KDAB TV – Qt Embedded Days 2021

This playlist features all recorded talks from Qt Embedded Days 2021. You find the complete list of speakers here https://www.qtembeddeddays.com/speakers-2021/

Since almost all embedded devices interact with the physical world, the reoccurring problem is how to deal with the various values from the physical world. One sensor may measure the current in milliamperes, while another may measure it in microamperes. There are also different measurement systems, such as metric and imperial (e.g. gallons and litres, metres and yards, etc.), but there are also units that overlap with others (e.g. litres and metres cubed, Kelvin and Celsius). Even worse, we must ensure that all arithmetic operations with physical values must be valid (e.g. we can’t add Volts and Kelvins, but we can multiply them). Thankfully, modern C++ offers a lot of built-in language functionalities to make this job easy, transparent and surprisingly optimal in the run time.

This work was motivated by a past project in which many subtle bugs were caused by inconsistent treatment of measured values.

You will learn:
– how we can use SI system of units for our benefit
– the typical requirements and constraints on the real embedded projects concerning the physical units
– which features from modern C++ are useful for this job
– the difference between absolute and relative values
– how to write your own implementation
– how to make the refactored code readable and succinct

Qt Embedded Days - Dealing with Physical Units in Modern C++, by Nikola Jelić

Embedded systems are often setups that combine a general purpose computer with a domain specific device, attached via a standard bus or network connection. In such setups, the main computer is usually monitoring and controlling the overall system functionality, essentially “steering” the specialized device.

Similar to the situation with airplanes, it is not always possible, and sometimes not even desired, to have the pilot train and/or test with the real thing. This talk is a case study around a joint project of Data Modul's and KDAB's, for which we built tooling that simulates the project’s CAN-Bus attached hardware.

What were the driving factors for having a simulator?
Which architecture and technologies were chosen for its implementation?
How does it hold up in practice?
Any lessons for future projects?

Qt Embedded Days - Simulator Training for Hardware Pilots / simulating CAN-Bus attached hardware

Qt Embedded Days - The easiest way to develop and build a modern UI for Raspberry Pi

When a device fails in the field, the consequences can be significant. In our talks with embedded OEMs, one thing is for certain: addressing a problem in the field is costly. Anticipating and preventing field failures enables market leaders to invest in innovation, rather than costly resource-draining diagnosis, repair, and redesign. Typically, these costs detract from new product development, impacting time-to-market.

In this presentation, we’ll discuss different levels of reliability. We’ll also examine methods for achieving long-term reliability, ensuring that a well-tested data storage system contributes to preventing field failures while increasing the lifetime of an embedded device.

Qt Embedded Days - What Does Reliability Mean To You? by Sami Kassimäki, Tuxera

When we develop a Qt application for an embedded system, we edit code in Qt Creator running on a desktop computer, press the Run button, and have Qt Creator run the application on the embedded device – many times per day. We also want to switch between desktop and embedded builds without restarting Qt Creator. We perform the many tiny TDD steps on the desktop computer and inspect our work from time to time on the embedded device.

00:00​ Introduction
00:44​ The 5 Minute Challenge
22:37 CMake Toolchain Files
31:03 Qt Qreator Configuration Files
39:36​ Q&A

I have spent many hours on several occasions trying to “convince” QtCreator and CMake to work together seamlessly. QtCreator and CMake are pretty good at producing a never-ending stream of problems. Installing the executables and libraries on the device fails. The detection of the C and C++ compilers fails. QtCreator refuses to update its project configuration with modified CMake settings. The CMake toolchain file is buggy or missing. QtCreator forgets some, but not all, run and deployment settings.

With minimum user input, the installer of the commercial Boot2Qt SDK creates the CMake toolchain files and the configuration files for a QtCreator kit. QtCreator auto-detects the kit when restarted. Cross-compilation, deployment, and execution of Qt applications for an embedded device work out of the box. We want the same smooth setup experience with non-commercial Qt SDKs, too!

Non-commercial Qt SDKs lack the CMake toolchain file that does not depend on the environment variables of a Yocto SDK. This toolchain file is required for switching between desktop and embedded builds without restarting QtCreator. I’ll provide a script that generates the missing CMake toolchain file.

Non-commercial Qt SDKs also lack the QtCreator configuration files for the kit, Qt version, C/C++ compilers, CMake configuration, and device. Boot2Qt comes with a script that generates these configuration files using the undocumented QtCreator utility sdktool. As the script is distributed under GPLv3, we can modify and use it. I’ll extend the script to generate the correct configuration files.

I use the scripts to set up QtCreator for cross-compilation with CMake and for deploying and running a Qt application on a Toradex Verdin i.MX8M Mini board. When I press the Run button in QtCreator, some magic will happen!

Qt Embedded Days - Containerize your Qt embedded application by Valter Minute, Toradex

There’s an ever increasing amount of computing power available in embedded devices. With technology as powerful as Qt at hand, development teams around the globe are making good use of this power, creating beautiful and intuitive graphical user interfaces (GUIs) which expose a lot of functionality.

However, this brings new challenges: to stay competitive and meet customer demand, you need to make sure that the user interface actually looks and behaves as intended.

In this talk, we will present a proven approach to creating fully automated, robust, and maintainable GUI tests for Qt applications running on embedded devices. An ARM iMX6 based device running a Qt-based GUI will be used to demonstrate how the Squish GUI Tester tool can be used to develop automated GUI tests. A few test cases will be created live and we will demonstrate how the novel Remote Control and Remote System functionalities can be used to interact with target devices that are not in the same physical location as your test development setup.

About the speaker
Tomasz Pawlowski FroglogicTomasz Pawlowski started his adventure with Squish and GUI testing in 2011, designing and implementing automated tests for a Flight Planning solution. In 2014 he joined froglogic and has been conducting Squish trainings and consulting for many companies in Europe, India, and in the US.

Additionally, he works on maintaining Squish integrations. Tomasz has a Master’s degree in computer science.

Qt Embedded Days - Get inspired by web development: A story based on the example of the Flux pattern

In the embedded industry the huge majority of software development is done in C. Even in 2021, C++’s usage is still a second distant. It’s worth asking: why is that? Does C++ not provide the right tools to the embedded developers? Do these tools come at an unacceptable price? How much truth there is in the “usual” comments about C++’s complexity?

This talk wants to discuss how C++ is, in fact, a great language for embedded development. C++ isn’t merely a “superset of C”; it also features a stricter type system, deterministic and automatic release of resources, true support for generic programming, as well as other facilities that can actually drastically improve a C++ program’s performances (over an equivalent written in C).

I know, now you’re probably thinking;

“What’s the catch? If it’s so good, why aren’t we using it already everywhere?” or “Sure, that all sounds nice and easy, but that’s only because _you_ are already proficient in C++! Try reading through these 2000 lines of error message…” or even “Linus says C++ is bad, who are you to disagree with him? Where’s _your_ kernel?”. Then, this talk is for you.

While learning how C++ can be incredibly useful for embedded software, we will try to demystify (some of) the “myths” about C++. Sure enough, many legends have a grain of truth; but in science and technology, sometimes legends spiral out of control, and eventually become self-fulfilling prophecies. We will tame these stories, and showcase actual code that hopefully will demonstrate how C++ can serve C developers just fine, and make them create more robust and more efficient software.
