Enhancing Automotive Security for Connected Vehicles

Automotive control by electronic systems such as electronic control units (ECU) continues to become more advanced and sophisticated to achieve cars that are safe, comfortable, and environmentally friendly. Electronic systems have come to bear the intended function of automotive control, in particular in driving support systems such as collision avoidance and automatic following traveling systems. In such circumstances, the implementation of functional safety technology that performs safe handling even in the event of failure, and security technology that protects system operation from external attacks, has become essential.

Security Solutions


The RH850 is Renesas Electronics' latest automotive micro-controller family that offers high performance balanced with very low power consumption over a wide and scalable range of products. This family offers rich functional safety and embedded security features needed for new and advanced automotive applications.

R-Car Automotive System-on-Chip (SoCs)

Cars have come to be called "drivable computers." Countless connected MCUs and SoCs acquire data from actuators and sensors, and perform optimal processing to create earth-friendly cars. Advanced navigation systems not only make driving more pleasant, they also provide safety with danger avoidance systems using video recognition.
