Renesas and Cogent combine on parking-assist board

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-09-15
Renesas and Cogent have developed a 3D surround view board product to assist drivers during parking or low speed maneuvers.

Designed for parking assist systems in entry- and mid-level cars, the implementation combines the Renesas R-Car V3M system-on-chip (SoC), which incorporates a dedicated image rendering unit (IMR) that delivers realistic 360-degree surround view, with Cogent’s customisable software on a reference board.

The solution eliminates the need to use a GPU, thereby enabling system developers to create power-efficient 3D surround view parking assist systems at low cost. On-demand customization services can also be provided by Cogentto enable system developers to concentrate on developing application software to differentiate their systems.

“As in-vehicle infotainment and ADAS systems converge, automotive system designers require technologies that deliver predictable performance for safety while securing the flexibility to customize,” says Renesas’ Shinichi Yoshioka, “Renesas is expanding its relationship with software expert Cogent Embedded to deliver new solutions that address both of these growing markets with our R-Car V3M SoC that delivers 3D function and performance comparable to other surround view SoCs, at lower power and cost levels.”

Next generation 3D surround view systems must achieve not only display functionality but also object recognition. Surround view is a vehicle camera system that provides an all-round panorama view and assists the driver when parking.

A control display on the vehicle’s interior control panels shows data from surround view cameras and offers the driver a realistic 360-degree surround view to assist in maneuvering the vehicle to park and to alert the driver to obstacles in its path that may not be immediately visible.

The R-Car V3M is equipped with an integrated image signal processor (ISP), the IMR for low-power image rendering and the IMP-X5 computer vision engine. It delivers robust functional safety and high-performance at low-power consumption required for use in smart camera applications, surround view systems, and lidars, including NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) features.

The R-Car V3M is part of the Renesas autonomy Platform, an open, innovative and trusted platform for ADAS and automated driving. With this open platform, Renesas is the only automotive semiconductor supplier in the industry to cover end-to-end solutions from secure cloud connectivity and sensing to vehicle control.
