Take control of your HMI

There are millions of cars on the road today featuring Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs) developed by Luxoft.

Key to our successful HMI deployments is Populus – a complete tool chain for rapid HMI design, development and deployment.

Our software suite makes it possible to create robust, eye-catching, animation-rich HMI in a seamless and intuitive way that slashes development time and costs.

Populus Simplifies HMI Development

Our expertise in the global automotive sector is perfectly showcased in our Populus Suite.

Populus offers a WYSIWYG approach where an HMI design is created and verified in the Populus Editor without having to write any software, thus reducing development and test efforts.

For low-end hardware platforms, Populus enables optimum performance. Alternatively, for high-end platforms, the highest quality is realized through a modular approach that adds capabilities to the core engine.

Design With the End User in Mind

Populus Suite enables you or your team to swiftly produce a high-end HMI design in a cost-effective way.

Easily create layouts and logic in an XML database using Populus Editor, without the need to write software.

In our fully visual environment, you're ready to formulate an innovation-rich in-car experience. No coding is necessary and you're supported through all stages of development, with the intuitive editor converting the HMI database to a compressed binary format.

Aimed at being as convenient and efficient as possible, Populus Editor depicts the HMI in the same way the user will see it in the end product.
