Luxoft, a leading global provider of advanced application and product development services, announced its newest automotive software platform, LUXdash, at Detroit Telematics 2010, the industry’s largest telematics conference, exhibition and awards event. LUXdash is an ergonomic, intuitive, multi-functional device that eliminates the need for disparate devices that can distract a driver’s attention.
LUXdash, a ‘smart dashboard,’ replaces traditional analog car dashboards with LCD screens, which display regular indicators and instruments as well as mode-specific vehicle information and infotainment controls. The cost-effective solution combines dashboard and infotainment functions into one location and can be integrated into a wide range of cars and motorcycles, not just luxury cars.
With LUXdash, users now have access to a multitude of functionalities besides the conventional dashboard gauges. That includes GPS navigation, infotainment control, car diagnostics and hands-free telephone access. The software product platform is based on popular open interfaces and open source solutions, such as Linux and Qt. It is portable to a wide variety of ARM and X86-based hardware platforms.
“With a smart dashboard like LUXdash, you see in front of you what you want to see when you want to see it,” said Michael Minkevich, VP Technology Services of Luxoft. “This solution is ideal for implementing new generation multimedia and infotainment devices as multi-mode vehicle dashboards. It provides the driver with all the necessary information environments, and does so with minimum attention diversion.”
Luxoft will be promoting its innovative work in the automotive industry at the 10th annual Detroit Telematics event, June 8th and 9th, at booth 31 of the Rock Financial Showplace. Demonstrations of LUXdash will also be available.
