No single technology will make driving safer. Rather, this is accomplished through careful engineering that utilizes the many tools available to automotive designers.
Radar is proven technology, invisible behind bumpers and body panels, and well tested to be safe. Adding ASIL D control and automotive-grade metal-oxide nitride oxide silicon (MONOS) flash storage presents new opportunities that Renesas is researching. Renesas has developed an advanced Radar Flexible Digital processing approach along with safety-proven RH850 MCU for control.
This demo presents the result of our research and paves the way for new applications for smart and safe radar in production vehicles. A proof point rather than a product announcement, this demo intends to stimulate innovation in safety systems that could save many lives.
