Renesas Electronics America has unleashed what it describes as a comprehensive, vehicle-level driving platform to expedite autonomous and automotive driving innovation. Together with Harbrick, NewFoundry, Arada Systems, eTrans and Cogent Embedded, Renesas developed a fleet of cars to operate as a modular and open laboratory for automotive customers. This strategy allows safe integrated solutions beyond silicon, while minimising design risk and speeding up time to market through pre-testing and integration, stated the company.

Renesas will expand, develop and offer novel vehicle-level platforms that can be used by algorithm experts, sensor makers, system integrators and other subject matter experts as a working sandbox in real-world environments where they can collaborate, validate, experiment and benchmarking innovative ideas. Renesas will expand the scope of these vehicles going forward to integrate cockpit, HMI, safety, security and powertrain platforms

R-Car W2R

A fleet of vehicles based on Renesas' Autonomous Driving Development Platform demonstrates the integration of such building blocks as sensor fusion, forward camera image recognition, 3D surround view and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication, all powered through Renesas solutions. Key to rapid software development in the fleet is Harbrick's PolySync, an autonomous driving development platform running on two Renesas R-Car H2 SoCs, enabling accelerated development of autonomous driving algorithms such as sensor fusion of the vehicle's 8 LIDAR, 5 radar, forward smart camera, V2X box and inertial measurement unit (IMU). Cogent Embedded's 3D surround view and forward camera lane detection running on an R-Car H2 bring modern computer vision to the fleet. Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communication featuring the Renesas R-Car W2R and R-Car E2 SoCs is integrated into the fleet of cars by eTrans Systems and Arada Systems, using two channels of 5.9GHz DSRC communication.
