The IData® Tool Suite is a tool-based Human Machine Interface (HMI) application development and deployment environment. It offers unmatched advanced features for designing powerful HMI applications that can run on most target platforms. Using IData’s innovative technology, developers can create HMI applications for a countless number of end-user projects.
IData has been developed to follow the strict safety-critical standards for commercial aircraft cockpit design. With its 2-D and 3-D plugins, designers can easily create situational awareness displays with digital maps, and Primary Flight Displays (PFDs) with Synthetic Vision, and know the displays will meet the rigors of DO-178B/C with the use of IData’s Certification Documentation set for the IData Runtime.
IData is ideally suited for digital and analog instrumentation, flat-panel display symbology, heads-up displays or HUDs, interactive virtual consoles, tactical digital map displays, and immersive training. The powerful development environment dramatically shortens development time for embedded cockpit displays, flight simulators, aircraft trainers, and can be used in “man in the loop” scenarios to measure stimuli responses.
Command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (C4ISR) systems, whether for situational awareness or unmanned vehicle control, require powerful digital maps, 3-D terrain, standard symbology sets, flexible symbology overlays, video handling, and powerful user interaction. IData offers developers comprehensive built-in capabilities to create tomorrow’s C4ISR systems, such as full-alpha blending and automatic geo-registration of models when draping charts over 3-D terrain.
Whether on a shop floor, in a factory, or a distribution center, automation and monitoring of processes are important to a successful and efficient working environment. IData provides specialized tools, such as, the test data generator, to easily drive the monitoring devices of the user’s system and to test new designs and processes before they are implemented on the shop floor. Deploying touch interactive displays, interactive graphics, flexible data inputs, single screen, or networked display systems, and portability to low cost or handheld platforms, IData will address the systems ergonomic requirements.
The origins of the IData Tool Suite stemmed from the need to easily create high performance and highly reliable cockpit displays. The same rigorous behavioral graphics are needed by the transportation industry. With IData’s integrated map and 3-D imagery, destination routing and re-routing can be sent to the associated displays for the driver or dispatcher as required. Because of the extreme performance of the deployed display system, many fleet vehicles can be tracked and displayed simultaneously using IData. Full-tabular data that displays weights and measures, bills of lading, and local tolls and tariffs can be displayed and updated as needed.
