The R-Car V3M is an SoC that is primarily for front camera applications, but also surrounds view systems, driver monitoring, or even lidars; and, it enables NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) features. NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) is a government car safety program tasked with evaluating new automobile designs for performance against various safety threats.
A challenge for front cameras is how to provide high performance for computer vision while supporting low power consumption and a high level of functional safety. Since front cameras are mounted next to the windshield, the rise in temperature due to not only the heat generated by the components themselves but also direct sunlight must be taken into consideration. Thus, the requirements for low power consumption are especially stringent. The R-Car V3M solves this challenge and improves the power efficiency of camera system development.
R-Car V3M is certified ASIL B according to ISO26262, which drastically reduces the effort for ASIL ECU development.
R-Car V3M uses the R-Car SDK (Software Development Kit), an easy to start & easy to use development framework for the R-Car V Series SOCs from the successful Renesas Autonomy Platform.
