Unity Technologies announced the company is collaborating with NXP Semiconductors, the world’s largest provider of automotive semiconductors, to develop a Human Machine Interface (HMI) toolchain that creates modern vehicle experiences in mass production vehicles. Operating on NXP’s i.MX 8QuadMax Applications Processor, the toolchain will give automotive manufacturers (OEMs) the ability to tap into Unity’s real-time 3D rendering technology.
The collaboration enables drivers to experience Unity-powered content — from real-time navigation and advanced visualization for self-driving vehicles to personalized driving features, 3D maps, access to Unity games and more — regardless of the vehicle trim level or cost.
Unity’s real-time 3D platform allows OEMs to shorten timelines for HMI prototype development and production and increases efficiency and speed by offering a best-in-class experience to UI/UX designers, artists, developers, and engineers. The platform also offers a unified HMI toolchain covering the full product cycle of design, prototyping, development and mass product deployment. Customizable content created by Unity’s millions of developers can also be found on the Unity Asset Store. The Unity NXP collaboration makes it easier for OEMs to bring their HMI designs to production with NXP chipsets.
