Denso and BlackBerry have launched their co-developed human machine interface (HMI) digital cockpit system first to be introduced in Subaru vehicles.

Named Denso Harmony Core, the platform is powered by BlackBerry QNX Hypervisor virtualisation technology.

First revealed at CES 2018, the digital cockpit system uses a combination of advanced software and human interaction to create a new automotive user experience.

BlackBerry QNX technology will allow various independent operation systems with different controls to be integrated with one microcomputer within a vehicle.

The new automotive digital experience integrates the cluster, head unit, infotainment system and entertainment screens with the safety Subaru offers.

Denso Harmony Core will become available in the US at the end of the year in the all-new 2020 Subaru Legacy and Outback models.

Other automobile manufacturers across the world will launch new car models with the integrated HMI systems.

Denso director and cockpit systems business unit head Atsushi Hayashida said: “With the rapid development of technology for self-driving and electric vehicles, the value of cars is about to change significantly.

“By collaborating with other companies and research institutes, refining the technology and accelerating product and service delivery to help manufacturers deliver next generation vehicles, Denso is creating new value for the global Smart Mobility society.”

BlackBerry has recently launched the BlackBerry QNX Acoustics Management Platform (AMP) 3.0, the latest version of its automotive acoustics software.

The new version allows automakers to design and manage the total acoustic experience in their cars.

BlackBerry has also expanded its partnership with Jaguar Land Rover for the development of the automotive manufacturer’s next generation vehicles.
