QNX, a Canadian global software development leader, which will test a 2017 Lincoln with automated features.
  • The WATCar Project at the University of Waterloo's Centre for Automotive Research, which will monitor a Lincoln MKZ for performance and test it on-road at different levels of automation
  • The Erwin Hymer Group, an international auto manufacturer active in the Kitchener-Waterloo tech and innovation corridor, which will test and monitor a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van at different levels of automation

אונטריו היא עיר נוספת שבה יבוצעו ניסויים של רכבים ללא נהג, וזאת כדי להביא את השוק הצומח ל 75% עד שנת 2040. בעזרת הניסויים הללו בלקברי ו QNX יוכלו להראות את היתרונות שלהם בשוק וזאת כדי להיות מובילה בעולם הרכב.

University of Waterloo, Erwin Hymer Group, BlackBerry QNX First to Test New Technology

Ontario is supporting innovation in the transportation sector by launching the first automated vehicle (AV) pilot program in Canada, led by BlackBerry QNX, The University of Waterloo and the Erwin Hymer Group.

Automated vehicles are driverless or self-driving vehicles capable of detecting and navigating the surrounding environment, and have the potential to help improve road safety and fuel efficiency, as well as reduce traffic congestion and greenhouse gas emissions. The pilot brings together a range of expertise from the research, manufacturing and technology sectors to advance innovation and capability in Ontario's AV sector. The participants include:

  • The WATCar Project at the University of Waterloo's Centre for Automotive Research, which will monitor a Lincoln MKZ for performance and test it on-road at different levels of automation
  • The Erwin Hymer Group, an international auto manufacturer active in the Kitchener-Waterloo tech and innovation corridor, which will test and monitor a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van at different levels of automation
  • BlackBerry QNX, a Canadian global software development leader, which will test a 2017 Lincoln with automated features.

On Jan. 1, 2016, Ontario became the first province in Canada to create a pilot regulatory framework to test automated vehicles on its roads. The pilot will help attract and enable research and development in Ontario in this emerging industry, positioning the province as a global leader in the AV market.

Supporting transportation innovation is part of our plan to create jobs, grow our economy and help people in their everyday lives.

Quick Facts

  • The province has provided $2.95 million in funding to support Ontario industry and academia through the Ontario Centres of Excellence Connected Vehicle/Automated Vehicle Program.
  • The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers forecasts that by 2040, autonomous vehicles will account for 75 per cent of all vehicles on the road.
  • Ontario is one of the top jurisdictions in North America for vehicle production and the only sub-national jurisdiction to have five major global automotive assemblers: Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Honda and Toyota, as well as truck manufacturer Hino.
  • Ontario's information and communications technology cluster comprises over 19,000 firms and is second only to Silicon Valley in North America.
  • Ontario's $400-million Business Growth Initiative is helping to grow the economy and create jobs by promoting an innovation-based economy, helping small companies scale up and modernizing regulations for businesses.

רועי שפיטלניק, חי חיי בלקברי מאז 2009 אז נחשפתי לראשונה ל8900. עם היסטוריה בעולם הסלולר הישראלי, הדרכות וידע מורחב בנושא הבלקברי, החלטתי שיש קהילה שלמה שחייבת להיות מעודכנת בפרטים הנכונים ולא בנתונים שמנסים לדחוף לה. הקמתי בלוג בלקברי קטן, ולבסוף התמזגתי לתוך הבלוג הזה כדי להביא לכם את הטוב ביותר מעולם הבלקברי.
