Qt announced a Linux-driven Qt Automotive Suite based on Qt for Device Creation designed for quickly developing IVI and instrument cluster GUIs.
The Qt Automotive Suite aims to save time for Qt developers who are currently duplicating efforts by designing their own automotive stacks. As described in a blog announcement from The Qt Company’s Alistair Adams, the project emerged from discussions with automotive- and Qt-focused embedded developers Pelagicore and KDAB. Realizing they could benefit from standardizing on common components for their Qt-based automotive IVI and instrument cluster designs, the three companies announced the platform last October.

The open source version of Qt Automotive Suite is available here, although as noted, v1.0 won’t arrive until later this month. Pre-built Yocto Project stacks are available for the Boundary Devices Sabre-Lite i.MX6 board and for the Nvidia DriveCX platform.
