Client Testimonials

Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover leveraged DiSTI’s HMI development software, GL Studio®, to create their InControl® Touch Pro™ infotainment and rear-seat entertainment system interfaces. GL Studio® enabled Jaguar Land Rover to create their Embedded into the Jaguar’s touch screen infotainment system serving as the user interface layer for the unit.

The InControl® Touch Pro™ display of Jaguar Land Rover needed the feature that allows its users to manage and control functions such as climate control, audio, communications, and navigation. It enables users to customize their home screen wallpaper and create personalized widgets. Adding this functionality to their InControl® Touch Pro™ display reduces driver distraction and maximizes the user experience.

The intuitive and straightforward InControl® Touch Pro™ is designed to minimize driver distraction and maximize the user experience. The adoption of GL Studio® empowered the touch screen display to react and respond to familiar ‘pinch to zoom and ‘swipe’ gestures, offering ease of use to the driver.

The highly responsive interface is delivered using GL Studio®’s native object code generation, the industry’s fastest runtime software, Quad-Core Intel Processor unit, and the 60GB SSD. The full-screen navigation display enhances the line of sight to allow drivers to focus more on the road.

DiSTI’s extensive experience working with automotive leaders enables us to deliver this revolutionary system. Jaguar Land Rover adopted and standardized DiSTI’s GL Studio® toolkit for its unmatched performance, prompt support, and ability to produce feature-rich high-quality 3D embedded applications. 

GL Studio® is strategically crafted to successfully meet and exceed internal design requirements, which is why Jaguar Land Rover leveraged GL Studio® company-wide for all embedded HMI prototyping and production target infotainment systems.

Hyundai Motor Group

The DiSTI Corporation’s HMI Development software, GL Studio®, has been adopted by Hyundai Mobis and LG Electronics to produce their 3D Infotainment User Interfaces for the automotive manufacturer KIA.

KIA’s latest 3D infotainment User Interfaces are being deployed across many KIA models. The two companies, Hyundai Mobis, and LG Electronics, are working closely with The DiSTI Corporation to leverage its GL Studio® software and cutting-edge capabilities to carry the digital in-car experience into the future.

These 3D infotainment User Interfaces aim to deliver a more intuitive user experience when using the system, which is why it was vital to utilize 3D animation. Hyundai Motor Group selected GL Studio® due to its unique benefits in terms of hardware resource use, 3D animation performance, and flexibility in developing new GUIs in the future.

The 3D user experience will enhance the luxury image of the vehicle and provide user-friendly usability to the driver. Hyundai Mobis and LG Electronics plan on utilizing GL Studio®’s expertise to develop complex 3D interfaces in their Voice User Interface for Infotainment systems. 

The specialized coding framework GL Studio® HMI development software tools allow Hyundai Mobis and LG Electronics to develop highly customized user interfaces for the Infotainment systems. Once implemented, these systems are set to be featured in all vehicles they sell across North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and other major regions.
