"BYTON sta rivoluzionando lo sviluppo di veicoli autonomi e l'opportunità di contribuire con la nostra tecnologia alla prima serie di veicoli di produzione è un vero privilegio", ha dichiarato John Wall, SVP e GM di BlackBerry QNX. "In seguito al nostro recente annuncio che il software QNX è ora incorporato in oltre 120 milioni di automobili, mai prima abbiamo avuto la possibilità di integrare le nostre piattaforme software robuste e sicure in tanti prodotti rivoluzionari. e non vediamo l'ora di lavorare con loro per raggiungere la loro visione di un'esperienza di guida migliore e più distintiva. "
Scegliendo BlackBerry QNX, BYTON può garantire che i sistemi critici per la sicurezza possano essere separati da sistemi non critici per la sicurezza e che il funzionamento del veicolo, incluso il Shared Experience Display di BYTON, sia gestito in modo sicuro. Parlando ulteriormente del contratto, Jeff Chung, Vicepresidente, Intelligent Car Experience di BYTON, ha osservato:
 
"Garantire la perfetta integrazione di navigazione, infotainment e funzioni di guida critiche non è un compito da poco, e quando si tratta di integrare applicazioni e informazioni critiche e non critiche in un ambiente cluster, la sicurezza è la nostra priorità principale. Sarò in grado di offrire entrambi, non solo offrendo un'esperienza completamente nuova per le persone in movimento, ma anche in modo affidabile e sicuro. "
