The DiSTI Corporation, a global provider of graphical user interface software and customized 3D virtual maintenance training solutions joined hands with Tata Elxsi to deliver DiSTI’s GL Studio UI products with Tata Elxsi software services.
Tata Elxsi developed their e-Cockpit demonstrator using DiSTI’s GL Studio UI Designer.
Tata Elxsi has joined DiSTI’s partner programme as a global development group of UI content creation and implementation professionals.
Showcased at CES 2017, Tata Elxsi adopted GL Studio for their e-Cockpit demonstrator for the development of the Infotainment, Cluster and HUD.
Throughout the development process, DiSTI provided UI support for the GL Studio UI Designer. The hardware used for the demonstrator is the Renesas R-Car H3 Salvatore-X board.
The demonstrator highlights both how GL Studio can seamlessly handle high performance graphics across multiple displays on a single embedded target, as well as the quality design and software implementation capabilities of Tata Elxsi.
Tony K John, Global Head of Marketing, Partnerships & Alliances, Automotive Business Unit, Tata Elxsi, said “With more and more driver assistance happening in automobiles through multiple displays, HMI and Graphics are going to play a major role and Tata Elxsi along with DiSTI are investigating futeristic ways of UX and UI implemenations in vehicles”.
DiSTI’s GL Studio UI tools are a comprehensive development suite for seamlessly creating cross platform 2D and 3D user interface content. GL Studio streamlines UI asset creation to implementation readiness in one platform without compromise.
“This partnership highlights the versatility of the GL Studio software suite and our commitment to our partners’ and customers’ success,” said Chris Giordano, DiSTI Vice President, Automotive Division.
By consuming industry standard file formats such as Photoshop and 3ds Max into the GL Studio Designer, the graphics artist’s content directly drives the user experience and the UI designer workflow significantly reduces the time to market.
