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.
