New extension allows car manufacturers to use a single HMI toolchain for all car segments
Las Vegas, January 3, 2016 – At CES 2016, Rightware has announced Kanzi Lite, an extension to its industry-leading Kanzi® HMI (Human-Machine Interface) design and development software. The new extension will enable car manufacturers and Tier 1s to use Kanzi as an HMI software platform for instrument clusters and infotainment screens in all car segments.
With the Kanzi Lite extension, Kanzi will support hardware from low-end microcontroller units (MCU’s) using proprietary graphics acceleration protocols to high-end System-on-a-Chips (SoCs) using standard graphics API’s such as OpenGL ES 2.0. Designers will be able to build HMIs for various car segments using the same designer-oriented Kanzi Studio tool, while engineers have access to the robust Kanzi Engine with its APIs and UI framework.
“Graphical user interfaces are now becoming defacto in all car segments. With the addition of Kanzi lite customers are now able to reduce time to market and increase reusability across their product lines.” Said Jonas Geust, CEO, Rightware
