Qt Automotive Suite 2.0 Released
We are happy to announce the release of Qt Automotive Suite 2.0, the Qt solution for digital cockpits, developed in collaboration between KDAB, The Qt Company and Luxoft.
The Qt Automotive Suite provides OEMs and Tier1s with powerful frameworks and tools to build a consistent user experience for both the instrument cluster and the center stack. As it’s built on top of an open platform, the Qt Automotive Suite makes it possible for the automakers to stay in complete control of the user’s brand experience.
The Qt Automotive suite seamlessly integrates KDAB’s runtime introspection tool GammaRay in Qt Creator, with embedded device support of Qt for Device Creation. See the release blogs for GammaRay 2.8 and GammaRay 2.9 for a summary of the new features and improvements.
Another focus area for KDAB has been a revamp of the Qt IVI module, providing a flexible framework to design and create APIs to platform middleware. Using an IDL and code-generation, as well as ready-made simulation backends, enables work before the full hardware or software stack is available. Having tooling support built in makes your APIs runtime instrospectable out of the box, for easy debugging or automated testing. For more details, see KDAB engineer Mike Krus’ presentation about the Qt IVI changes.
There are many more improvements in Qt Automotive Suite 2.0, make sure to check out the release blog.
