BlackBerry and L-SPARK, Canada’s largest Software-as-a-Service accelerator, have announced a third phase of their joint accelerator program, which aims to grow Canadian technology companies focused on connected vehicle solutions.

Following the success of the first and second cohorts, the partnership will once again help companies grow their businesses and bring new products to market using BlackBerry QNX technology.

The accelerator will provide selected companies with access to BlackBerry’s Intelligent Vehicle Data Platform – BlackBerry IVY, enabling them to develop high-impact solutions leveraging in-vehicle data to improve driver and passenger experiences.

Announced in December 2020 as part of a multi-year, global agreement with AWS, BlackBerry IVY is a vehicle-first, cloud-connected software platform that presents vehicle data in a normalized format.

BlackBerry IVY insights can be consumed by applications on or off the vehicle and are managed via a cloud console. The BlackBerry IVY development environment enables insights to be easily created from vehicle data, safely and securely.

Peter Virk, Vice President of IVY Product and Ecosystem, BlackBerry, said: “As we continue to build out a robust ecosystem of services and automotive applications to leverage the rich data insights that BlackBerry IVY provides, we can’t wait to see the ideas and use cases that will emerge to help automakers unlock the vast potential of next generation intelligent connected vehicles.”
