Renesas Electronics Wins Tech.AD Special Jury Award 2018 with R-Car V3M-Based Front Camera Solution

TOKYO, Japan, March 12, 2018 ― Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced that it was awarded the Tech.AD Special Jury Award 2018 with its R-Car V3M-based front camera solution for advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD). The solution based on Renesas hardware and HELLA Aglaia software is part of Renesas’ open, innovative and trusted Renesas autonomy™ Platform delivering end-to-end automotive solutions from secure cloud connectivity and sensing to vehicle control.

The award ceremony was held during Automotive Tech.AD Berlin on March 5 at TITANIC Chaussee in Berlin, Germany. Presented by we.CONECT, a leading business information company, the prestigious Tech.AD Award exclusively recognizes, celebrates, and honors exceptional projects for automotive safety, ADAS and AD. The Jury consisted of Dr. Brendan Chan, Navistar, Dr. Florian Baumgärtner, Daimler and David Sanchez, Jaguar Landrover.

“The R-Car V3M based front camera solution enables product differentiation and faster time-to-market for applications targeting the rapidly-growing front camera market which is expected to exceed 200 million pieces over the next five years,” said Jean-Francois Chouteau, Vice President of ADAS Solution Business Division at Renesas Electronics Corporation. “As the automotive semiconductor industry leader, Renesas is committed to providing open, innovative, and trusted solutions for assisted and automated driving. We are honored that our R-Car V3M-based front camera solution and the open business model has received the TechAD 2018 award.”

The front camera solutions from the Renesas autonomy Platform ensure scalability from NCAP systems using R-Car V3M, to level 3 and 4 smart camera systems based on the lately announced R-Car V3H. The open solutions unlock the front camera market, by giving customers the choice to implement their own differentiators or work with Renesas’ globally leading partners, such as HELLA Aglaia.
