Starter Kits

H3 and M3 Starter Kit

R-Car starter kits for automotive software development enable users to easily build automotive Linux platforms that are standardized by the Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) and GENIVI® open source communities and that are highly extensible and can be used for wide variety of applications. The lineup consists of two kits, one with the R-Car H3 and one with the R-Car M3. They have compatible interfaces.

V3M Starter Kit

The V3M Starter Kit simplifies the development of automotive software and accelerates to enable new ADAS and AD applications for applications like front camera, surround view and lidar. The Starter Kit based on the V3M system-on-chip (SoC), which is customized for high performance and low power consumption. The Starter Kit is a ready-to-use kit including the required interface and tools, including Renesas’ open-source estudio integrated development environment (IDE).
