Automotive Software Solutions for Software-Defined Vehicles

We are experts in providing automotive software solutions including AUTOSAR, HMI, Telematics, Body Control Module, Bootloader Development and Porting, MCAL Development and Validation, and System Level Test (SLT).


A widely recognized automotive standard that enables open system architectures for intelligent mobility. It focuses on ensuring dependability, safety, and security in automotive software.

Functional Safety

Defined by ISO 26262, aims to identify malfunctions in electric and electronic systems in automobiles. It provides guidelines for mitigating risks and damages during software or hardware failures.

Human-Machine Interface (HMI)

Refers to the interaction between humans and machines in the automotive environment. Examples include Heads-Up Displays, Rear Seat Entertainment Systems, and voice recognition. HMIs assist drivers and passengers in controlling infotainment, connectivity solutions, and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).


It combines telecommunications and informatics to enable communication between vehicles and other devices via the internet. Embedded telematics in cars allow connectivity with the cellular network, facilitating the exchange of vehicle telemetry, such as location, fuel level, and tire pressure.

Body Control Module (BCM)

A vital component in modern vehicles that facilitates communication and integration among electronic modules. It controls load drivers and coordinates the activation of auto electronics units, receiving input from sensors and vehicle indicators.

System Level Test (SLT)

Involves testing an application or device, such as a CPU or microcontroller, along with supporting integrated circuits (ICs) like power management ICs, memory, and display. SLT is crucial for achieving customer-specific use cases and high-quality standards in mission-critical applications like automotive.

Bootloader Development and Porting

Refers to the development of the start-up code for Electronic Control Units (ECUs). It ensures the health of the CPU and peripherals and facilitates flashing of developed firmware.

Micro Controller Abstraction Layer (MCAL)

A layer within AUTOSAR that includes low-level drivers for communication, I/O, and memory. MCAL development involves creating these drivers in compliance with AUTOSAR standards.

MCAL Validation

Involves validating MCAL drivers to ensure they meet system-level requirements and functional safety standards.

OS Porting and Integration

Involves migrating modules to different or updated operating systems (OS). It is essential to integrate modules developed by various parties to ensure their proper functioning within a release’s functionality.
