3-D visualization

  • 29-Jun-2010 01:14 EDT


With its HMI platform Vision2, TTTech’s TTControl offers 3-D rendering in a visualization solution for off-highway vehicles. The platform's display controller is based on the i.MX51 chip from Freescale, with a processing core that performs at up to 800 MHz. On-chip 3-D hardware acceleration allows the creation of 3-D effects such as overlapping shine-through dials, while other features include extended CAN connectivity, picture-in-picture in connection with up to four camera inputs, and USB connectors and add-on modules such as GPS. The rugged monitor is protected by an IP65-rated housing, and the feature set is customized depending on application requirements. HD resolution is supported, as is use of a dual screen, suitable when building human-machine interfaces for off-highway equipment. The initial Vision2 is 10.4 in (265 mm) with touch screen; a compact 7 in (180 mm) solution for dashboard mounting with integrated soft keys is forthcoming.
