Graphical user interfaces (GUIs) surround us in our everyday lives – with touch displays on our washing machines, thermostats and coffee makers at home and touch controls on copy machines and industrial devices at work. This trend will continue as the Internet of Things grows.
Manufacturers who want to add GUIs to their products must consider more than just hardware. A pleasing interaction between the user and the product interface is critical for product success. While implementing a GUI can involve complex relationships — between hardware, software, etc. — creating the GUI itself can be very straightforward.
Altia’s European team just published an article for our German-speaking audience in Elektronikpraxis, a German magazine for experts in electronics, about their recommendations for developing and deploying an embedded GUI – including the use of Altia’s GUI development software.
