TomTom Automotive HMIs are Built with Qt


We want to make our car to be a flagship
of our technology – of what we can achieve.
So, we want to make all of the data
available for the user, adjustable by the user
and let them have the most experience out of it.
So, we didn’t want to just put technology in the car.
We want to make computers with wheels.
And that’s what we do!
And the other OEMs find that interesting and
they just want a piece of our technology.
We’re collaborating with the Aston Martin Valkyrie project,
Pininfarina of the big Pininfarina project,
with Renault, with Koenigsegg…
The amazing thing about Qt is that we can easily
make our own design wishes happen in a matter of no time.
So, Qt makes us really flexible with regards
to developing our UI for the various projects
and Qt is really flexible with integrating new features that we have.
It really has an ear for the automotive industry
and that’s why I think that it’s a really amazing cooperation with Qt.
So basically, we set up our development story
in a sense that we are developing components in C++
that could be reusable for numerous projects.
So, we’re actually building our own module blocks
and then just reskin them for other projects using Qt QML.
And that’s what makes it easier,
so we don’t have to develop the whole system from scratch every time
but we have the core back-end for every module
and then we just make another UI.
We have tried numerous technologies to develop with,
but Qt is really beating them all by far
and that’s the way to go!
