Luxoft Acquires Symtavision, a Real Time Software Provider for Automotive Industry

Luxoft has announced that it has acquired Symtavision, a provider of automotive software tools and consulting services focused on scheduling analysis, architecture optimization, and timing verification.

These tools and services are for planning, optimizing, and verifying embedded, real-time systems within all modern automobiles.

Symtavision's tools, building on its proprietary intellectual property, focus on Under the Hood (UTH) technology around increasingly important software integration and timing analysis in the chassis, powertrain, body, and driver assistance domains as well as in-vehicle networking.

This acquisition fits perfectly into Luxoft's solution-based end-to-end offering strategy by expanding its embedded software expertise into a rapidly growing automotive segment.

Traditionally, Luxoft has focused on the cockpit engagements involving Human Machine Interface (HMI), infotainment, navigation, autonomous driving features and telematics.

As all of the cars' elements are moving rapidly from being hardware to software-defined, Luxoft envisions future demand to be connected with UTH-focused opportunities and solutions addressing various challenges related to under the hood and back-end (cloud) system design, development, management and maintenance.

As the automotive industry increasingly adopts and implements Advance Driver Assisted Systems (ADAS) and Driver Automation, the demand for tooling and expertise around real-time systems design and development creates a growing opportunity.

Automotive industry is shifting into the era of ADAS and autonomous driving with every component of the car playing crucial role in safety, security, driver experience and efficiency of the vehicles.

Luxoft sees numerous opportunities to create solutions for each of these segments.

The acquisition of Symtavision addresses a critical need to have UTH systems operating safely and securely in real-time, as well as to manage all under the hood operations by means of the software, which is increasingly moving into that part of the vehicle.

Luxoft Automotive managing director, Georg Doll said: "We would like to extend a warm welcome to the Symtavision team."

"We are excited about the areas of synergy between our two organizations. First, Symtavision's customer base and range of solutions are highly complementary to those of Luxoft.

"Their tools and services are deployed at select leading premium and volume car manufacturers and Tier-1 suppliers. It is also worth noting that a significant part of Symtavision's revenue is derived from licenses, which is in line with Luxoft's strategy."

Symtavision CEO, Marek Jersak said: "We are excited about the tremendous potential Luxoft offers for growing Symtavision solutions for the benefit of our existing and future customers."

"The increased software dependency in vehicles will require additional levels of computing performance and network communications far exceeding those of established vehicle systems.

"These systems need to execute a tremendous amount of functions in real-time, reliably and under stringent cost constraints. ADAS, for instance, is a disruptive technology that is fundamentally challenging the way automotive electrical engineering and software systems have been built and integrated in the past."
