Luxoft Holding announced the support for the Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink connectivity standards by Luxoft’s TEORA automotive human machine interface (HMI) development tool chain. These connectivity standards link smartphones, tablets, and wearable devices to car infotainment systems and join TEORA in addition to the existing support of the GENIVI SmartDeviceLink (SDL) implementations.
“It is clear that multiple connectivity standards will coexist in a car in order to accommodate the users’ needs. Our goal is to design the HMI systems that will integrate multiple screens in a safe and efficient way.”
Serkan Arslan, Luxoft’s Global Director of Automotive Business Development
TEORA is a software platform that Luxoft uses to develop scalable, appealing, and swift-to-market car HMI implementations. TEORA is Luxoft’s “know-how” that powers the development of new UX and HMI projects. It comes with a perfectly aligned tool chain, including tailor-made applications with interfaces to standard platforms, such as Adobe Photoshop or Flash, to transfer simple graphics into interactive objects in the most efficient way. The multi-rendering approach enables a seamless integration of mixed 2D, 3D, Qt, Adobe Flash, and HTML5 content in one platform to match Luxoft’s customers’ requirements perfectly. The platform has already been ported to Windows, QNX, and Linux.
