Rapid Development and Deployment of Dynamic Graphical Human-Machine Interfaces Within Automotive Environments 2000-01-1292
Emerging ‘glass’ displays make possible the benefits of Super Integration (SI) including weight, volume, and part count reductions as well as quality, reliability, serviceability, NVH, and manufacturability improvements . This paper discusses an alternative to the hand-coding of displays aimed at facilitating the iterative development of Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs) and the rapid generation of small-footprint, high-performance embeddable code for use in development, testing, simulation, documentation, and actual product environments. The process of code generation and rehosting at the heart of this technology will be described as will the architecture of the resulting software. Implementation experience will also be cited.
