Software is a key differentiator in the automotive space and cars have capabilities that were once unimaginable.
Our diverse background in mobile app development, connectivity, embedded and automotive have provided us with the advantage of having the flexible and multi-dimensional skills needed to create engaging experiences for both head unit and rear-seat applications.
Additionally, our previous partnerships with some of the leading automakers, Tier 1s, and mobile networks worldwide have given us unique insight into the challenges of integrating software solutions into automotive vehicles, such as cross-vendor dependencies, driver distraction, consumer expectations.
Our expert teams can provide support throughout the critical stages of the product development life cycle to determine a winning strategy for the planning, design and development of the solutions.
We have the resources and skills to collaborate with our clients on all stages of the software development lifecycle. These stages include Product Management, Project Management, HMI and UI/UX, Software Architecture and Development, Quality Assurance, Maintenance and Support.
Successful development requires an understanding of what, who, why and how. At the initial stages of the project our senior-level experts work closely with our clients on requirements and specifications analysis. Our deep understanding of industry standards and limitations enable us to help our clients define the product, identify the needs and choose the best strategy and solution for their business.
Our product management teams expertise spans:
This allows our product managers to both generate cutting-edge product and platform ideas and deliver them to market within accelerated time-frames.
The TekWissen design team is always up-to-date with current and upcoming trends in automotive HMI and usability in infotainment. We develop highly interactive, user-friendly and smart HMI solutions that help our clients succeed in a competitive world. Our UI strategy is focused on providing positive experiences that comply with driver distraction guidelines, security policies and the automakers brand and style.
Our experienced specialists ensure that they make the best design choices, both from a technical and usability standpoint, to create a consistent visual and behavioral experience for your product.
Our design process includes:
Here at TekWissen we have the experience and expertise to develop User Interface applications for a variety of Head Unit platforms, tethered and embedded solutions, and to architect complex and reliability-driven cloud services. We are familiar with the specific product development challenges that arise in the automotive industry, such as software/hardware integrations and the criticality of firmware choices.
Our engineers use a variety of the leading industry tools, in-vehicle APIs and CAN bus simulator platforms to deliver reliable and scalable frameworks and high-performance embedded systems for the automotive market.
We provide Quality Assurance (QA) and testing services across all major hardware and software platforms using our QA processes: Requirements analysis, test planning, test execution, defect management and reporting using a variety of Test Frameworks and issue-tracking tools. Each project is assigned a dedicated QA team that monitors its activities and results at each development phase to ensure that the highest standards are met in terms of product quality, reliability, durability and safety.
Automation testing is included in this process to improve product reliability, save time and money spent on testing activities, shorten the release cycle and ensure that there is no human-error in the verification process of system-critical points. Our QA teams have the required experience modeling in simulated environments to provide advanced and early test results without having to re-iterate the entire flow through complex integrated hardware systems.
We realize that environments consistently evolve and change over time. Our core product engineers re-engineer, troubleshoot and manage the source code integration of fixes with different releases in order to keep the product up-to-date with the customers environment. We provide timely recommendations on keeping your solutions in-line with changing business requirements and technology updates in the automotive industry to ensure that your software is always stable and reliable in this rapidly evolving environment.
Our project management team consists of industry experts who have deep technical experience in driving large, complex development efforts in the automotive space. They help facilitate and manage optimum communication between the client and our team in order to build a strong and lasting business relationship.
We provide software solutions for the following major components of in-vehicle systems:
Modern infotainment head units and rear-seat entertainment solutions rely on different technologies across different OEMs and car models. At TekWissen we embrace a broad spectrum of automotive technology stacks, including:
The connected car experience is a burgeoning domain in the automotive industry. Connected vehicle infotainment, cloud-enabled navigation devices, in-car wireless networking, fleet management and remote monitoring applications these all require a solid foundation for connectivity. With the operators' networks on one side (3G, 4G, WLAN) and the local in-car interfaces/networks on the other (OBDII, CAN, LIN), connected automotive applications need a gateway device to bridge these networks in a smart way.
As part of a Connected Runtime Framework project, TekWissen has developed OBDII Automotive Gateway a low cost, tiny footprint software stack that runs originally on a STM32 MCU hardware platform and enables advanced device-to-cloud applications.
