Elektrobit (EB) has announced its latest release of EB GUIDE toolkit that allows developers to create customised human-machine interface (HMI) systems at higher productivity. With this solution, carmakers can work on their respective HMI as a key differentiator for their own brand and make them competition-worthy, the software vendor indicated.

EB GUIDE 6 is an updated version of its HMI toolkit for the development of multimodal in-car screens with advanced graphics, plus voice-, touch screen- and gesture-based controls. Along with the release 6 the tool vendor is also announcing a new pricing and licensing model which includes a free, downloadable version, EB GUIDE Studio 6, starting August 2015.


EB GUIDE 6 represents a complete redesign of the EB GUIDE HMI development toolchain, integrating new features such as a streamlined graphical user interface that makes it easier to use by both engineers and designers alike. EB GUIDE 6 helps reduce development time and costs by enabling existing models, animations, widgets and other assets to be reused for different projects, brands or markets, simplifying the process of creating a consistent, yet customisable, look and feel. The software toolchain allows users to work in distributed projects with support for branching and merging software models, and it automatically integrates models created using previous versions of EB GUIDE software, providing an automatic migration path for assets created with EB GUIDE 5.5.

EB GUIDE 6 offers developers a choice of user interface (UI) modes, including graphical with 3D 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.

The software will be available for download free of charge at
