Automotive

Brining innovation to your product engineering

The increasing availability of computational power at lower cost, an explosion of wireless communication, multiple connectivity options, and the availability of integrated intelligent sensors and actuators, are driving OEMs to devise out-of-the box strategies for delivering feature-packed vehicles that are no longer just ‘transportation agents’ at competitive prices.

Therefore, the key challenge before automotive manufacturers is to meet competitiveness in terms of performance, durability, safety and cost, while addressing issues such as:

  • Integration of multiple mechanical and electronic components
  • Combining entertainment, communication and navigation technologies
  • Coupling the world of electronics
  • Shrinking the lifetime of electronic products to around two years, to support the increasing lifespan of an automobile to around ten years.
  • Increasing electronics related defects in high-end vehicles
  • Meeting the increasingly tighter regulatory and safety norms

Inspired by the above trends, ERP Global’s Automotive practice offers Product & Engineering Solutions to cater to the growing needs of automotive OEMs and Tier1s to develop features, modules and the entire ECUs.

The ERP Global team has deep expertise in the automotive domain such as Powertrain, Body Electronics, Chassis, Safety, Infotainment and Telematics. Our experience includes projects involving development of BSP, device drivers, middleware and embedded control applications, system verification & validation, and systems engineering.

The automotive practice has experts in the area of model-based design, formal methods-based verification, ‘design for safety’ processes, automotive diagnostics, network protocol design & implementation of emerging standards. The team successfully leverages the company’s global delivery model blended with its deep domain knowledge, technical competency and mature processes to deliver end-to-end solutions and services across the Automotive value chain.
