    Does Tesla create their own software or a third-party for their cars?

    Nissan Revs Up Plans for the Connected Car - WSJ

    The Japanese car maker aims to install its connection device in around 12 million older vehicles

    YOKOHAMA, Japan— Nissan Motor Co. said Tuesday that it planned to accelerate the penetration of internet-connected vehicles by offering a connection device to existing customers in Japan and India starting next year.

    Nissan has been among the most aggressive car makers in putting connection technology in lower-priced vehicles. Now, it is expanding the offering to owners of older models.

    The device will allow car owners to get live updates on maintenance needs, make service appointments and order parts ahead of time. Nissan said it planned to bring the device to other countries eventually and install it in 30% of the 40 million Nissan vehicles on the road globally today.

    The device contains a Global Positioning System tracker and can transmit information about the vehicle’s health to Nissan through mobile networks. The goal is to give customers a taste of connected-car services that will become available on new cars, Nissan said.

    “In the coming years, customers will see sophisticated applications of software and hardware that will keep them connected with work, with friends and family. It will allow them to control their vehicles from their phones in their pockets,” said Kent O’Hara, who runs Nissan’s after-sales division.

    Facing plateauing car sales in major markets, auto makers are looking to a possible future in which software and services drive revenue growth. Data collected by connected-car devices could also help auto makers offer more tailored services in areas such as car insurance and car sharing. And connected cars generate data on driver behavior that is essential to improving self-driving software.

    For the moment, Nissan hopes that connected cars will drive revenue by pulling more vehicles into its dealer network for repairs and giving the company a better view of demand for replacement parts.

    The lion’s share of after-sales revenue today comes from replacement-parts sales, a business that could decline, Nissan says, as self-driving cars reduce accidents and electric vehicles remove many mechanical components from vehicles.

    Nissan said Tuesday that it wanted revenue from connected-car services, accessory sales and car-personalization options to contribute 25% to after-sales revenue by 2022, up from the low single digits today.

    BlackBerry has a problem announcing things that aren't new. How about some PR to help the company with its brand.

    There are at least two partners involved there, but most of the work is in-house.

    I know of two small (tiny) firms with very specialized experience in ML and big data analytics working with them. There may be others that I'm not aware of, but the core IP is all Tesla and the implementation of the in-car control algorithms are all theirs. Tesla considers this one of their most important Crown jewels .

    BlackBerry poised to be at forefront of secure self-driving cars - The Globe and Mail

    A timely acquisition six years ago is putting BlackBerry in the forefront of in-car infotainment systems and enabling development of secure autonomous vehicles.

    You may be using its product already, says Thomas Bloor, business development manager for BlackBerry QNX software systems.

    “We’re in a majority of IVI [in-vehicle infotainment] head units out there today; we’re in 60 million vehicles,” he said in a recent interview at the Los Angeles Auto Show. “We’re the predominant operating system in that marketplace today. It’s a nice place to be.”

    A pilot program in Canada will be sending autonomously driven vehicles onto Ontario public roads; off-road testing is underway now. The project brings together nine computer-science and engineering professors from the University of Waterloo’s Centre for Automotive Research, and involves the Erwin Hymer Group in addition to BlackBerry Ltd. A 2017 Lincoln MKZ, dubbed Autonomoose, and a Roadtrek E-Trek are the test vehicles.

    “QNX is a leader in embedded software for connected cars and autonomous drive,” John Wall, senior vice-president at BlackBerry, said in a statement released on Monday. He said the company is taking another step toward making autonomous vehicles “a commercial reality.”

    QNX flies under the radar as far as consumers are concerned, but it is well known in the auto industry for its “microkernel” operating system. It allows applications such as navigation, radio, mobile phone and media player, perhaps developed separately, to operate without conflicts.

    The software, installed in 40 different brands, allows you to go seamlessly from browsing your tunes via Apple CarPlay to looking up a route or making a telephone call.

    “Today, a lot of the systems put into the car are built and sourced in isolation from each other,” Bloor said. “So, a lot of systems end up fighting each other in the car.”

    At the show, QNX demonstrated how its system can allow a driver to use the infotainment unit’s active noise cancellation to talk to kids in the third row of an SUV without taking his eyes off the road, using a microphone and rear speakers.

    “It’s done in a very natural way,” he said, chatting normally while engine and road noise was pumped into the cabin.

    QNX, which also develops software for medical, transportation, defence and security applications, is based in the Ottawa suburb of Kanata. It employs about 500 engineers and plans to hire more, Bloor said.

    BlackBerry acquired the 45-year-old company from Harman International in 2010 and adapted QNX’s widely used operating system for the BlackBerry 10 OS, now discontinued.

    Since then, QNX’s automotive segment has become a growing part – Bloor won’t say how much – of BlackBerry’s business.

    “We have very strong customer acceptance in the industry and we have an enviable customer base in the automotive space,” he said.

    In 2014, Ford abandoned the bug-prone MyFord Touch infotainment suite developed with Microsoft in favour of the QNX system. Last month, Ford signed a deal for expanded use of QNX software and BlackBerry’s vaunted security-encryption software.

    “The future of the automobile is all about embedded intelligence,” BlackBerry chief executive John Chen said in the Oct. 31 announcement. “I believe our expertise in secure embedded software makes us the preferred technology provider to put the smart in the car.”

    Security is critical to develop hack-resistant autonomous vehicles, Bloor said.

    “We are bringing a lot of the security assets that secure the BlackBerry phones into the automotive space,” he said.

    Self-driving cars that are commanded by their occupants or dispatched through a linked network need to have a very high standard of security.

    “Moving forward towards this vision of the autonomous connected vehicle, you can’t really build a safe system if you can’t make it secure,” Bloor said. “Obviously, safety and security are very strongly intertwined.”
