The intelligent Renault EV cockpit will also get augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and hologram functions as well as controls for ambient lights and intelligent seats. The cockpit also allows for a significant degree of personalization for both drivers and passengers alike.

The BICV advanced and intelligent cockpit is based on the company's highly reliable QNX Neutrino RTOS and features the QNX Hypervisor for design flexibility and scalability. This allows consolidation of multiple systems with mixed criticality and different operating environments onto a single hardware platform. “BlackBerry QNX's operating system is one of the world’s most popular automotive real-time operating systems thanks to its high security, exceptional stability and rapid running speed," said Xu Linhao, Chairman of BICV.
