The non-luxury segment would get the new cost-efficient 3D surround view system for advanced driving assistance system (ADAS).
Japan-based Renesas electronics, an industry-leading supplier of automotive semiconductor solutions, and Canada-based Magna, a mobility technology company and one of the world’s largest automotive suppliers, aim to accelerate the mass adoption of advanced driving assistance system (ADAS) features with a new cost-efficient 3D surround view system designed for entry- and mid-range vehicles.

The 3D surround view system adopts Renesas’ high-performance, low-power system-on-chip (SoC) that is optimized for the smart camera and surround view systems. By enabling 3D surround view safety capabilities, the new system helps automakers to deliver safer and more advanced vehicles to a larger number of car consumers, contributing to a safer vehicle society.
Magna’s 3D surround view system is a vehicle camera system that provides a 360-degree panoramic view to assist drivers when parking or performing low-speed operations. Drivers can adjust the view of their surroundings with a simple-to-use interface, while object detection alerts drivers about obstacles in their path. The system provides drivers with a realistic 360-degree view of their environment, a significant upgrade to the bird’s-eye view offered by existing parking assist systems.
Shinichi Yoshioka, senior vice president and deputy general manager, automotive solution business unit, Renesas Electronics Corporation said, “Automated driving systems require scalability to address the wide range of requirements of car consumers. The collaboration is an important step in delivering cost-efficient 3D surround view system across vehicle classes, bringing valuable safety features to diverse price ranges.”
Kelei Shen, president of Magna Electronics said, “The collaboration with Renesas is a great example of how companies can jointly develop and deliver a greater number of optimized, cost-effective semi-autonomous features to a variety of different vehicle segments. By combining our strengths we will be able to put advanced driver assistance and safety technology into more vehicles and to more drivers.”
