Elektrobit Enhances EB Guide Interface Design Software
Elektrobit, a supplier of embedded and connected software for the automotive industry, has added features to EB Guide that will make developing advanced human-machine interfaces (HMIs) more convenient and accessible to a broader range of developers. This includes a new software development kit for Raspberry Pi.
The EB Guide GTF SDK for Raspberry Pi OS is available free of charge.
"We are excited to make our unique HMI development tool suite even more capable and available to a broader group of designers and developers," said Bruno Grasset, head of product management user experience at Elektrobit, in a statement. "There are more than 30 million Raspberry Pi devices in use around the world. Pairing our advanced software with the versatile, budget-friendly Raspberry Pi development platform will accelerate innovation, allowing pros and students alike to easily create the world's most advanced user interfaces."
EB Guide incorporates a complete suite of products that enables carmakers, automotive suppliers and software developers to design, test, and deploy advanced human-machine interfaces on any device, including vehicle head units, head-up displays, and instrument clusters. It enables advanced graphics, plus voice, touch screen, and gesture controls. EB Guide has been used to develop the HMI systems in more than 50 million cars on the road.
Additional enhancements in the new release include user interface updates, including a new namespace structure, a new tag filtering system for large amounts of data, the ability to export languages and skin settings, and improved access to tutorials, extensions, and examples.
