By leveraging our expertise in automotive systems for design & development, we developed a Digital Instrument Cluster that helped our customer introduce next generation systems to market ahead of their competitors. Learn how.
Infotainment System & IC
The customer, whose main expertise was in mechanical and electrical instrumentation manufacturing, was looking for a partner to support them with embedded/ software instrumentation. They were on the lookout for someone who was flexible to support/service existing products as well as design and develop new generation marine instrumentation products. One of the major qualities they were looking for was an ability to advise on industrial design and manufacturability of products based on the existing marine technology trends and take up low/ mid volume manufacturing of products.
The project team fully leveraged the expertise in automotive systems for design & development and get design inputs and suggestions from experienced User Experience (GUI) team. The team then discussed on product specification, design and development of IC system and decided to go with Adobe Flash based UI development.
Technologies used for this project
The team also got in touch with the Mechanicals & Enclosure division at QuEST and took enclosure design and modeling inputs & ideas. They also took Design for Manufacturability inputs from our manufacturing division.
The team then developed HMI concepts and screens for:
After completion of the project, the team managed environmental testing and provided product certifications support. They also ensured compliance to current specified policies/guidelines (AAM/NHTSA/JAMA) for various markets.
QuEST enabled the customer to introduce next generation systems to market ahead of their competitors. We also gained the ability to sustain product within ODC, without an in-house customer software development team. The project team was also able to ensure absolute minimum new product turn-around time.
