It doesn’t look like a BlackBerry
These days you are more likely to see a BlackBerry when you look at the instrument cluster in your car than when you look at the cell phone in your pocket. The BlackBerry in your car is likely to be a software platform for instrument clusters from BlackBerry’s QNX operation. QNX makes an ISO 26262 ASIL B-certified graphics framework used by several Tier One instrument makers. It also makes real-time operating systems used by several automakers such as Ford (in its Sync in-vehicle communications and entertainment system), Audi, and FCA. The demo at the FTF event showed how the QNX operating system could detect when an erroneous display had somehow been sent to the instrument cluster as might take place in the case of a car hacking. The warnings visible here are the result.
