Pelagicore Announces Integration of NVIDIA UI Composer and Qt

Pelagicore AB, a leader in Open Source automotive software and key GENIVI Alliance contributor, announced today the integration of NVIDIA UI Composer Studio (http://www.nvidia.com/object/ui-composer-studio.html) and Qt® on the NVIDIA Tegra K1 platform for next generation automotive infotainment systems.

The innovative new Tegra K1 processor (http://nvidianews.nvidia.com/News/NVIDIA-Slides-Supercomputing-Technology-Into-the-Car-With-Tegra-K1-a8b.aspx) features the same high-performance, power-efficient NVIDIA Kepler™-based GPU architecture that drives the world's most powerful supercomputers and PC gaming systems. This means you can now count on even more unbelievable graphics performance, powerful computing, and truly unique features in every Tegra K1-powered mobile device.

NVIDIA UI Composer Studio is a groundbreaking HMI design tool used for instrument clusters and infotainment systems. Developed by NVIDIA, it's used by automakers and Tier 1 automotive suppliers to rapidly develop proof of concepts for evaluation, market research, usability testing, and ultimately final production.

Pelagicore’s integration of UI Composer and Qt combines photorealistic 3D graphics with pixel-perfect 2D graphical user interfaces on NVIDIA’s Tegra K1 processors. This allows highly integrated blending and controlling of UI Composer scenes by Qt applications.

At the 10th GENIVI All Members Meeting in Gothenburg, Sweden, Pelagicore has demonstrated its automotive reference user interface written in Qt and UI Composer, running on Pelagicore’s PELUX® HeadUnit GENIVI compliant software stack and NVIDIA Tegra K1 hardware. The demonstrator set-up includes photorealistic 3D rendering of car status information seamlessly integrated into a Qt user interface, full-HD video playback and a preview of how to enable downloadable apps in a GENIVI system.

Pelagicore has been developing and promoting automotive technologies as well as specifications for Open Source infotainment systems since 2009 as a member of the GENIVI Alliance, the AVnu Alliance and the OPEN Alliance. With its unique mix of automotive technologists and Open Source community experts, Pelagicore helps OEMs, Tier-1 suppliers, and technology partners to leverage Open Source Software and adopt new open technologies such as Yocto, Wayland and Qt.

As one of the largest automotive semiconductor suppliers and a core member of the GENIVI alliance, NVIDIA is delivering hardware and software technologies that are redefining the digital cockpit, making cars more enjoyable and safer to drive. The Tegra K1 processor integrates an energy efficient multi-core CPU with a 192-core GPU, making it ideal for use in running multimedia applications, including next-generation IVI systems, as well as advanced driver assistance systems.

“Pelagicore supports its customers in the deployment of stunning user experiences in their cars. We strive to engage designers and connect the creative minds to what is technically possible. We focus on the combination of the best tools with optimized software architecture – from pixel to silicon”, says Alwin Bakkenes, CEO of Pelagicore. “We are excited to work with NVIDIA and to bring Qt and UI Composer and its outstanding graphics performance on the NVIDIA Tegra K1 hardware platform to the market.“

"The ability to bring rich 3D graphics with photorealistic rendering enables automakers to deliver a premium quality in-vehicle experience", says Sahin Kirtavit, Senior Director Software, Automotive of NVIDIA. "Our collaboration with Pelagicore enables the benefits of NVIDIA UI Composer design software to be integrated with mature HMI tools such as Qt."
