Commercial, Construction, Naval, and Agricultural Vehicles—Digitalized

Leverage digitalization to maximize your production and optimize your processes. As the level of automation, connectivity, and IoT technology continue to advance in industrial vehicles, the importance of the HMI becomes increasingly crucial. 

With many similarities to other sectors (Industrial Automation and Automotive in the first place), digitalization is revolutionizing the landscape of industrial vehicles with new solutions for process automation and optimization, and for operator's safety.

Equipped with leading-edge technology, including advanced navigation and communication systems, vehicle and material handling systems, varying degrees of remote operability, and more, such machines enable the safe and efficient management and transportation of goods. 

In industrial vehicles, the HMI integrates information from many diverse devices, including cameras, sensors, cloud, microcontrollers and more. Qt, acting as a cross-platform middleware, provides the level of abstraction and standardization needed to integrate such different systems together with little effort, for the different modules to talk to each other, and for multiple software stacks to live on one codebase.

Real-Time Graphics and Interactivity

Render information in a timely and continuous way using real-time tech in dedicated HMIs that leverage sensors, camera data, symbolism, and interactivity to enhance the user experience. 

High-performance HMIs provide safe and effortless usability for operatorseven non-specialized oneswith customizable user experience to meet specific needs and ensure reliable usage. Displays built with Qt are used across Commercial, Construction, Naval, and Agricultural Machines to provide operators a comprehensive view of the performance of the equipment at each stage of its activity, both inside the cabin and remotely.

A detailed visualization of the surrounding area and potential obstacles around the machines helps improve safety for operators and efficiency for production. Qt-built Surround-view monitors that deliver a 360° view of the vehicle in its environment provide operators with detailed views of the working environment that increase comfort and safety in demanding work situations.

Industry-Grade Quality, Safety, and Reliability

Protect your operations with easy-to-use, dependable industrial vehicle HMIs that can be certified for safety standards and regulations, ensuring that your vehicles are working at peak performance while minimizing the risk of accidents or downtime.

When talking about industrial vehicles, we talk of heavy-duty machines—weighing tons, lifting and moving massive loads—that can't compromise on quality or safety. 

Qt Group's Quality Assurance tools let you shift left error detection in the development cycle to save time and resources while improving the overall quality of the end product.

To meet safety standards, static code analysis helps with early identification of violations of coding guidelines—for better-quality code and improved maintainability. Architecture verification helps you ensure alignment between code and intended architecture, generate reliable documentation, and simplify software maintenance and refactoring. Qt Safe Renderer ensures that safety-critical information is always on display and helps you meet industry-grade certification requirements.

Code Reusability and Platform Strategy

Target a variety of devices by leveraging highly optimized, ready-made, cross-platform components, customizable and deployable to different devices. Scalable software lets you target different platforms and easily integrate third-party code in a single codebase, simplifying development and maintenance.

Qt framework's libraries deliver standardized building blocks of code reusable across varied systems and configurable for diverse customer requirements. Cross-platform compatibility lets you abstract away from low-level hardware and software details, making Qt code reusable across a variety of devices. 

By leveraging Qt as a platform of high-quality, reusable components, you are able to shift your software development approach from project-based (engineering-to-order) to a product-based (configure-to-order) with substantial reduction in development effort and delivery time and a parallel enhancement of your product's quality.

Customer Stories Written with Qt


Built with Qt

BOMAG uses Qt for developing their award-winning, multi-device myCOCKPIT HMI. 

“Our myCOCKPIT HMI interacts with all operating elements and assistance functions of the machine. This enables us to operate these often very complex systems in an understandable and efficient way. For example, we are able to display various camera systems, process parameters, and system status simultaneously with a very good user experience. ”

Panasonic Avionics

Built with Qt

By using Qt (with C++ and QML), the developers at Panasonic Avionics are able to focus on the design and the usability of the interactive.

“We use Qt in a lot of different development aspects. For example, we use it for creating a certification application that's actually used to certify all the wiring of the aircraft before deployment. We also offer a wide range of different form factors... We want to be able to develop once and show it on everything.'”

Parker Hannifin

Built with Qt

The vision for starting the project was to reduce the number of displays in the machinery cabin and create an application-based product that would allow their customers to integrate several applications into one display.

“The wow-effect was there when you program with QML. It keeps on astonishing with it’s ease-of-use and efficiency. I got that feeling right in the beginning and it has even amplified along the way. QML has provided a solid base for our software.”
