Getting Started with Qt Safe Renderer Target Devices

In Qt Online installer and Qt Maintenance Tool, you can install the Qt Safe Renderer 2.1.0 RC 1 system image, toolchain, and system root for the following target devices:

The following topics guide how you can install the related components on your host, flash the target device, and launch the Qt Safe Renderer demo on the device:

  1. Installing on Host
  2. Flashing into Target Device
  3. Starting Qt Safe Renderer Demo in Target Device

Installing on Host

You can install the Qt Safe Renderer 2.1.0 RC 1 system images, toolcain, and system root via Qt Online Installer (new installation) or update your existing installation with Qt Maintenance Tool.

On Qt Online Installer and Qt Maintenance Tool, the available target hardware components are listed under Qt Safe Renderer 2.1.0 RC 1 in the Select Components page:

Select the components and follow the instructions of the wizard.

Flashing into Target Device

You can flash the system image to an SD card with Qt Creator's Flashing Wizard. In Qt Creator, select Tools > Flash Boot to Qt Device. Follow the instructions of the wizard.

Starting Qt Safe Renderer Demo in Target Device

After you have flashed the system image into your target device, start the Qt Safe Renderer demo as follows:

  1. In Qt Creator, select Edit > Preferences > Devices > Open Remote Shell (1).

  2. In the remote shell, type systemctl start qsrdemo.target.
  3. The Qt Safe Renderer demo is launched on your target device.

The demo launches the following Qt Safe Renderer examples on the device: Qt Cluster, Telltales, and Message Proxy. You can control them via the Event Sender example. For example, you can change the status of telltales, layout in Qt Cluster, and demonstrate a failure in the main application UI. For more information, see Testing Safety-Critical Rendering and Events.

In Event Sender, you must set the IP and port for Qt Cluster and Telltales. See Setting IP and Port for more information. You can see the IP and port information on the startup screen of your device when you start it with the flashed memeory card.
