Renesas Automotive @ CES 2018 Highlights

Renesas Automotive @ CES 2018 Highlights


My name’s John Buszek. I manage the Autonomous Driving Systems team at Renesas and
this is a vehicle we put together so you
can better understand autonomous driving…
to help us make the best autonomous
driving processors, for our customers.
This vehicle has nine cameras – all are being processed by Renesas processors
also we have a scanning Lidar and high-definition map,
also a differential GPS system.
Cadillacs are really our ADAS specific
development vehicles. These vehicles are
equipped with many different sensors,
so these vehicles are actually equipped
with ten different cameras: there’s three
roof-mounted cameras, two forward-facing
cameras, a driver monitor camera and
then four surround-view cameras, as well.
Important thing to think about is – this
surround-view application is being run
entirely off our Renesas R-Car V3M, so
all of this is actually done without the
use of a GPU. It’s all done on hardware
acceleration on our own peripherals.
We can actually claim and say with
confidence that this is the lowest cost
lowest power 4-camera surround-view
system on the market today!
The Renesas Connected Cockpit vehicle
showcases the power of the Renesas R-Car H3 SoC
as well as the development capabilities of the Automotive Systems team within Renesas.
Creation of the Renesas Connected Cockpit vehicle allows us to
better support our customers
and further solidify our stance
as THE automotive SoC partner.
