Renesas R-Car Starter Kit available for Microsoft Platform
When developing vehicle electronics systems, engineers are increasingly relying on cloud mechanisms to increase productivity. Following this trend, chipmaker Renesas has now had its R-Car Starter Kit for its in-house automotive SoCs certified by Microsoft for its MCVP (Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform) development platform.

MCVP combines partner ecosystems with a horizontal platform of Azure cloud, AI and edge services. Mobility companies can build customer-centric solutions on top of it. Renesas has also been certified for Azure IoT Hub and Azure IoT Edge.

The Microsoft platform helps mobility companies deliver in-vehicle digital services, bi-directional network connectivity and continuous over-the-air updates of container features faster. Within Renesas' development environment, customers can use MCVP components and the Renesas Board Support Package (BSP) in addition to the multimedia package for R-Car. In addition, the R-Car Starter Kit is certified as an Azure IoT Edge Device .

With Renesas' development environment, customers can develop software in the cloud or on a local computer. It is then installed on an R-Car SoC for verification before being implemented in applications for vehicles or embedded mobility devices. Identifying potential implementation issues early in the development of connected cars makes the design process more efficient. The collaboration with Microsoft enables Renesas to drive the development of connected vehicles, promote the creation of Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and contribute to the rapid deployment of on-demand services.
