Candera exhibited its HMI creation tool CGI Studio at Automotive Engineering Exposition 2022 Yokohama

Candera exhibited its latest demos at Automotive Engineering Exposition 2022 Yokohama and the corresponding online exposition.

Details about Candera’s booth and demos presented:

Started in 1992, the Automotive Engineering Exposition is a trade show for researchers and engineers at the forefront of the automotive industry looking to show their newest technology and products to the world.

At the Candera booth we showed off a new demo made in collaboration with NXP Semiconductors. The demo features a meter cluster which combines 2D and 3D elements, made using CGI Studio 3.10 for NXP’s i.MX 8QM processors. Telltales and text indicating speed and driving mode are achieved via the G2D API of the Safe Critical Functional Safety part of NXP’s Arm® Cortex®-M4F core. The 3D cluster and gauges are made possible by the OpenGL ES A53 core.

Another demo that caught the eye of many attendees was our “Optimization of HMI Development with CGI Studio and Simulink®”. This demo links an HMI application made in CGI Studio with MathWorks’ numerical analysis software Simulink. Many clients in the automotive industry using Candera’s products also use Simulink in the development of their HMIs and GUIs, and as a model base when developing with CGI Studio. As requested by our users, we at Candera developed this new collaborative demo in partnership with MathWorks.

Using CGI Studio, users can easily define inputs and outputs to and from Simulink. In doing so, necessary artifacts will be automatically generated, and with that, the HMI created in CGI Studio can be easily connected to Simulink and Stateflow®. After that, by using Simulink Test™ and Image Processing Toolbox™, one can automate the baseline verification of the HMI screen transition logic. One can also easily check the implementation and verification status of each requirement with the use of Requirements Toolbox™.

Aside from these, attendees of the event also got to see demos of CGI Studio made in partnership with Renesas Electronics Corporation and Siemens EDA.

With over 20 years of experience in embedded software development, Candera offers a customizable product for our broad customer base. We work closely together with our customers and industry partners to provide solutions for both current and future HMI needs.
