Automotive Engineering Services

Our automotive engineering services leverage 20 years of cross-industry expertise. We build embedded systems for commercial trucks, buses, passenger cars, two-wheelers, construction vehicles and equipment, off-highway vehicles, and sea/river vessels.

We've successfully executed custom automotive electronics and software projects for American and European automotive concerns: ECUs for electric and fuel-powered vehicles, IVI systems, and video equipment integration and connectivity solutions.

Devices and Embedded Systems

We help our customers create devices and software for the automotive industry, targeting local and global markets. Our team works on EV charging solutions, including standard chargers and wireless charging software, control units, integrated solutions for connected cars, video and ICE (in-car entertainment) systems. Additionally, we enhance specialised vehicles in various fields, including construction, agriculture, and mining. 

Our embedded automotive solutions meet the industry's stringent requirements. We design hardware platforms for uninterrupted operation even under harsh conditions and build fault-tolerant embedded systems (up to ASIL C as per ISO 26262).

Moreover, our automotive software engineering services encompass creating custom video, telematics, and e-mobility applications.

Our Software Expertise in Automotive Electronics Design

Automotive electronic design at Promwad includes developing software that meets the strict requirements for safety-critical devices, such as AUTOSAR, MISRA, ISO 26262, ISO 25119, and other industry standards. Our team creates extremely reliable systems using ASPICE processes and special software testing methodologies.


What we do for our clients:

Interfaces based on Embedded Linux, Qt

Development of diagnostic and testing tools

Electronic control units (e.g., BCU, TCU) to control actuators, valves, and motors

Hardware and software for clusters, dashboards, telematic systems, connectivity systems

Image and video processing:
dash cams, AI vision modules, driver monitoring systems, passive safety systems, and prediction analytics

Qt-Powered Development for Automotive

As an official tech partner of the Qt Group, we design UX and applications for the following systems:

Software Compatible with AUTOSAR, MISRA, and ASPICE

autosar

AUTOSAR, Automotive Open System Architecture

AUTOSAR is an international partnership that focuses on developing an open and standardized software architecture for the ECUs. The goal of this partnership is to ensure the availability, security, scalability, and portability of vehicle software platforms, thus guaranteeing maintainability throughout the product's life cycle.

misra

MISRA, Motor Industry Software Reliability Association

MISRA is an association of vehicle manufacturers, component suppliers, and engineering companies established to provide software reliability in the industry. One of the standards – MISRA C – was designed to promote the security, portability, and reliability of programs for embedded systems in the C language.

ASPICE

ASPICE, Automotive Software Process Improvement and Capability dEtermination

ASPICE is a domain-specific quality model under ISO/IEC 15504. It helps software engineers define, implement, and evaluate the product development process. We bring value to our clients by evolving demand satisfaction, reducing risks, and providing quality assurance. Our team is currently in the process of attaining the ASPICE L2 capability level.

Edge Computing for Automotive Devices and Software

Market problem

Designing and bringing innovative automotive software design solutions to market are always associated with high risks. Customers often need more expertise, which can only be gained by successfully realising similar projects.

Benefits

As an electronic design company, we've participated in many innovative projects with bleeding-edge and time-tested technologies, which helped us devise an effective risk management policy. The average volume of such projects is around $300,000 - 400,000. Cooperating with us, a client can save an average of $100,000 in such cases and then use the savings to form the component base and the testing equipment.

Our solution

 Quality

High quality of automotive software development services, increased project implementation speed, and assistance in launching the final product.

 Turnkey

Time and money savings in turnkey projects, QA at every stage, quick bug fixing, and project management.

 Support

Flexible cooperation models, mutual growth with a client, quick resolution of unplanned tasks, and integration of ready-made systems.

Sergey Priporov

"Promwad has strong capabilities to deliver project assets according to agreed-upon milestones, especially for projects where the shipment date cannot be changed. Their technical competence in Android AOSP was impressive.

Promwad's technical manager/PM provided overall project status and deliverables in time via Scrum process setup."
