Candera and MyScript have integrated MyScript’s award-winning Handwriting recognition technology into Candera’s CGI Studio HMI design tool.


LINZ, AUSTRIA; NANTES, FRANCE – July 19, 2022 – Candera and MyScript have joined forces to offer an easy integration of their leading technologies. The companies collaborated to provide a pre-integration of Candera’s CGI Studio HMI design tool with MyScript’s pioneering handwriting recognition engine. This allows Candera and MyScript customers to benefit from an “out of the box” solution and enjoy the latest innovations from both companies.

MyScript provides CGI Studio with an innovative input method that reduces driver distraction

As an in-car input method for touch-enabled screens, handwriting recognition has been shown to reduce driver distraction, with over 20 million cars on the road already integrating MyScript technology.

Handwriting recognition allows drivers to scribble commands on the screen of their vehicle’s multimedia system without taking their eyes from the road. This method has been tested and validated in the world’s most demanding regulatory environments, from the USA and Europe to Japan.

In addition,  MyScript’s technology is unique because it adapts to the user, rather than requiring the user to adapt to it. This reduces the cognitive load on the driver; there is no need to think about or look at the written inputs to achieve accurate results.

Drivers can write as they wish: letter by letter, in cursive or print, and even by superimposing characters and words on top of each other. MyScript’s technology performs the “magic trick” of transforming drivers’ scribbles into intelligible words – and the actions to which they refer.


“We are looking forward to working with our MyScript partners to support our customers in building brilliant and safe HMI solutions”, says Reinhard Füricht, CEO of Candera. “This strategic partnership now takes our already extensive abilities in text integration to the next level. We’re looking forward to supporting our mutual, worldwide customers to be successful in their businesses by creating powerful HMI solutions together with MyScript’s handwriting recognition technology.”
