EB Guide 6 is an updated version of Elektrobit’s HMI toolkit for development of advanced multimodal in-vehicle screens. (View software screenshots by clicking arrow at top right of this image.)

Elektrobit (EB) has released EB Guide 6, a software toolkit that allows automakers, Tier 1 suppliers, and developers to design and develop sophisticated, customized human-machine interface (HMI) systems. EB Guide 6 is an updated version of its HMI toolkit for the development of multimodal in-vehicle screens with advanced graphics, plus voice-, touch screen-, and gesture-based controls. A streamlined graphical user interface makes it easier to use by both engineers and designers. The toolkit helps reduce development time and costs by enabling existing models, animations, widgets, and other assets to be reused for different projects, brands, or markets. The software toolchain allows users to work in distributed projects with support for easy branching and merging software models, and it automatically integrates models created using previous versions of EB Guide software. Also suitable for avionics and industrial-automation applications, EB Guide 6 offers developers a wide choice of user interface modes, including graphical with 3-D support, animations, effects, and integration of HTML5 content; touch, multi-touch (e.g., pinch, zoom, rotate), and path gesture recognition (detection of a path drawn on a surface); and voice, with the latest speech technology. EB is announcing a new pricing and licensing model with EB Guide 6, which includes a free, downloadable version—EB Guide Studio 6—available at http://www.eb-guide.com starting mid-August 2015.
