Automotive integrated cockpit control is a challenging space due to the integration of multiple and diverse cockpit functions. The R-Car M3-based electronic control unit (ECU) reference system is targeted for integrated cockpit applications. This system is pre-configured to showcase multiple complex integrated cockpit features as an out of the box development experience. It can then be reconfigured, upgraded or expanded to create a solution that will match a customer’s unique needs.

System Benefits
