The Qt Company announced that high-performance hypercar manufacturer Koenigsegg Automotive AB has selected Qt’s cross platform framework for the development of its in-vehicle infotainment systems and instrument clusters. Qt supports software development of Koenigsegg’s SmartCenter, SmartWheel and SmartCluster products. SmartCenter and SmartWheel are used in the Jesko hypercar, whereas SmartCenter and SmartCluster products are used in Koenigsegg’s Agera RS and Regera hypercars.

Qt’s framework enables Koenigsegg to optimize the development and production of its next-generation premium IVI systems. Qt provides a streamlined development workflow from graphic designer to software developer, significantly reducing time-to-market, as well as the number of mock-up prototype iterations. Qt’s framework also enables Koenigsegg to reuse features and assets across multiple cross-platform projects.

Koenigsegg’s Jesko hypercar model features a new, racing-inspired SmartCluster instrument screen developed with Qt. The screen is mounted directly behind the steering wheel and while the screen physically rotates with the steering wheel, the central zone – and the key information within it always remains at level as the steering wheel turns. The SmartCluster’s compact, five-inch (108×64.8mm) screen displays all the information the driver needs in a neat, logical layout. The SmartCluster marries the IVI system with the car’s key instruments, including the speedometer, which are displayed with a digital readout instead of traditional analog gauges.

Mr Juhapekka Niemi, Executive Vice President sales at that The Qt Company said that “The driver experience is evolving from a physical steering wheel and centralized dashboard to multi-screen displays with a variety of connectivity and features. Qt enables Koenigsegg’s IVI product suite to provide one unified, streamlined user experience across multiple screens, seamlessly putting a wealth of features at the driver’s fingertips while maintaining the ease of use necessary to keep the driver’s focus on the road.”
