Abstract [en]

Industry machines and vehicles are becoming more and more advanced, leading to increased complexity of the systems for controlling these machines. As a step to increase operator support and awareness to increase uptime and efficiency of these machines it is common that these systems make use of a display unit to present information and to enable the operator to interact with the control system. In such case a graphical user interface (GUI) becomes a central part of enhancing the operators ability to maneuver the machine.

CrossControl develops advanced electronics and control systems for industrial machines and vehicles operated in rough environments. As a step to improve their capabilities to create sophisticated GUIs they are investigating the option of using Qt as a development tool for GUIs.

Qt is a open source C++ framework for crossplatform software development. This thesis aim to evaluate Qt’s capabilities for development of reusable graphical components to ease future development of applications for control systems in an embedded environment. Also a system architecture is proposed for how Qt GUI components could be connected to signals from different nodes in a CAN-network. A prototype is implemented to prove the concept of the suggested architecture. Propositions for how to further improve the GUI development platform beyond the scope of this thesis is also presented.
