Qt takes the driver’s seat in Peugeot’s new concept
Peugeot has selected Finnish software company Qt’s digital development platform for its new e-Legend concept car’s digital cockpit.
The e-Legend concept was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show last week, with Qt announcing that Peugeot will use its cross-platform software development framework for the car’s digital cockpit. The car’s exteriors are inspired by the Peugeot 504 coupé, but beneath the classic surface hides a fully digital core that features an autonomous driving mode and runs on a 340kW electric drivetrain.
“We are thrilled to work with one of the world’s leading automotive manufacturers in developing a digital cockpit that goes hand-in-hand with the comprehensive innovation behind the Peugeot e-Legend concept,” says Tero Marjamäki, head of automotive at Qt.
The company’s platform will enable Peugeot to integrate all of e-Legend’s inner goodies, which include 16 screens, a retracting steering wheel and a 49-inch centre screen, into a functional and immersive next-generation driving experience.
“As the cars of tomorrow evolve to adapt to the digital era of today, the driver experience must follow suit. With Qt’s technology, Peugeot ensures the digital cockpit in the driver’s seat is as advanced as the technology under the hood, setting the stage for the driving experience of the future,” continues Marjamäki.
Qt employs over 300 people, is present in 12 countries and does business in over 70 industries, including in medical devices.
