Renesas Electronics has announced the next generation of its advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), automated driving, and connected cockpit demonstration vehicles. From sensor fusion to ADAS to connected cockpits, the three Renesas vehicles demonstrate fully integrated systems based on advanced, production-ready technologies that enable OEMs and Tier 1s to solve the complex challenges of autonomous vehicle design as the industry shifts from test and simulation to product development.
Renesas has added evolutionary upgrades in embedded vision, lidar, GPS, and security to its current autonomous Lincoln MKZ and ADAS Cadillac vehicles. The company is also introducing the new Renesas Connected Cockpit Vehicle, developed on a Dodge Ram 1500 truck, showcasing the convergence of embedded- and cloud-based technologies to provide a more integrated and personalized in-car experience.
Conceived as development platforms for automotive system manufacturers, the Renesas vehicles enable the creation of safe, integrated solutions that extend beyond silicon, based on powerful, high-reliability automotive-grade Renesas solutions, including:
- Third-generation R-Car system-on-chip (SoC), including the R-Car H3 (Connected Cockpit, Lincoln, and Cadillac vehicles) and the R-Car V3M (Lincoln and Cadillac vehicles)
- Popular RH850 Family of microcontrollers (MCUs) for vehicle control
- Renesas IMP-X5 computer vision processing architecture
Renesas will demonstrate the vehicles at CES 2018 in the Renesas Advanced and Autonomous Test Track and Future Ready Solutions Showcase, January 9-12, 2018, in Las Vegas.
