Renesas Electronics Corporation and HELLA Aglaia have announced their open and scalable front camera solution for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving. It is known that Renesas is a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, and HELLA Aglaia is one of the leading global developers of intelligent visual sensor systems.
The new front camera solution combines the R-Car V3M, Renesas’ high-performance, low-power image recognition system-on-chip (SoC) for New Car Assessment Program (NCAP, Note 1), and HELLA Aglaia´s field-proven camera software designed to meet level 2 and level 3 automation. Designed for scalability, the solution enables system designers to build a wide range of front cameras from cameras supporting NCAP to cameras supporting requirements for up to level 3 applications.
This collaboration opens up the market for front cameras as sensor vision is projected to become a major requirement for NCAP over the next several years.safety features such as automated emergency braking, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition. OEMs & Tier 1s are seeking open-but-proven solutions with the right performance and cost efficiency balance to provide them the freedom to implement a front camera with their own differentiators.
