Design win; Renesas silicon enables Nissan Leaf auto-parking

September 13, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
Renesas Electronics has disclosed that its R-Car system-on-chip (SoC) for car infotainment and advanced driving assistant systems (ADAS), as well as its RH850 automotive control microcontroller (MCU), have been adopted by Nissan for the ProPILOT Park, a full-fledged automated-parking system, of its new LEAF, Nissan’s fully electric vehicle.

The R-Car SoC adopted in the ProPILOT Park of the new Nissan LEAF recognizes spaces adequate for parking, verifies that there are no obstacles in the way, and handles the role of issuing control commands for acceleration, braking, steering and shifting. The R-Car SoC includes Renesas’ parallel image processor (IMP) dedicated for image processing. The IMP takes the high-resolution images from the latest automotive CMOS digital cameras and performs high-speed, low-power signal processing. The RH850 MCU accepts the chassis control commands from the R-Car SoC and transmits these commands to the various electronic control units (ECUs) used. This enables the Nissan LEAF's ProPILOT Park to achieve safe and reliable parking operation.

The Renesas silicon is part of Renesas autonomy an advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving platform, designed to provide a safe, secure, and convenient driving experience for next-generation cars.
