Turbocharge Your Vehicles with Qt as They Have

Optimized Productivity in HMI Design

Streamline your workflow and increase your productivity by letting your UI/UX designers, technical artists, developers, and test engineers teams speak the same language.

With a range of products encompassing the whole lifecycle of HMI production, Qt technology and tools increase synergies across teams, simplify processes, and reduce the effort of delivering future-proof automotive software.

A Single Codebase for Every Model

Break down silos and increase your team’s productivity.

By letting you maintain your entire codebase in a single repository shared among all teams, Qt technology ensures one source of truth, minimizes dependency issues, and simplifies large-scale refactoring.

Efficient Designer-Developer Workflow

Unleash the power of a UI creation tool where the UI's visual experience is built side by side with its code.

Qt Design Studio enables an integrated working methodology for your UI/UX designers and developers that drastically reduces complexity and efforts, with huge benefits on time to market and cost.

Streamlining Operations

Reduce BOM, time-to-market, maintenance effort with tools for each production stage that speak the same language.

The adoption of a unified HMI framework whose tools encompass the end-to-end product lifecycle empowers emancipation from third-party suppliers, with major benefits in terms of productivity, efficiency, brand identity, and quality.

Meeting the Highest Quality Standards

Ensure the quality, safety, and reliability of your HMI software.

Qt Quality Assurance offer lets you test your software quality beyond the user interface to assure its overall compliance with coding guidelines. Qt Safe Renderer helps you meet the road vehicle’s functional safety requirements for your instrument cluster.

Real-time Usage Intelligence

Leverage real-time usage data to understand user behavior.

Qt Insight lets you constantly improve your software and services by tracking user activity and application flow to learn what functionality is valued and which is not.

Qt Automotive HMI Framework

Leverage over 15 years of mass-production history with the major automotive industry players and millions of automotive HMIs in the market—and more to come.

Far beyond simple UI development, the Qt framework lets you define the entire platform’s middleware, empowering broad support to automotive functionality, third-party services, and advanced graphics—while delivering a native user experience on any target.

Flexible Framework

Leverage a wide set of HMI libraries that can be easily extended and customized with C++ code across the whole software stack.

With its easily readable, declarative syntax, QML offers ample creative resources to efficiently build outstanding HMIs whose behavior can be customized with the greatest flexibility by means of C++ code.

Platform-independent Code

Leverage the efficiency of an HMI creation workflow decoupled from hardware constraints.

Qt cross-platform core lets you implement your dashboard on PC empowering major time savings, consistent visuals across displays and devices, and independence from hardware suppliers.

Future-proof Technology

Secure your market presence throughout your vehicle program lifecycle.

Qt platform-independent code saves your HMI from the risk of hardware and OS obsolescence. Being maintained for years, Qt long-term releases secure your product’s market permanence over time.

Multi-product Portfolios

Create your code once and port it to different platforms as is or via simple differentiation of the look-and-feel.

Qt software design paradigm decouples the UI appearance from its underlying logic, paving the way for the creation of highly optimized UI components that can be shared across product lines and easily customized based on each model’s demands.

Ready-made HMI Components

Build at scale with high-quality standardized HMI components that can be easily customized for different devices and models.

Qt HMI solutions include ready-made components—such as menus, widgets, animations, visual effects, and more—that will bring your dashboard to life with rich automotive-specific functionality and state-of-the-art graphics.

Empowering the Software-Defined Vehicle

Maximize the value of your automotive software by owning and controlling its entire lifecycle from inception to completion.

By providing ready-made support for the whole automotive software stack and the backbone of the entire car ecosystem, Qt technology empowers the foundation of a true software-first revolution in the automotive industry.

A Full-scale Platform Policy

Reduce overall time to market by leveraging efficiencies across development and maintenance.

Qt offers a unified HMI development process under a single UI framework enabling control over the key aspects of the connected car infrastructure such as the In-Vehicle Framework, Infotainment Framework, and Connectivity Framework.

Boosting Real-time Graphics

Leverage the full power of 2D and 3D graphics to increase informativity and functionality. 

Qt Quick graphics capabilities let you represent complex life-like situations by means of 3D graphics, that can be seamlessly interacted with by means of intuitive 2D controls. Additionally, the Qt framework lets you embed OpenGL, OpenGL ES, Vulkan, Direct3D, and Metal graphics on any car display.

Consistent Look-and-feel

Deliver a coherent signature UI across each screen in the car.

Qt cross-platform code lets you reuse visual assets and UI elements across different devices, both in-car—instrument cluster, IVI, HUD, etc.—and portable—phones, wearable, PC, etc.—ensuring that your uniquely branded user experience is consistently displayed.

The Connected Vehicle

Enjoy the freedom to connect your car to your everyday life.

By enabling remote control via smartphone and companion apps, Qt connectivity tools bring your car to your fingertips. Qt-supported connectivity protocols integrate your vehicle infotainment system with your home and IoT devices.
