QtWS17 - System-on-Modules HMI and M2M solutions development, Rimac Automobili, Toradex
In this talk, we will demonstrate how the use of a powerfull and feature-rich System-on-Module (SoM) allows you to quickly scale and adapt to ever-changing requirements of your industry. A use-case will be presented by Rimac, the manufacturer of the world’s fastest electric supercar. We will explain how the Embedded Linux OS (Boot2Qt) provided by Toradex and Qt is leveraged to create two flagship products of the Rimac Automobili software development department: our M2M and HMI solution. By buliding on top of the Apalis iMX6 SoM based on the NXP i.MX 6 SoC, and the Boot2Qt software stack for NXP i.MX 6, we have managed to create a family of HW and SW solutions tailored to various applications in the automotive sector. The applications include monitoring and transfering data in near-realtime from the vehicle to the engineers at the factory, presenting vehicle data to the driver through a smartphone, remote control of the vehicle via Internet, developing exciting and feature-rich instrument-clusters and IVI screens and overall achieving a fully customisable and connected car.
