Powering the Future Together: Qt and NVIDIA Jetson

Power up Cross-Platform Design & Development with Qt

Qt offers an exceptional suite of powerful tools for developers looking to build high-quality, cross-platform applications quickly and efficiently. The comprehensive suite includes both Qt Development and Design tools, providing users with the resources they need to bring their innovative ideas to life. With easy-to-use design tools, such as Qt Design Studio, designers and technical artists can create visually stunning interfaces with ease, while development tools provide the libraries and environments necessary to build top-notch applications for desktop, mobile, and embedded platforms. With Qt's seamless integration and world-class support, developers can create beautiful and powerful applications quickly.

Technical Integration with the NVIDIA Jetson Edge AI Platform

Technical integration has been done with Boot2Qt (Yocto) images and commercial Debian packages for Jetson hardware (refer to the list below). Further integration is in the works – keep an eye out for a demonstration on pattern recognition using CUDA, among other things.

Download Demos to run on Jetson Developer Kits



The application showcases a 3D animated heart which can be configured to beat at different rates by adjusting the BPM slider or clicking the "PULSE RATE" buttons. The heart can also be resized with the size slider or through the MAGNIFICATION buttons. There are callouts available for toggle which, when enabled, will label various aspects of the 3D model. Finally, there is an ability to add open-ended notes by clicking on the hamburger menu at the top right of the application.

Once the demo is deployed to the hardware, you will need an active Qt for Device Creation license. If you need a license, you may request a Qt for Device Creation evaluation on the Qt Software Free Trials page. Please select “Development Framework & Tools” download for Linux.
