Renesas Electronics and Magna are hoping to accelerate the mass adoption of advanced driving assistance system (ADAS) features via what they describe as a cost-efficient 3D surround view system designed for entry- and mid-range vehicles. The 3D surround view system adopts Renesas’ SoC optimized for 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 drivers.


 Magna’s 3D surround view system is a vehicle camera system that provides a 360-degree panoramic view. Drivers can adjust the view of surroundings with a simple interface, while object detection alerts drivers about obstacles in their path. The system provides a realistic 360-degree view of their environment.


Reportedly, the ready-to-use system minimizes integration time and development costs, making the system an easy, cost-efficient option for automakers. Several automakers have already expressed strong interest in the technology, including a European automaker, which will be the first to integrate the 3D surround view system into a future vehicle.
