Over the past few years, Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs) have revolutionized the industrial experience, playing a pioneering role in transforming ‘automation’ from noise into reality. From vending machines, infotainment kiosks, smart factories and automotive solutions, HMIs have become an integral part of everything ‘smart’. Advances in technology have contributed to a more practical and interactive experience. Good User Experience (UX) is enhanced through good HMI and creates product value and differentiation. The value of HMI is largely based on an easy-to-use interactive design that emphasizes best practices for an optimal user experience. A good product experience is the result of a good user experience, which is based on the user interface. Good UX maintains customer loyalty and is an essential building block for a product’s long-term success. What defines a good user experience? UX Designs must always ensure that they meet users’ needs and provide a positive and enjoyable user experience. Good design focuses on results; The great design focuses on the user experience. Great user experience characteristics are: avoiding unnecessary visual elements (few screens; avoiding transitions and animations) intuitive (clear indication of next steps and interactive experience) inclusive (ensuring “designed for everyone” ease of use) minimizing readability (containing graphic representations and graphic information messages) , Including sound, bold symbols, and color) Reducing cognitive load through consistency (consistency in patterns, colors, and elements, followed by a seamless transition) How does iWave HMI deliver a good user experience? While designing the HMI solution, iWave took into consideration the goals, priorities and experiences of its customers who have market share in smart vending machines, interactive kiosks, smart homes, industrial automation, entertainment information for cars, and connected healthcare. To enable a rich user experience, the company has integrated design elements across hardware components, a range of industrial interfaces, wireless options, interactive touch screens, robust attachments, and comprehensive software support. To meet diverse application needs and enable flexibility for hassle-free system integration, iWave enables HMI with Linux and Android OS variants. All interfaces are integrated into the pre-installed software and can be used directly. IWave has adapted OS platforms with pre-installed open source GUI libraries (Qt / Java / HTML5) to enable easy development of GUI applications. The large number of libraries available makes a simple configuration for starting the HMI application. Well developed SDK with cross compiler reduces developer workload and complexity, thus speeding up time to market. IWave has partnered with Crank to provide an On-Demand Rich Crank GUI Engine. Depending on customer requirements, pre-installed software can be expanded to support additional libraries and applications. An informative user guide for GUI and other applications along with extensive technical support from an experienced design service team guides users, minimizes risks, and assists in the rapid development of their applications. Developing a GUI on iWave HMII is very easy for a user to create a rich and interactive GUI on iWave’s HMI platform. All you need is the content of the GUI page and proficiency in the GUI developer tool. The GUI developer tool instantly helps create the GUI pages along with interface procedures and custom GUI images for various end applications requirements. The source code is generated by a GUI developer tool, which is cross-assembled to create programmable binaries. Then the generated application binary is copied to the target HMI using simple USB / Ethernet. Conclusion Good UX plays an important role in product value creation and product differentiation. With over 20 years of industry experience designing and manufacturing embedded platforms, iWave builds on its expertise in building and enhancing user experience as a key differentiator of its offerings. IWave enables customers to focus on their core competencies by being a reliable technology partner and providing a reliable and robust solution.
