ICS Webinars

Consumers not only expect an intuitive and beautiful device with unparalleled performance, they also expect a responsive touch with seamless transitioning between screens for a positive customer experience. Product companies must be able to adapt quickly to market requirements to maintain a competitive advantage. 

Qt, the leading independent technology for cross-platform development, is the leading choice for software developers with touchscreen user interface needs. These complimentary ICS Webinars are dedicated to providing you with educational content that will enhance your Qt programming, helping you to future proof your products and applications and connect to what is to come!

UPCOMING WEBINARS

Leveraging Open Standards to Build Highly Extensible Autonomous Systems

This webinar is for software developers and product leaders interested in using open standards to build extensible autonomous or robotic systems.    

ON-DEMAND WEBINARS

Creating Advanced GUIs for Low-power MCUs with Qt

Microcontrollers, often referred to as MCUs, are used in a growing array of systems and devices, including vehicles, robots, medical devices, industrial automation and home appliances. MCU hardware is introducing touchscreens to more devices with great low-cost electronics. But building rich graphical user interfaces on MCUs can be challenging, especially when given limited development time and resources. This webinar is for software teams considering to develop and design UIs for MCUs.

Safeguard your Medical Devices from Cyber Threats

Manufacturers and developers of modern medical devices have to deal with hugely expanded threats. In this webinar with Q1 Productions, we'll share our experience with creating medical device software and its complexity. We’ll go through common areas of vulnerability for medical devices and talk about how to address these vulnerabilities in an efficient way.

Improving User Experience with Ubiquitous QuickBoot

In this webinar, we will introduce QuickBoot and show how it can solve slow cold boot times. You will: • Learn the difference from other fast boot techniques on Linux or Android devices. • Get technical details of QuickBoot. • See a demonstration of a real-world embedded application illustrating the boot time performance.

Qt 6 Chat: Are You Ready?

We’re sure you’ve heard by now about the release of Qt 6.0 — but are you ready? Join the conversation with our Qt Engineers to discuss the present and future of Qt 6. Ranging from API updates to porting tips, we’ll save you valuable time by giving a shortcut overview of changes that have made it into this first version.

An Introduction to FreeRTOS

Low-cost microcontrollers are being used more and more often in embedded applications that previously may have used a microprocessor. Microcontrollers often run a real-time operating system (RTOS) rather than a full operating system like Linux. In this webinar we introduce FreeRTOS, a popular RTOS for microcontrollers that has been ported to 35 microcontroller platforms.

Usability Challenges in Cutting-edge Medical Devices and Exoskeleton Robotics

As medical device and robotics technology mature and grow more capable they also become more complex, requiring focus on usability aspects from both a user experience (UX) design and regulatory perspective. These new applications, such as exoskeletons, demand a seamless interaction between the device and the user. That means designers and developers must improve utility while mitigating inherent risks.

Speed and Agility of Innovation with Docker and Kubernetes

Docker and Kubernetes pave the way for running federated, scalable and redundant systems on the Cloud and on the Edge with the same technology. In this introductory webinar we will go over the history, fundamentals and usage of Docker and Kubernetes and present key takeaways for CTOs and developers. We'll also cover the key benefits of using this technology in both the development and deployment of Qt applications. 

We'll discuss:

Creating Touchless HMIs Using Computer Vision for Gesture Interaction

Touchscreens are everywhere in public spaces, from grocery store express checkouts to airline check-in counters. As COVID-19 has made people hesitant to touch public surfaces, which can act as vectors for the virus, you may wish to embrace contactless user interfaces for your customer-facing products. In this engineering-focused webinar, we’ll offer technical insight on how to emulate the touch experience via computer vision and gesture technology, and explain best practices to incorporate AirTouch into multimodal interfaces.

Optimizing Usability and Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) in Medical Robotics

From elder companionship and assistance to exoskeleton rehabilitation to autonomous surgery, robotics is playing a key role in emerging healthcare technology. These new applications demand a seamless interaction between the robot and the user, requiring new models that both improve the utility and mitigate the inherent risks. This webinar will discuss the state of the art relative to UX/UI where a human is supervising a cobotic cell or platoon of multi-functional robots perform a variety of tasks, streaming data back to the supervisor, prioritizing process steps, assisting in decision making etc. 

Don’t Touch! Touchless Interactions in the Post-COVID World

Less than nine months ago, the deployment of touchscreens was accelerating. Everywhere you visited or shopped, there were new self-service touchscreen devices to help you find directions or product information, order services, or dispense food and drink. However, one of the fallouts of the COVID-19 pandemic is that consumers are now resistant to touch these public devices. In this webinar we’ll discuss use cases as well as strengths and weaknesses for alternative measures.
