Graphical user interfaces (GUIs) surround us in our everyday lives – with touch displays on our washing machines, thermostats and coffee makers at home and touch controls on copy machines and industrial devices at work. This trend will continue as the Internet of Things grows.
Connected conversations start here.
Altia CEO, Mike Juran, recently learned about an impressive, local “social enterprise” called Blue Star Recyclers, a non-profit organization with locations in Colorado Springs, Denver, and Boulder. Their mission is two-fold: recycle electronic waste ethically and create jobs for people with autism and other disabilities.
Recycling of computers alone offers a significant impact on the economy. For every 10,000 tons of computer waste processed, 296 new jobs are created per year. Currently only 15-20 percent of global e-waste is recycled – so there is tremendous opportunity for growth in this area. With that mind, it’s easy to see why Blue Star has gained so much traction and support since they were founded in 2009.
GENIVI members will be meeting to further our work delivering IVI and connected vehicle software. Together, we will also continue to explore communication across safety, infotainment and consumer electronic software domains – an important and emerging automotive industry trend.
How do cutting-edge tech companies like Altia draw new talent to Colorado Springs?
With renowned tech centers located statewide, Colorado is a haven for software professionals who love the outdoors. Altia has a great partner in the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce, who has worked with our team to introduce new potential employees to the Springs and help them discover all the ways Altia’s hometown is such a hidden gem.
Recently, The Gazette posted an article about how Hannah Parsons, the chamber’s chief economic development officer, and Beka Adair, economic development analyst, worked with Paco Sandoval, Altia Senior Embedded Software Engineer, earlier this year as he considered relocating from Detroit.
Altia is pleased to announce their ISO 26262 engineering products and services. These offerings – ranging from safety activity monitoring software to hands-on ISO 26262 training – address the requirements for automotive OEMs and Tier 1s to provide functionally safe embedded HMIs.
