The rapid development in ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance Systems) as well as autonomous driving vehicles and automated driving technologies is turning the world of dreams into reality. Renesas Electronics Corporation, a premium supplier of automotive semiconductor solutions, recently announced it latest R-Car V3H SoC (System-on-Chip) that is capable of delivering AI processing as well as high computer vision on industry’s best lower power levels, targeting front cameras in automotive that are to be mass produced. These are too be used in Level 3 and Level 4 (conditional and high automation respectively) autonomous vehicles. This new R-Car V3H SoC has been optimized to be used in stereo front cameras and attains five times better computer vision performance as compared to iits predecessor that were announced in April 2017. The R-Car V3H provides complete design flexibility for Tier 1s as well as OEMs to track down their own roads for all kind of automated vehicles ranging from assisted to completely automated ones.
As the vice president of Renesas Electronics Corporation, Jean-Francois Chouteau, adds that, “The R-Car V3H specification and design was done by cooperating closely with front camera market leaders to ensure we addressed the requirements of those leading innovations on autonomous driving systems. As the automotive semiconductor industry leader, Renesas is committed to providing open, innovative, and trusted solutions for assisted and automated driving. Besides featuring state-of-the-art computer vision performance at a very competitive system cost, what our customers like above all with R-Car-V3H is being able to keep the freedom to implement a front camera with their own differentiators and still benefit from scalable solutions between R-Car V3M and R-Car V3H.”
Its samples will be available in market since quarter four. Its mass production will begin from third quarter of 2019.
