Qt –The Fastest Way to Create Software for Your Digital Cockpit!

 Our massive class library and integrated tooling makes software developers more productive and designers more comfortable deploying to embedded hardware which means more design iterations leading to superior user experiences that gets you ahead of the competition.

At CES2018 we showcased several highly compelling Built-with-Qt-demos, which are listed below.

Digital Cockpit with Functional Safety

Qt’s flagship demo is a two-screen integrated digital cockpit concept that illustrates interdomain communication and cross-domain graphics. Applications are running in the Linux domain display.  Content is shown on both the center stack screen and the instrument cluster screen.

Meanwhile, the Qt Application Manager, together with Qt Wayland and the Qt Compositor, make it easy to build multi-process UIs and incorporate external applications, such as the HERE Navigation engine.  Qt is the leading tool to unify all UI needs for the digital cockpit.

E-Bike Instrument Cluster on Low-End System-on-a-Chip (SoC)

This is an e-bike instrument cluster concept designed and implemented in co-operation with Gofore. The concept highlights how Qt allows HMI designers and software engineers to work with the same tools and enables cost-effective, rapid prototyping.

Qt 3D Studio

Qt 3D Studio offers real-time UI editing, powerful 2D/3D UI authoring technologies including Qt's libraries, and an open, plugin-based architecture for rendering, input, materials and effects with easy access to all source code.

Qt’s new 3D design and development tool for software developers and graphic designers enables smoother workflows between different parties.

Reuse 3D designs in 2D instrument clusters

This demo at CES 2018 shows how a 3D instrument cluster designed and implemented in Qt 3D Studio can be easily replicated and converted into 2D on a low-end SoC typically used in low-end car models. 

Qt helps OEMs bring a consistent experience to HMIs across high and low-end models through seamless transition between 3D and 2D HMI tooling.

Demos from our Partners

In addition to our own demos, several of our partners brought their own implementations Built with Qt. Learn more about some of those!

  • Symbio
  • Siili
  • Parrot Faurecia Automotive

Symbio Elysian

Symbio Elysian is an infotainment solution providing unprecedented value for automotive manufacturers. It brings new wireless Apple and Google services inside the car and provides scripted and fully customizable user interfaces with Qt. Elysian is pre-certified for Apple Carplay, Android Auto, Baidu Carlife and Smart Device Link which reduces vehicle time to market through an accelerated certification process.

Elysian also features a sophisticated remote device management functionality, either through a dedicated modem or a car owner's cell phone. In addition to over-the-air software updates, manufacturer is also enabled to create subscription or micro payment services for the end customers. Modern software development and quality assurance methods and tools dramatically reduces integration risks and efforts.

Instrument Cluster with Integrated 3D Indoor Navigation

Instrument cluster for EV designed and implemented with Qt 3D Studio by Siili to support indoor (garage) navigation view in 3D. The base of this concept is the real model of a garage in Berlin.

Key features of the demo
• Uses a 3D garage model (Contipark Tiefgarage Hauptbanhof - Berlin)
• Complete instrument cluster for EV (with battery, power consumption, energy recuperation info)
• Integrates with smartphone localization services and enables door-to-door navigation
• Enables garage payments using a stored credit card
• Enables accidents awareness (shows other cars in the garage)

Parrot Faurecia Automotive demonstrator 

Parrot Faurecia Automotive demonstrator showcases Parrot’s unique know-how in software development and electronics design combined with Faurecia’s systems integration capabilities across the full interior – including the instrument panel and the seats. Parrot Faurecia Automotive embedded Android-based infotainment system, built upon the Smart Antenna O3+ and the HMI Brain, offers the vehicle occupants a rich multimedia experience (apps, navigation, music, video, etc.) bridging the best of the automotive and the smartphone worlds.

The HMI Brain runs Android, the apps, frameworks such as Qt and drives three large displays simultaneously, while the Smart Antenna O3+ handles radio reception, vehicle & telephone connectivity. This open system is scalable and able to keep up with the consumer electronics industry. l

Parrot is located within the Faurecia booth: Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Plaza, CP-3.
