“The touchscreen is a fundamental element of the modern automotive user interface. Designing a sophisticated, intuitive, user-focused HMI requires the right tools and methods for rapid prototyping in the automotive context,” said Derek Sellin , Vice President of Marketing and head of the Kanzi Partner Program at Rightware . “We are pleased to see innovators such as Immersion showcasing the integration of their technologies with Kanzi to continue advancing the user experience in the digital cockpit.”
This collaboration is the result of Immersion’s work to use Kanzi to design a UI for Immersion’s Haptic Design Touchscreen, Edison. The 10.1-inch HD haptic-enabled touchscreen is a design unit made to enable automotive UI designers to quickly prototype, experiment, test, and define haptic experiences during the HMI development process.
Kanzi software is used to manage the entire UX process from HMI design and development to integrating content seamlessly across operating systems within the vehicle. The product family includes a designer-oriented visual studio, a powerful 3D runtime for superior graphics performance, and an innovative connectivity platform. Kanzi affords automakers and Tier 1 suppliers faster HMI development using smaller design teams with greater creative freedom in a multi-display, connected cockpit.
