Embedded GUI Controller for HMI Applications: ArtistaGUI

The ArtistaGUI is an embedded Human Machine Interface (HMI) Controller for upgrading simple controlling systems with a TFT Display. The result is an intelligent TFT module, which can be addressed via micro controller. The GUI (Graphical User Interface) is programmed with a WYSIWYG Interface-Designer and the scripting language QT-Quick 1.1 (2.4. in preparation). For the communication protocol the robust and approved Modbus-RTU is employed.
