Design and manufacturing of automotive electronics

 

Since 2004, we have been designing and manufacturing custom automotive electronics: embedded systems for cars and trucks, sea and river vessels.

Our portfolio includes successful projects for American and European automotive concerns: in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), OBD trackers, engine control units, navigation systems and other electronics.

Devices and embedded systems

We help our customers create products for local and global markets: "connected" cars, ICE systems (In-Car Entertainment), integrated solutions for specialized vehicles based on the IoT technologies (Internet of Things).

Our embedded automotive solutions meet the stringent requirements of the industry. We design hardware platforms for uninterrupted operation under harsh conditions and write program code for fault-tolerant embedded systems.

Besides, we are now focused on providing to our clients emerging solutions in telematics & GPS tracking, and custom dash cam development.

Why Promwad

Expertise

Expertise

Close partnership with vendors, access to the best SDKs, extensive automotive portfolio, and deep expertise gives us a strong competitive advantage on the market

Flexibility

Flexibility

Our experience allows us to enroll in any kind of automotive projects as fast as possible. At the same time, we are ready to provide flexible cooperation models

Experience

Experience

We can act as a guide for vendors' SDKs in local markets. We provide support to the vendors' clients, leave feedback after working with products, and popularize them in target groups

Automotive devices and software on edge

Problem

Designing and bringing an innovative automotive product or software solutions to the market is always associated with high risks. Customers don't have the necessary expertise, as it can only be worked out in similar projects.

Benefits

We participate in many innovative projects with technologies on edge. That helped us work out an effective risk management policy. Projects connected with innovations always bring along high risks. The average volume of such projects is around $300,000 - 400,000. Cooperation with us allows the client to save above $100,000. The client can use those savings to form the component base and the testing equipment.
