Renesas Electronics Corporation today announced that it has won the Tech.AD Special Jury Award 2018 with its R-Car V3M-based front camera solution for advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD). The solution, based on Renesas hardware and HELLA Aglaia software, is part of Renesas’ open, innovative and trusted Renesas autonomy™ Platform delivering end-to-end automotive solutions from secure cloud connectivity and sensing to vehicle control.
The award ceremony was held during Automotive Tech.AD Berlin on March 5 at TITANIC Chaussee in Berlin, Germany. Presented by we.CONECT, the prestigious Tech.AD Award exclusively recognises, celebrates, and honours exceptional projects for automotive safety, ADAS and AD. The jury consisted of Dr. Brendan Chan from Navistar, Dr. Florian Baumgärtner from Daimler and David Sanchez from Jaguar Land Rover.
The front camera solutions from the Renesas autonomy Platform ensure scalability from NCAP systems using R-Car V3M, to level 3 and level 4 (SAE levels of automation, front camera systems based on the recently announced R-Car V3H. The open solutions unlock the front camera market by giving system manufacturers the choice to implement their own differentiators or work with Renesas’ global leading partners, such as HELLA Aglaia.
“The R-Car V3M based front camera solution enables product differentiation and faster time-to-market for applications targeting the rapidly-growing front camera market, which is expected to exceed 200 million units over the next five years,” said Jean-Francois Chouteau, Vice President of ADAS Solution Business Division at Renesas Electronics Corporation. “As the automotive semiconductor industry leader, Renesas is committed to providing open, innovative, and trusted solutions for assisted and automated driving. We are honored that our R-Car V3M-based front camera solution and the open business model has received the Tech.AD Special Jury Award 2018.”
