BlackBerry Ltd. jumped the most in three months after announcing it’s joining forces with Delphi Automotive Plc to provide the operating system for the low-cost self-driving car technology the auto-parts supplier will begin offering in 2019.

BlackBerry’s QNX unit, a supplier of infotainment software to major automakers including Ford Motor Co., will collaborate with Delphi on a system that improves software performance and enhances safety in autonomous cars, the two companies said Wednesday. Delphi is developing an affordable self-driving system with Intel Corp. and its Mobileye unit that it will begin selling to carmakers in two years.
