FLYER Innovates a New Technology

In 2015, FLYER began developing their revolutionizing technology “FLYER Intelligent Technology“, also referred to as FIT.

With this technology, the company wanted to provide their customers with precise communication to ensure max performance at all times.

A User-Friendly GUI Display

As a part of FIT, FLYER wanted a user-friendly embedded GUI display.

While instant response time was crucial, graphic quality and design was equally important, as they wanted a display that reflected FLYER’s own core value of never compromising its quality standards.

The framework also needed to integrate effortlessly with their existing IDE, ST work bench.

With these requirements specified, the development team started searching for software frameworks that would enable just that on their FLYER display D1.

In their search, they fell across TouchGFX and started to evaluate our framework while benchmarking it against others.

We tested TouchGFX by creating a proof of concept. The framework convinced us more and more the further we went. We were especially impressed by it’s great functionality, such as sliding, transitions, and instant response. We found its UI performance to be outstanding.

A Fast Start with Free Resources

During evaluation and development FLYER’s development team visited our Help Center. The free articles and tutorials supported the team throughout their development.

The TouchGFX Help Center was a tremendous help for us in our prototype and final productions. The free resources was really all we needed to get going with TouchGFX. While other frameworks demanded more know-how, TouchGFX allowed us to succeed with creating our innovative display solution, fast and easy.

More to Come…

The D1 is part of the 2017 bike selection.

It has received a lot of positive reviews. Due to its succes, the company has upgraded its TouchGFX license to a company license to be able to continue developing innovative solutions with TouchGFX.

We wish FLYER the best of luck and are happy to continue our succesful collaboration.
