In today's digital era, every industry is embracing technology to enhance the functionality, efficiency, user experience and connectivity of their products—particularly automotive. With the increase in demand for connected cars, the need for advanced human-machine interfaces (HMIs) has also surged.
Altia is an industry-leading software company that offers HMI development solutions that cater to the specific needs of the automotive industry. Designed into over 100 million vehicles around the world, Altia’s software tools are specifically tailored for automotive applications with features and functionality to allow engineers to create advanced HMIs for connected cars.
Altia Design, the GUI editor and centerpiece of the toolchain, receives graphical assets from all popular graphics software so that development teams can truly deliver artist’s pixels to production devices. Altia DeepScreen, the automatic graphics code generator, supports a vast array of low- to high-power hardware and operating systems (Android, Linux, Green Hills, QNX and more), enabling beautiful graphics for automotive displays even for entry level vehicles, whether it be digital clusters, infotainment systems, head-up displays (HUDs), rear-seat infotainment systems or fully integrated cockpits.
Altia includes advanced features for 3D graphics, sophisticated animations and multimedia support, allowing designers to create immersive and interactive HMIs. Altia’s 3D graphics support enables designers to create high-quality and realistic 3D graphics, including interactive status cars, maps and coverflow. OEMs can proudly display their brand with rich cluster animations from an opening screen to full graphics and stream music and video content across displays in the vehicle.
Altia software can be integrated with a variety of apps to support multiple modalities—touch, voice commands and gesture recognition—which allows drivers to interact with the HMI without being distracted from the road. Altia also supports multiple languages, enabling designers to create HMIs for a global audience.
Scalability is another key automotive feature of Altia's HMI development software. Altia is used for the development of HMIs for various automotive products, including cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles as well as for various screen sizes from small cluster displays to pillar to pillar displays like in the Cadillac LYRIQ.
Altia’s scalability enables designers to create HMIs that are tailored to the specific needs of each product, ensuring that the HMI is intuitive and runs with optimum performance. Additionally, Altia provides ISO 26262 engineering software and services to address the requirements for automotive OEMs and Tier 1s to provide functionally safe embedded HMIs.
The Altia Safety Monitor (ASM) is an ASIL-B compliant general-purpose embedded software application that enables OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers to rapidly and cost effectively satisfy ASIL-B functional safety requirements by providing monitoring functionality for safety critical objects in the HMI.
The ASM confirms correct display of functional safety content when commanded—ensuring the safety of mission critical elements of automotive displays.
Altia's HMI development software is an essential tool for engineers and designers in the automotive industry who are developing HMIs for connected cars. Altia enable designers to create immersive, interactive and functionally safe HMIs, supports multiple input methods and offers scalability.
