The DiSTI Cor­po­ra­tion, a lead­ing provider of graph­i­cal user in­ter­face soft­ware and cus­tomised 3D vir­tual main­te­nance train­ing so­lu­tions, has en­tered into a strate­gic part­ner­ship with Tata Elxsi to de­liver DiSTI’s GL Stu­dio UI prod­ucts with Tata Elxsi soft­ware ser­vices. Tata Elxsi de­vel­oped the e-Cock­pit demon­stra­tor us­ing DiSTI’s GL Stu­dio UI De­signer.

Tata Elxsi has joined DiSTI’s part­ner pro­gramme as a sea­soned global de­vel­op­ment group of UI con­tent cre­ation and im­ple­men­ta­tion pro­fes­sion­als. Show­cased dur­ing CES 2017 in Jan­uary, Tata Elxsi adopted GL Stu­dio for the e-Cock­pit demon­stra­tor for the de­vel­op­ment of the In­fo­tain­ment, Clus­ter and HUD. Through­out the de­vel­op­ment process, DiSTI pro­vided UI sup­port for the GL Stu­dio UI De­signer. The hard­ware used for the demon­stra­tor is the Re­ne­sas R-Car H3 Sal­va­tore-X board. The demon­stra­tor high­lights both how GL Stu­dio can seam­lessly han­dle high per­for­mance graph­ics across mul­ti­ple dis­plays on a sin­gle em­bed­ded tar­get, as well as the qual­ity de­sign and soft­ware im­ple­men­ta­tion ca­pa­bil­i­ties of Tata Elxsi.

“This part­ner­ship high­lights the ver­sa­til­ity of the GL Stu­dio soft­ware suite and our com­mit­ment to our part­ners’ and cus­tomers’ success,” Chris Gior­dano, DiSTI Vice Pres­i­dent, Au­to­mo­tive Di­vi­sion, said. “DiSTI is hon­oured to col­lab­o­rate with Tata Elxsi on this pro­ject, and we look for­ward to a long and mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial re­la­tion­ship with them,” he said.

DiSTI’s GL Stu­dio UI tools are a com­pre­hen­sive de­vel­op­ment suite for seam­lessly cre­at­ing cross plat­form 2D and 3D user in­ter­face con­tent. GL Stu­dio stream­lines UI as­set cre­ation to im­ple­men­ta­tion readi­ness in one plat­form with­out com­pro­mise. By con­sum­ing in­dus­try stan­dard file for­mats such as Pho­to­shop and 3Ds Max into the GL Stu­dio De­signer, the graph­ics artist’s con­tent di­rectly drives the user ex­pe­ri­ence and the UI de­signer work­flow sig­nif­i­cantly re­duces the time to mar­ket.

“With more and more driver as­sis­tance hap­pen­ing in au­to­mo­biles through mul­ti­ple dis­plays, HMI and Graph­ics are go­ing to play a ma­jor role and Tata Elxsi along with DiSTI are in­ves­ti­gat­ing fu­tur­is­tic ways of UX and UI im­ple­me­na­tions in ve­hi­cles,” Tony K John, Global Head of Mar­ket­ing, Part­ner­ships & Al­liances, Au­to­mo­tive Busi­ness Unit, Tata Elxsi, said.

Its flag­ship prod­uct, GL Stu­dio, de­liv­ers ad­vanced high­per­for­mance 3D user in­ter­faces to the aero­space, au­to­mo­tive, med­i­cal, and train­ing in­dus­tries. Jaguar Land Rover, Boe­ing, and Lock­heed Martin choose GL Stu­dio for its per­for­mance, fi­delity, and re­li­a­bil­ity in in­ter­face de­vel­op­ment and de­ploy­ment. Whether for avion­ics, in­stru­ment clus­ters, in­fo­tain­ment sys­tems, med­i­cal de­vices, or flight sim­u­la­tors, GL Stu­dio ex­ceeds the de­vel­op­ers in­ter­face de­mands.

DiSTI’s user in­ter­face tech­nol­ogy also ex­pands into 3D vir­tual main­te­nance train­ing. DiSTI’s VE Stu­dio is a proven process and toolset for man­ag­ing the de­vel­op­ment of com­plex vir­tual en­vi­ron­ments for use in 3D main­te­nance and task train­ing ap­pli­ca­tions. VE Stu­dio man­ages the en­tire de­vel­op­ment process in­clud­ing re­quire­ments anal­y­sis, con­tent de­vel­op­ment, au­to­mated soft­ware builds, and au­to­mated re­gres­sion test­ing.

Tata Elxsi is a lead­ing global tech­nol­ogy and de­sign ser­vices provider, ad­dress­ing the au­to­mo­tive, broad­cast, com­mu­ni­ca­tions, con­sumer elec­tron­ics and health­care in­dus­tries.

It is a pre­ferred part­ner for lead­ing au­to­mo­tive OEMs and sup­pli­ers across the world, com­bin­ing award win­ning de­sign and UX ca­pa­bil­ity with deep tech­nol­ogy ex­pe­ri­ence of over 20 years in au­to­mo­tive soft­ware and sys­tem de­sign, and do­main ex­per­tise in au­to­mo­tive elec­tron­ics, con­nected cars, ac­tive safety and se­cu­rity.

This is sup­ported by a net­work of de­sign stu­dios and de­vel­op­ment cen­tres across the world, Au­to­mo­tive SPICE Level 5 cer­ti­fied qual­ity pro­cesses, and cen­tres of ex­cel­lence for dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies in­clud­ing IoT and an­a­lyt­ics.
