We’ve shown a little of what we’re demonstrating at CES this year, so today we decided to hit the road and look at some Qt-powered demos and products elsewhere at CES.
First, something very cool in the automotive space is being shown by Visteon.
Using the in-vehicle infotainment reference platform from the GENIVI alliance, Visteon used Qt to create the graphics system and user interface on their three screen in-car infotainment center prototype, which has full mobile device connectivity.
Here's a video of the demo in action. Thanks to Visteon for allowing us to film it.
Another cool GENIVI-based demo is situated in our own booth. While it doesn’t run three screens, it shows off some other possibilities on the GENIVI platform, namely terminal mode for mobile devices.
Instead of just synching the device with the head unit, terminal mode lets users control the car entertainment interface with their phone. It’s a very exciting step. Stay tuned to our YouTube channel and this blog for a video of it soon.
In industries other than automotive, Engineering services company Movial have collaborated with ST Ericsson and ARM to use Qt in a next level infotainment center UI which is the first to use the Mali GPU.
The demo shows a rich 3D, accelerated interface built with Qt, and it seamlessly integrates online content and other stored media. The result is an amazing experience in the center of your living room which shows very clearly that in the near future more and more web-based tasks will be moving from your PC to your TV. A video of the demo will be up soon as well.
So at the close of day three CES is approaching the finish line. We’ll wrap up the show for you in the coming days and post videos of every demo that ran in our booth.
