The company

Delphi is a leading global supplier of electronics and technologies for the automotive segment, commercial vehicle segment, and other market segments. Operating major technical centers, manufacturing sites, and customer support facilities in 30 countries, Delphi delivers real-world innovations that make products smarter and safer as well as more powerful and efficient.

The challenge

Delphi was looking for an innovative solution to implement an automatic code generation process for the human machine interface (HMI) of radios for Volkswagen. The input for the code generation was delivered in machine-readable form in a proprietary XML format. Elektrobit had to handle an enormous number of variants for different countries and brands.

The solution

Elektrobit developed the HMI software and implemented a plug-in to import the customer-specific XML into EB GUIDE Studio.


Quotation from Dr. Wilhelm Steger

Managing Director Infotainment & Driver Interface Europe, Delphi

“For such complex radio HMI development, time and costs were shortened, higher flexibility with regards to maintenance and feature upgrades has been reached through automatic code generation with EB GUIDE Graphics Target Framework.”


The benefit

Delphi benefited from Elektrobit’s in-depth HMI knowledge in automotive HMI development and Volkswagen- specific XML variants. By using EB GUIDE Studio, Delphi could perform error analysis, test features and already experience them before implementation.
