LAS VEGAS, January 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

New extension allows car manufacturers to use a single HMI toolchain for all car segments

Rightware, the leading provider of user interface creation software for the automotive industry, announced today Kanzi Lite, an extension to its industry-leading Kanzi® HMI (Human-Machine Interface) design and development software. The new extension will enable car manufacturers and Tier 1s to use Kanzi® as an HMI software platform for instrument clusters and infotainment screens in all car segments.

With the new Kanzi Lite extension, customers are able to use Kanzi® for all types of automotive and embedded hardware platforms, from low-end microcontroller units (MCU's) using proprietary graphics acceleration protocols to high-end System-on-a-Chips (SoCs) using standard graphics API's such as OpenGL ES 2.0. Designers are now able to build HMIs for various car segments using the same designer-oriented Kanzi Studio tool, while engineers have access to the robust Kanzi Engine with its APIs and UI framework.
