As Seen in Times Square

Overcoming the incredible complexity of autonomous driving requires massive computing power and unprecedented intelligence. EB has teamed up with industry leaders Infineon and NVIDIA to offer a solution: an integrated technology platform that combines powerful computing with safety-critical software to make autonomous driving a reality. Find out more about the team’s efforts.

Why Use Model-Based Human Machine Interface (HMI) Development?

Many HMI developers write code from scratch, which typically involves needless effort and significant time outlay. But there’s another way: by utilizing the model-based HMI development approach, developers can build a prototype, develop a complete HMI, run simulations, manage variants, and change the look and feel of the HMI to suit multiple brands and versions—without a lot of coding, and in a much shorter time. Read this blog post from Martin Riedl to learn more about this innovative approach and how EB GUIDE 6 can assist.
