Japanese automotive electronics solution provider and semiconductor giant Renesas Electronics Corporation has launched a new all-in-one Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) view solution kit for autonomous driving.
Renesas has launched this second generation ADAS view solution kit after a year of successful introduction of the first-generation ADAS surround view kit
The second-generation ADAS view solution kit with up to eight cameras realizes next-generation electronic mirrors, driver monitoring and surround view systems all at the same time.
Viewing applications including 360 degree surround view are projected as one of the next comfort and safety features in the autonomous driving concept.
It has also become a standard in autonomous driving and ADAS applications to enable sensor fusion that combines and processes the collected information from automotive cameras and radars for vehicles to recognize their surroundings.
Camera-based electronic mirrors will allow object detection, the modification of viewing angles and zooming. Driver monitoring will help to build safe, autonomous driving level 3-and-beyond vehicles that still demand intervention by the driver in some situations, and will be able to monitor driver attention in conventional cars.
To address these changes, Renesas launched the all-in-one ADAS view solution kit that includes the recently-announced “R-Car Starter Kit Premier” automotive software development environment, basing on the R-Car H3 system-on-chip (SoC), as well as the required sample application software for ADAS application software development and calibration software to correct distortion of the images for surround view.
The latest ADAS view solution kit will be displayed at hall A6, stand 342, electronica 2016, to be held in Munich, Germany, from November 8 to November 11.
The ADAS view solution kit is scheduled to be available from January 2017 and will include the ADAS Starter Kit Premier as well as four cameras.
