Automotive Software Development
Since 2004, we have been engineering custom automotive electronics and software: embedded systems for commercial trucks, buses, passenger cars, two-wheelers, construction equipment, off-highway vehicles, and even sea and river vessels.
Our portfolio includes successful projects for American and European automotive concerns: electronic control units for electric and fuel vehicles, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), video solutions for cars, hardware and software for connectivity.
Devices and embedded systems
We help our customers create products for local and global markets: control units, integrated solutions and solutions for "connected" cars, video and ICE systems (in-car entertainment), as well as solutions for specialized vehicles for construction, agriculture, mining, etc.
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 (up to ASLC according to ISO 26262).
Besides, we are now focused on providing emerging solutions to our clients and developing custom video solutions, connectivity, telematics, and e-mobility.
Automotive software development
We develop software in compliance with the strict requirements for safety-critical devices, AUTOSAR, MISRA and other industry standards. With ASPICE processes and special software testing methodologies, we create extremely reliable systems. Here are some examples of the projects completed for our clients:
Electronic control units (BCU, TCU, HVAC, etc.) to control actuators, valves, motors
Hardware and software for clusters, dashboards, telematic systems, connectivity systems
Interfaces based on Embedded Linux, QT
Infotainment systems on Linux and Android
Development of diagnostic and test tools
Software compatible with AUTOSAR, MISRA, and ASPICE
AUTOSAR, Automotive Open System Architecture
AUTOSAR is an international partnership in the development of an open and standardized software architecture for automotive electronic control units (ECUs). The goal of this partnership is to ensure the availability, security, scalability, and portability of software platforms for vehicles; guarantee maintainability throughout the life cycle of the product.
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 automotive 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, Automotive Software Process Improvement and Capability dEtermination
ASPICE is a domain-specific quality model under ISO/IEC 15504. ASPICE serves for software engineers to define, implement, and evaluate the automotive industry product development process. We bring value to our clients by evolving demands satisfaction, risk reduction, and quality assurance. We've are planning to complete ACPICE L2 capability level.

Automotive devices and software on edge
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.
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.
High quality of service; increased speed of project implementation; assistance in the implementation into the final solution.
Time and money savings in turnkey projects; QA at all stages and quick bug fixing; project management.
Flexible cooperation models; growth mutually with the client; quick resolution of the client's sudden tasks; integration of ready-made solutions.
"Promwad has strong capabilities to deliver project assets against agreed Milestones in time and especially for projects where shipment date cannot be changed. Their technical competence in Android AOSP was impressive.
Promwad Technical Manager / PM provided overall project status and deliverable in time via Scrum process set up."
