Renesas and HELLA Aglaia combine on ADAS front camera system

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on :2017-12-05
Renesas and HELLA Aglaia, the visual sensor systems specialist, have announced their open and scalable front camera system for ADAS.

Thefront camera system combines the R-Car V3M, Renesas’ high-performance, low-power image recognition SoC for New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), and HELLA Aglaia´s  camera software designed to meet level 2 (partial automation) and level 3 (conditional automation) of the SAE International’s new J3016 standard.

Designed for scalability, the system enables system designers to build a wide range of front cameras from cameras supporting NCAP to cameras supporting requirements for up to level 3 applications.

This collaboration opens up the market for front cameras as sensor vision is projected to become a major requirement for NCAP over the next several years. This is driven by the rapid adoption of NCAP safety features such as automated emergency braking, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition.

OEMs & Tier 1s are seeking open-but-proven solutions with the right performance and cost efficiency balance to provide them the freedom to implement a front camera with their own differentiators.

The Renesas R-Car V3M SoC implements a computer vision platform using different accelerators, including a versatile pipeline engine (IMP) and a computer vision engine (CVE), allowing the R-Car V3M to run convolutional neural networks for the classification of objects and to manage algorithms like optical flow and object detection.

The R-Car V3M also features an integrated ISP and a single DDR3L memory channel offering potential for further cost reductions. The R-Car V3M is part of the Renesas autonomy Platform: Renesas’ ground-breaking platform for ADAS and automated driving that delivers total end-to-end solutions scaling from cloud to sensing and vehicle control.

HELLA Aglaia’s software solutions will shorten the development time, efforts, and risk for the next wave of front camera customers. As an experienced Tier 2 supplier of field-proven camera software for level 2 and level 3, HELLA Aglaia delivers software that is flexible and portable and that can be combined with Tier 1 or OEM software IP, allowing customers to focus on creating their USPs. The software is scalable and covers from low-cost NCAP applications up to level 3-based front camera applications.

The Renesas R-Car V3M is available now. The application software delivered by HELLA Aglaia is scheduled to be available in Q1 2018.
