Forbes recently featured Mike Juran, Altia CEO, in an interview about autonomous vehicles and the role automotive GUIs will play for passengers.
The article addresses the current challenges for automotive GUIs and automotive OEMs — over-crowded displays and intensifying competition from Silicon Valley for this precious in-car real estate.
Telechips SoCs and Altia HMI Development Software Chosen for Production Automotive Clusters
Altia announces code generation support for the Telechips TCC803x (Dolphin+) and TCC897x using Altia HMI development tools and the Linux operating system. Due to the incredible code efficiency of the Altia DeepScreen target for the Telechips chip, this combined solution has been selected for instrument cluster production. The inaugural cluster program will include support for multiple themes, advanced plotting, 3D and multiple languages.
As part of their annual research about best places to live, surveyors from U.S. News asked people from all over the country where they would live if given the choice. Out of the 125 largest metro regions in the country, Colorado Springs came out on top — ranking above cities including Austin (TX), Seattle (WA), Honolulu (HI) and Denver (CO).
Altia Announces New Release of HMI Development Software with New 3D Features, On-Target FPS Indicator, Support for Emojis and More
Today, Altia announces the release of Altia Design 12.1, which includes new features and powerful improvements for developing and deploying embedded displays for production automotive, medical, consumer and industrial devices.
What is new in Altia Design 12.1?
This past weekend, Colorado Springs — home of Altia’s headquarters — hosted the 96th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. This is an annual invitational automobile and motorcycle hill climb to the summit of Pikes Peak that is held on the last Sunday in June.
The race course is a 12.42 mile (19.99 km) public toll-road with 156 total turns. The total course climb is 4,720 ft. (1,440 m.) — from the 9,390 ft. (2,862 m.) start line at the Mile 7 marker on the Pikes Peak Highway all the way to the 14,115 ft. (4,300 m) finish line at the mountain’s summit.
