Renesas Electronics’ R-Car SOC for car infotainment and advanced driving assistant systems (ADAS) along with the RH850 automotive control microcontroller (MCU) have been adopted by Nissan. These chips will be utilized for the latter’s ProPILOT Park- a full-fledged automated-parking system of Nissan LEAF.
The R-Car SoC plays an eminent role in the ProPILOT Park of Nissan LEAF. It identifies adequate parking spaces, ensures there are no obstacles, and issues control commands for acceleration, braking, steering, and shifting.
The chip includes Renesas’ exclusive parallel image processor that takes high-resolution images from the latest automotive CMOS digital cameras. It is capable of performing high-speed, low-power signal processing.

Besides, the RH850 MCU accepts the chassis control commands from the R-Car SOC, whereby these commands are transmitted to the various electronic control units (ECUs) used. This, in turn, allows Nissan LEAF ProPILOT Park to achieve safe and reliable parking operation.
Through its new advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving platform, Renesas aims to render a safe, secure, and convenient driving experience by offering innovative solutions for next-gen cars.
