Industrial automation and real time systems

Embedded system design and development of software for industrial automation and real time systems in full compliance with the highest response time and reliability standards:

Organization of intermodular interaction
Minimization of system loading time
Exact synchronization of local network devices
Development and porting of inter-core interaction interfaces
Initial and background status monitoring of connected devices
Restoration of connected devices working capacity after crashes
Applications development for time synchronization systems based on the precise time signal (PPS) technology
System drivers development for specialized interfaces

Our portfolio includes software development projects for specialized industrial processor cards, SmartGrid systems, and various controllers, such as communication and panel controllers (HMI), industrial controllers (PLC), IEC 61850 controllers, etc. Also we developed test benches for functional firmware testing on the production site.

Our proven expertise

Navigation system for neurosurgeons
We developed a software and hardware system for accurate and safe operations on the brain and spine. The system shows the position of instruments in the patient's body in real time with an accuracy of one millimetre.
AI for STBs
In-video shopping AI for STBs
We helped the Oyper startup create an AI solution for scanning clothes and other items within video streams. Our team developed an app for Android and Java-based set-top boxes with Smart TV. The app finds links to online outlets so that users can buy clothes from their videos in a few clicks. We have also launched a mobile app for covering more video content on social networks.
Air quality
Air monitoring system
We designed a hardware and software system with measuring devices to collect and send the data to an IoT cloud server for analysis, alerting, and generation of the real-time air pollution map.
TV conferencing
Video conferencing for STB
We've integrated a feature for audio and video calls into Smart TV and set-top boxes, unique for digital TV operators. The new application for embedded platforms serves to meet different user categories' needs through an enhanced use scenario.
Railway unit
Railway navigation unit
The device to be installed in the train engineer’s cab; it receives the coordinates from the satellite navigation systems and transmits the geolocation data to the customer's server. For the device, we developed a Linux-based software platform including the graphical interface.
