5-inch CANbus Display gets Qt

February 29, 2016 10:43 AM

Grayhill, Inc. now offers OEMs a kit for developing applications in Qt to run on their Series 3D50 Display. Qt is widely used for developing applications because it is device agnostic, running one code set on many different hardware and software platforms. Grayhill has chosen to offer this option to their customers because Qt has many tools for creating a custom user interface design.

Grayhill understands the importance of the user experience when an operator interacts with a display in an agriculture or construction vehicle. In these situations, the operator needs an intuitive application that won’t distract from the task at hand. Vehicle OEMs want a well-designed and branded application that conveys the competence on which their reputation was built. Qt can help the application developer achieve these objectives by offering tools for developing a rich graphical user interface. With QT, developers can build powerful cross-platform applications with a modular C++ class library and a professional Integrated Development Environment. They can design a rich Graphical User Interfaces with Qt Widgets or use declarative CSS & a JavaScript-like UI language. These modules and add-on’s include API’s for data visualization and visual editors with drag-and-drop functionality.

Qt is also a safe choice for making applications future-proof. As one of the most widely deployed cross-platform development frameworks, Qt has a user base of over 800,000 developers. Because of this, there are many resources available for training and collaborative problem solving. Qt also offers professional support and community forums.

Grayhill has made it very easy to start developing applications for their Series 3D50 Display using Qt. With the purchase of a Software Development Kit (part 3D50DEV-100), the recipient will gain access to guides for setting up the hardware and installing the software as well as the core Qt module. The Series 3D50 SDK includes a Series 3D50 touchscreen display in a simple mount for desktop use. The mount holds a PC board with standard connections for CAN communications, as well as I/O and video camera inputs. A USB to CAN-bus adapter with cables are included for easy PC connectivity.
