- Up to 4k resolution images for high details, supported by video signal processing unit
Renesas’ video processing units in the R-Car H3 allow the composition of surround view with overlay of smart camera pictures at ultra-high definition resolution (UHD), providing high flexibility for Tier1s and OEMs for the choice and quality of the final image.
- High performance for application and object detection
The ARM® Cortex®-A57/A53 cores of the R-Car H3 provide 40,000 DMIPS (Note 3) enhanced processing for the application and computer vision implementations. In addition, OpenCL on the GPU provides software engineers the option to implement cognitive functionality, bringing additional safety features.

(Note 2) SAE International (SAE) definitions for levels of automation for vehicles. The SAE definitions divide vehicles into levels based on “who does what, when.” At SAE Level 3, an automated system can both actually conduct some parts of the driving task and monitor the driving environment in some instances, but the human driver must be ready to take back control when the automated system requests.
