Create next-gen, future-proof HMI experiences

Seamlessly connect your human-machine interface (HMI) development processes and extend the power of real-time rendering across all types of HMI screens, including infotainment systems, digital instrument clusters, and augmented reality-powered head-up displays (HUDs).

Reimagining in-car navigation experiences

We’ve teamed up with HERE Technologies – check out our shared vision for the future of embedded automotive human machine interfaces (HMIs) in a new demo made with Unity and HERE 3D city data.

From design to display with no compromise

Unity offers a lossless solution in the design to production HMI workflow, enabling the creation of safe, stunning, interactive experiences for in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems and digital cockpits. With Unity, what you design is what you get.

"Unity brings an optimized content rendering engine, content creation and toolchains which can be utilized to work with stretch screens and "normal" resolution screens alike. The output of this powerful engine is stunning display experiences that have to be seen. Coupled with i.MX 8QuadMax’s performance and fail-functional display safety capabilities provide the consumer with a seamless, beautiful and safe experience."

“Unity offers an incredible advantage to designers by allowing them to develop an interactive HMI for a target system, and then experience the near-final output and actual performance long before deployment."

Why power your HMI with Unity

Accelerated UI prototyping

Unity’s HMI Toolkit reduces the time to set up a baseline HMI configuration. You can also build your UI faster with common UI elements provided in the toolkit – including dials, buttons, text, glyphs; scrollable lists and progress bars; images and video feeds; and UI masking – all of which can be customized based on design preferences.

WYSIWYG development

Real-time rendering helps you iterate faster and reduce your production time by enabling 3D visualization (what you see is what you get) and effortless collaboration throughout the HMI design and review phases. And your projects are directly deployable to your embedded target, so you don’t have to recreate the HMI multiple times.

Performant and scalable graphics

Take advantage of Unity’s powerful rendering solution. The Universal Render Pipeline offers a full suite of artist tools for content creation. It’s the optimal choice for deploying to all platforms that Unity supports – with best-in-class visual quality and performance.

Deployment without compromise

Deploy stunning experiences to your unique combination of hardware and operating system (OS). Unity offers platform licensing to establish and maintain support for your preferred target, including popular SoCs from NXP, Qualcomm, NVIDIA and others, and OS such as Linux, Android and QNX. Contact a Unity representative for more details.

Long-term system support

We offer custom programs to provide long-term support for industrial applications. Unity offers start-up assistance to help you get to market faster, and can support your deployed systems for the long haul. Unity is more than a vendor - Unity is a partner that is invested in your success.

Thousands of free and affordable assets

Speed up your HMI development. For prototyping or production, save critical time and effort with quality art and tools from the Unity Asset Store, contributed by Unity’s six-million-strong developer community.
