The Serious Human Interface™ Platform (SHIP)

The Serious Human Inteface Platform is a rapid GUI development and deployment system with five main ingredients:

The SHIPBridge Protocol

SHIPBridge is a powerful protocol enabling communications between a Serious Integrated Module (SIM) and an attached device, for example a Serious Communications Module (SCM) or an OEM’s embedded system. All SIMs running the Serious Human Interface™ Platform (SHIP) embedded runtime firmware, SHIPEngine, come SHIPBridge enabled.

SHIPBridge currently operates over any of the following physical interfaces:

  • USB
  • SPI
  • UART

SHIPBridge also provides numerous remote services from the attached device to the SIM, including:

  • Over-the-wire firmware and GUI updates
  • Bidirectional GUI data exchange
  • SIM control and status monitoring

The SHIPBridge Protocol Specification and example drivers are available under NDA from Serious.
