Create brilliant User Interfaces

One HMI tool, multiple applications...

HMI Design with CGI Studio

Candera CGI Studio is a scalable and hardware independent HMI design tool. It allows the development of innovative and customizable embedded GUI solutions of all kinds for the automotive area, industry and home appliances market. The special USP of our HMI design tool are its user-friendly interface and the high performance representation of 2D / 3D display elements and animations.

CGI Studio includes ready-to-use HMI controls, a Smart Importer, automated workflows and integrated state machines enabling to display logics and structure of any HMI with only a few clicks. The open architecture of CGI Studio allows deep integration and automatization into your company’s workflow.

Multiple GUI applications

Digital instrument clusters, head-up displays, infotainment systems (IVI) or User Interfaces for the industry or white goods market – CGI Studio is the one-stop solution for innovative HMI ideas in an ever-converging world.

Digital Instrument Clusters

CGI Studio enables the creation of unique 2D/3D automotive clusters directly to your hardware of choice and into the market – as fast as possible.

IVI and rear seat entertainment

Infotainment systems (IVI), rear seat entertainment and many more – CGI Studio is the one-stop software for all of your HMI ideas.

AR Head-up displays

With built-in warping and low latency of Candera Render Engine, CGI Studio is the perfect tool for dynamic applications like AR HuDs.

Industry and White Goods

Create brilliant GUIs for the next generation of home appliances like induction stoves, refrigerators or innovative washing machines.

HMI Development process

Building a perfect GUI is not a single step, but a process. We can assist you in every stage of this HMI development chain. CGI Studio is the perfect UI tool to create individual GUIs with your own design, while including functional safety and multi-language support.

Scene Composer

Candera Scene Composer is the central tool in the CGI Studio environment and is used to import graphical artwork from designers, create sceneries as they appear on the target system, combine sceneries with business logic, and finally to export content for the target hardware. The Scene Composer is capable to handle 2D and 3D content at ease and allows easy creation of modern HMIs and UIs including stunning animations.

Platform Support

Native support for all relevant automotive platforms



Scalable GUI from low-end 2D up to highly advanced 3D graphics rendering



Full support for OpenGL ES 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0 including extensions


Seamless automotive workflow from design to target


Highly optimized for runtime and memory performance


Integrated functional safety (ISO 26262)



Proven in many projects for
leading OEM and TIER1 customers


Very efficient variant handling for large-scale projects with a lot of different car types

Smart Importer

Based on innovative AI detection algorithm technologies, Candera’s Smart Importer has one major goal: to speed up the whole HMI development process. Indeed, whilst other HMI design tools oblige the user to manually add functionality to each single element of their UI artwork, Candera’s Smart Importer will handle this job with a supportive AI, powerful mapping and reimport features.

Candera’s Smart Importer imports graphics files into CGI Studio, detects relevant components like gauges, sliders, buttons and many more and suggests the most probable functionality to each of these elements. The user just selects the component, defines properties and imports a ready-to use and full functional HMI control.
