Automotive Engineering Services
Since 2004, we have been engineering custom automotive electronics and software: embedded systems for commercial trucks, buses, passenger cars, two-wheelers, construction vehicles and 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 fueled vehicles, in-vehicle infotainment, video equipment integration for cars, and hardware and software connectivity solutions.
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 (in-car entertainment) systems, as well as solutions for specialized vehicles in the fields of construction, agriculture, mining, etc.
Our embedded automotive solutions meet the stringent requirements of the industry. We design hardware platforms for uninterrupted operation even under harsh conditions and write program code for fault-tolerant embedded systems (up to ASLC as per ISO 26262).
Aside from this, we are currently focused on providing emerging solutions to our clients through the development of custom video solutions, connectivity, telematics, and e-mobility systems.
Automotive software development
We develop software in compliance with the strict requirements for safety-critical devices, such as AUTOSAR, MISRA, and other industry standards. With the help of ASPICE processes and special software testing methodologies, we create extremely reliable systems. Here are some examples of the projects that we have completed for our clients:
Electronic control units (BCU, TCU, HVAC, etc.) to control actuators, valves, and 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 testing tools
Software compatible with AUTOSAR, MISRA, and ASPICE
AUTOSAR, Automotive Open System Architecture
AUTOSAR is an international partnership that focuses on 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, thus guaranteeing 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 that was established with the goal of providing 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 are currently in the process of attaining the ASPICE L2 capability level.

Automotive devices and software on edge
Designing and bringing innovative automotive products or software solutions to market are always associated with high risks. Customers often don't have the necessary expertise, as it can only be gained by successfully realizing similar projects.
We participate in many innovative projects with both bleeding-edge and time-tested technologies. 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 an average of $100,000 in such cases. The client can use those savings to form the component base and the testing equipment.
High quality of service; increased project implementation speed; assistance in the implementation of the final solution.
Time and money savings in turnkey projects; QA at all stages and quick bug fixing; project management.
Flexible cooperation models; mutual growth 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."
