With the recent claims by Elon Musk, founder, CEO, and Chief Engineer at SpaceX; early-stage investor, CEO, and Product Architect of Tesla, Inc.; founder of The Boring Company; and co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI, that cameras are the best and intelligent way to navigate the street in an autonomous vehicle.
The need for an intelligent camera with efficient applications dominated the market. The intelligent camera with R-Car V3M provides high efficiency in the image recognition engine and functional safety features. It also provides high-level integration for front camera application implementation with surround -view. It includes features like light detection and LiDAR ranging systems.
On top of it, it meets the evaluation criteria for the new car Assessment Program (NCP). The required system benefits are:-
- The video processing and image recognition are enabled with R-Car V3M. An image recognition engine, optimized performance-to-power balance, and a dual Arm® Cortex®-A53 and Cortex-R7.
- A wide range of multicore system-on-chip ICS (SoCs) is supplied by a flexible system power management IC (PMIC).
- The SoCs integrate the full power rail management with multiple sleep modes in an optimized system solution.
- The cost and the development time are reduced using PMICs verified for R-Car SoCs.
