Press Release: Automotive Industry Leaders Adopt Rightware Kanzi
Wealth of HMI solutions powered by Rightware Kanzi at CES 2015 indicates strong and growing momentum
CES 2015, LAS VEGAS, NV, January 5, 2015 —
Rightware, a global leader in automotive user interface creation tools, revealed today that its Kanzi UI solution is being used by a rapidly increasing number of industry leaders to power the automotive Human Machine Interfaces (HMI) of tomorrow. Rightware Kanzi is the only UI solution with a fully digital automotive instrument cluster currently in mass production.
Rightware and QNX Software Systems Limited, a subsidiary of BlackBerry Limited and a global leader in software platforms for connected embedded systems, today unveiled their latest collaboration: a next-generation, fully digital instrument cluster for the new QNX® technology concept car, based on a Maserati Quattroporte. Rightware’s design team used Rightware Kanzi to create a digital cluster that communicates the Maserati brand image while showcasing the latest trends in HMI design. With the QNX Neutrino® OS as the platform, Rightware engineers easily integrated the cluster with underlying vehicle data and services — including navigation, multimedia, speed, RPM, and car diagnostics — through an abstraction layer based on QNX persistent publish/subscribe (PPS) technology. To see a demonstration of the car, visit North Hall, booth 2231.
Global automotive supplier Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) is showcasing various automotive HMI solutions built on Rightware Kanzi at their CES 2015 pavilion.
