The Qt Company has announced that its development framework has been selected as the foundation for Daimler AG‘s new user interface (UI) of the in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems for A-Class passenger cars with Mercedes-Benz user interface (MBUX).
There is an increasing number of displays built inside cars, which play an integral part in building the user experience of the whole vehicle. Digital experiences are a combination of in-car information, mobile and cloud base services. These state-of-the-art IVI systems are the main contribution by car manufacturers in building their branded experience.
Manufacturers are turning to more specialized coding frameworks to build highly customized user interfaces (UIs) for the IVI systems of the millions of units they sell globally per year. In addition, scalable software platform allows them to keep the software secure and up to date. Qt’s cross-platform framework enables rapid development of these UIs, accelerating manufacturers’ time-to-market for their next generation of automobiles.
Qt claims it’s integrated development framework future-proofs OEMs UI development together with tier-one suppliers and software subcontractors with one framework to drive all screens in the automobiles with a unified toolchain.
