Powertrain – Engine systems


Powertrain – Engine systems – the essence of a vehicle.

The automotive industry started with a powertain. It is the muscular system of a vehicle. Thus, it incorporates all components that transform the power of the engine into movement. It is still an essential component in software engineering services.

Powertrain market

There is a constant need for better engines that are not only more efficient in performance but also environmentally. Thus, the powertrain market is estimated to grow to over 600 billion by 2023.

A very important sub-sector of this is powertrains for electric vehicles. There is an incredible demand for these types of engine systems. 

The main components that are responsible for generating power need software development as well. Our expertise incorporates application for both ICEs (Internal Combustion Engine) and PHEVs (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle.)

Our engine systems expertise covers:

  • basic software (basic layer)
  • drivers for peripherals and microcontroller software for engine control
  • generic software
  • drivers of pulse generation and measurement
  • communication drivers (FlexRay) and application modules (auto-coding with MatLab)
  • fully AUTOSAR compliant projects
  • application software
  • Inter system communication
  • Universal Diagnostic System (UDS)
  • CAN, LIN, FlexRay interfaces configuration
  • functionality of ECU hardware components test
  • ECU test software development


Powertrain applications:

Engine systems (Internal Combustion Engine):

Engine control, 14V Network Management, Failure Manager

PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle):

High Voltage Network,  Manage High Voltage Battery, Manage Cooling, Failure Manager, Invertor Motor Control, Charge Management 

We provide customized software, hardware, mechanical design solutions and system testing for the most diverse vehicle architectures and OEM strategies.
