Qt to Showcase Highly Innovative Embedded Systems Projects at Embedded World 2019

At the world’s leading fair for embedded systems, Qt and its customer and partner ecosystem to demonstrate the latest innovations in device, application and user interface design – including The Learning Robot demonstration in collaboration with AWS

Espoo, Finland and Nuremberg, Germany – February 26, 2019 – The Qt Company today announced its participation at the Embedded World event in Nuremberg, Germany from February 26-28, 2019. In addition to a wide range of product demonstrations for the automotive, automation, medical device and IoT industries, Qt will showcase the Qt Designer-Developer Workflow, enabled by the cutting-edge suite of Qt UI Design Tools. Qt’s customers and partners will also present their own product demos, including AWS’ highly innovative robotic arm demo, The Learning Robot. Qt’s booth will be located at Stand 4-258 in Hall 4 of the Nuremberg Exhibition Center.

With embedded device manufacturers seeking to offer their customers the most immersive digital displays available across their respective industries, the responsibility falls on developers and designers to deliver a consistent, user-friendly experience across multiple screens. Qt enables companies to meet and exceed these customer expectations by providing an extensive set of ready-made libraries and developer tools – including highly advanced 2D and 3D user interface design tools – to improve collaboration between developers and designers. Qt helps companies boost productivity, reduce operating costs and streamline mission-critical business processes for several sectors.

Highlights from Qt and its customers and partners at Embedded World 2019 include:

• The Learning Robot demonstration: The Learning Robot demonstration is a joint pilot project from the Qt Company and AWS, showcasing the ease of EDGE device machine learning capabilities in conjunction with Qt Application and Device Creation development. In this project, the machine learning framework MXNet is utilized to analyze a body via computer vision in real-time, enabling the user to control the robot arms with his own arm movements. This technology can be applied in:

  • Quality and Failure Detection (e.g. Food and Beverage)
  • Process and Product Optimization (Speech, Audio, or Video)
  • Maintenance Improvements (Anomality Detection)
  • Operation and Process Improvements (CoRobot control)

Qt Designer-Developer Workflow: Qt makes collaboration between designers and developers easier and more efficient than ever before. The Qt Designer-Developer Workflow, enabled by Qt UI Design Tools, helps designers and developers work simultaneously with one common UI framework. This brings the UIs to life with advanced animations, and enables companies to deploy and test the UIs in real target hardware from day one – resulting in fast iterations, effective and lean workflow, and a shorter time-to-market

• Proof of Concept – Qt on MCU: This proof of concept illustrates how Qt Professional Services can provide optimization for scaling Qt down on Cortex-M7 or even Cortex-M4. The solution, including the full version, can be executed as a turnkey service

• Infusion Pump on the INTEGRITY RTOS: Built on Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY RTOS using Qt Design Studio and the Qt Safe Renderer IEC 62304 certified software tool, this demo is a simulation of an FDA class III large volume infusion pump

• Qt for Automation and IoT: The technology foundation for a future-proof software strategy targeting the edge devices in the automation industry. A complete demo showcasing the cross-platform capabilities, granting the same developer experience for all the use cases in automation (touch panel, mobile, gateway, controllers and web applications), using enhancing connectivity (QtOPCUA, QtMQTT) and remote UI (Qt for Webassembly) capabilities

Fully Integrated Digital Cockpit Reference Platform: Developed in collaboration with Luxoft and built on Qt Automotive Suite and PELUX running on Intel Automotive Reference Platform (ARP), this demo allows users to create their own customized infotainment system for their specific business needs

Qt Fast Boot: Built by Qt Professional Services in cooperation with Toradex, the Qt Fast Boot demo executes a cold boot in less than 1.5 seconds, resulting in a beautiful Qt GUI. Running on Linux OS, the solution is based on a Toradex Apalis System on Module with an NXP i.MX 6 SoC

Qt-related demos will also be on display at other vendors’ booths, including:
ST Microelectronics
• Toradex
• Boundary Devices
• TechNexion
• TQ Systems
• Green Hills Software
• Blackberry
• Windriver

“Embedded World 2019 will underscore the close collaboration that is now required between developers and designers to deliver highly functional embedded devices and applications,” said Lars Knoll, CTO, The Qt Company. “We’re excited to join our customers and partners in showcasing the almost endless possibilities for innovation in today’s embedded systems – as well as the importance of a robust development framework that can help companies bring their designers’ creations to life.”
