HTML-supporting UI engine for deployment of
IoT on a wide range of devices.

Lightweight, open UI engine perfect for M2H devices.

Machine To Human (M2H) devices, which connect people and systems, are becoming more important with the advent of the IoT society. Using the lightweight paneE™ and its network functions as a UI engine enables devices to connect to networks through displays. This allows even memory-constrained devices, such as domestic appliances and household equipment, to be turned into added value IoT devices easily and economically.

4 Features

paneE is the only UI engine for embedded use, which allows the UI to be built using open HTML specifications.
Using web technologies to turn existing devices into IoT platforms provides a range of development and operational benefits.

01 Quick, Economic Development

Unlike conventional embedded product development, paneE uses HTML+CSS to build UIs, simplifying coding for both engineers and designers, reducing development time and costs.

02 Easy Cooperation with Various Web Services

paneE natively supports web technologies, making it easy to use Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript + XML). It connects seamlessly with various web services, enabling a unified UI look and feel.

03 Open Development Environment

The UI can be developed using highly versatile HTML authoring tools.
Development based on dedicated tools (which generally use C or C++ as the host language) drives up development costs and forces users to rely on vendors for tool updates. Using paneE, on the other hand, provides an environment that suits the development speeds of the IoT age.

04 Rich Expressive Capabilities in Limited Memory Environments

paneE works smoothly even in low memory (RAM: 2MB, ROM: 5.7MB), low-spec CPU (single core: 400MHz) environments. UIs are composed of HTML, making it possible to create content using JavaScript and jQuery-compatible zepto.js.

Use Cases

Domestic appliance touch panels

As domestic appliances grow more sophisticated, UI refinement is becoming essential. paneE can be used to easily develop touch panel UIs. Its communications functions enable remote control, and it can cooperate with web services to drive users to these services.

Enables remote operation of washing machines from out of the home, as well as leading users to purchasing sites for supplies such as detergent.

Industrial equipment display

paneE is optimal for use in industrial equipment displays, which are frequently changed.
With competitors’ UI engine products, most UI modifications for industrial equipment, such as FA equipment, and input devices, such as POS terminals and handy terminals, require additional program development and revision, even for minor UI changes.
In paneE, the engine and content are separate, eliminating the need for engineers to make minor UI changes.
