Qt Android Automotive Vehicle Module

This module contains classes and templates to access vehicle-specific functionality. The essence of this module is not only to give access to vehicle functions covered by Android Automotive OS but also to help you in creating integration to your own custom vehicle functionality. All this is done by using templates and automated code generation besides conventional code to keep the cost of adding new features and maintenance down.

Module Parts

The following libraries are in this module:

Using the Module

Using a Qt library requires linking against the module library, either directly or through other dependencies. CMake and qmake build tools are supported.

To include the non-generated definitions of the Vehicle library's classes, use the following directive for C++:

#include <QtAndroidAutomotiveVehicle>

To use the non-generated QML types from this library, add the following import statement to your .qml file:

import QtAndroidAutomotive.Vehicle

Building with CMake

Use the find_package() and target_link_libraries() commands to locate and link the needed module component from the Qt6 package:

find_package(Qt6 REQUIRED COMPONENTS AndroidAutomotiveVehicle)
target_link_libraries(mytarget PRIVATE Qt::AndroidAutomotiveVehicle)

Building with qmake

Add androidautomotivevehicle to the QT variable:

QT += androidautomotivevehicle

Also look at Qt IF Android Vehicle Properties to see the use of the supplied generated code.


Some of the APIs in the module need Android permissions to function properly. For more details, see Permissions in Qt Android Automotive Vehicle Module.
