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

  • Hardware: i.MX 516, PIC32 MX795F512L
  • RTOS: Windows CE 6.0
  • Tools: Visual Studio 2005, MPLAB, Adobe CS 5.0
  • Metrics: ASPICE/CMMi Level-5 Process Compliance

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:

  • Instrument Cluster
  • Head-up Displays
  • Central Information Displays
  • Toggles, Switches and Operating Unit

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.
