Fujitsu Announces CGI Studio - A Software Development Platform for 3D Automotive Human Machine Interfaces
Fujitsu Microelectronics Embedded Solutions Austria GmbH (FEAT) today announces CGI Studio, its independent software development platform for 3D graphical human machine interfaces (HMI/GUI), dedicated to automotive instrument clusters and infotainment systems.
CGI Studio features the 3D engine ‘Candera’ and the development tool environment ‘Scene Composer’. The package provides a continuous tool chain for the development of 3D graphical interfaces as well as the necessary software development process. The use of OpenGL ES 2.0 and a strict OS abstraction enables a high degree of hardware independence and gives the greatest possible flexibility.
The package is optimised to deliver a continuous and harmonised process flow from the Artist over Host Design down to the Target Application and covers the specific automotive requirements for optimised performance and power consumption. CGI Studio provides information on the concept feasibility for the respective platform during an early design phase. This results in rapid prototyping and decision making on relevant visual features and the required target system.
On Fujitsu’s stand at Embedded World (Hall 12, Stand 314), a demonstrator will show a state-of-the-art 3D automotive cluster on a Fujitsu proof-of-concept target hardware system for next-generation high-end cluster SoCs. Visitors can experience in real-time the new 3D HMI development platform by operating the tool and discovering the different features.
CGI Studio has been developed by Fujitsu Microelectronics Embedded Solutions Austria GmbH (FEAT) in Linz. The focus of FEAT is on worldwide automotive, industrial, and telecommunication projects. In these areas, FEAT supports its customers with its own software products as well as provision of software services.
The product range covers 2D/3D graphic engines and tooling for the automotive area, software frameworks for mobile devices as well as products for speeding-up data transfer over long distances.
FEAT also supports FME’s existing hardware and software design teams in its Automotive & Embedded Business Unit in Langen and the Graphics Competence Center in Munich, Germany.
