Land Rover develops the 2017 Evoque touch screen infotainment system with DiSTI‚Äôs user interface software, GL Studio
Orlando, FL (February 2, 2017) – The DiSTI Corporation, a leading provider of graphical user interface development software to the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries announces the use of its GL Studio¬ģ software in production for the 2017 Land Rover Evoque Convertible ¬†InControl¬© Touch Pro‚ĄĘ infotainment system. Embedded into the Evoque‚Äôs 10.2‚ÄĚ touch screen infotainment system, GL Studio serves as the user interface layer for the unit.
The world‚Äôs first luxury compact SUV convertible, the 2017 Land Rover Evoque Convertible features the next-generation InControl infotainment suite which carries enhanced smartphone apps that will lock and unlock the doors, start the engine, and adjust the dual-zone automatic climate control. Jaguar Land Rover used GL Studio for the creation of the infotainment and rear seat entertainment system interfaces. These interfaces were conceived entirely in-house at Land Rover. The Evoque‚Äôs 10.2‚ÄĚ tablet-like display comes with a 21:9 aspect ratio and allows users to experience features such as route and destination planning, door to door routing, interactive direct interaction and voice control, and over 60 customized shortcuts and widgets. The simple and intuitive InControl Touch Pro, featuring GL Studio, enables the touch screen display to respond to common ‚Äėpinch to zoom‚Äô and ‚Äėswipe‚Äô gestures to provide ease of use for drivers.
‚ÄúGL Studio helps to provide users with a clean and seamless user interface experience with outstanding performance,‚ÄĚ said Christopher Giordano, Vice President of DiSTI‚Äôs Automotive Division and DiSTI‚Äôs JLR Program Manager. ¬†¬†‚ÄúThe InControl Touch Pro¬† is cutting edge, and we are excited to be a part of Land Rover‚Äôs game-changing Infotainment platforms.‚ÄĚ
The highly responsive interface comes from GL Studio‚Äôs native object code generation and the fastest runtime software in the industry. DiSTI will be highlighting the latest release of GL Studio at the Embedded World Conference this March in Germany.
DiSTI worked with Jaguar Land Rover and their other industry leading Tier 1 suppliers to deliver this revolutionary system. After a highly competitive year-long evaluation process, Jaguar Land Rover adopted and standardized on DiSTI‚Äôs GL Studio toolkit for its unmatched performance, flexibility, rapid support, and ability to produce feature rich high quality 3D embedded applications. Strategically crafted to successfully meet or exceed internal design demands, Jaguar Land Rover implemented the use of GL Studio company-wide for all embedded HMI prototyping and production target Infotainment and Rear Seat Entertainment systems.
