Open camera platform speeds ADAS development
Semiconductor manufacturer Renesas and automotive safety technology expert LUPA-Electronics GmbH have jointly developed an open front camera solution for driver assistance systems, based on Renesas R-Car SoCs. Targeting the latest Euro NCAP and C-NCAP requirements, the solution enables OEMs and Tier 1s to differentiate their offering by integrating their proprietary or third-party software that adds additional driving features.

Most smart camera turnkey solutions on the market today take a black box solution approach, making it challenging for OEMs and Tier 1s to address changing market demands and slowing down development. With the EagleCAM platform, Renesas and LUPA introduce an open turnkey solution that delivers flexible, high-performance perception while shortening time to market and reducing the bill of materials (BOM) costs. The platform enables OEMs and suppliers to implement features required by the current NCAP and C-NCAP formulations, such as automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, and traffic sign recognition.

Based on Renesas’ R-Car SoCs, EagleCAM supports low- to high-end front camera applications with extensions for surround view, driver monitoring, and augmented reality. In addition to the R-Car SoCs, EagleCAM also includes Renesas’ automotive power management ICs (PMICs) to further reduce BOM costs. With the recent update of the R-Car V3H, the new turnkey solutions benefit from the improved CNN performance of up to 3.7 TOPS, ASIL-C capability of the real-time domain and camera support of up to 8 Megapixels. EagleCAM features a pre-validated hardware design, shortening the time required to reach mass production. Customers can access best-in-class perception stacks that offer shorter turnaround time or stacks based on emerging technologies, allowing them to achieve the best fit for their application needs. 

The EagleCAM camera featuring R-Car SoCs are available now from LUPA.
