Renesas Electronics Joins the Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium to Speed Autonomous Driving Vehicle Development

Collaboration Will Build Standard Framework in Vehicle Edge Computing and Accelerate Development of Autonomous Vehicles

TOKYO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 30, 2019 — Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced it has joined the Autonomous Vehicle Computing Consortium (AVCC) as a core member. Renesas joins leaders from across the automotive ecosystem, including vehicle OEMs, Tier1 suppliers, and other semiconductor suppliers to help solve some of the most significant challenges of deploying self-driving vehicles at scale.

As the automotive industry pushes forward to meet the needs of an increasingly connected environment, vehicles are evolving to become more intelligent, more ecologically friendly, and more affordable. Looking ahead, future autonomous vehicles will be operated with even more complicated and large-scale software driven by artificial intelligence. Vehicle edge computing platforms will play a key role in achieving the required ultra-high-performance computing within the power, thermal, size, security, and safety constraints. A standardized technical framework is also critical in order to share, re-use and incrementally improve developments resulting from this widescale automotive ecosystem.

On October 8, 2019, a group of leading automotive and technology industry companies including Arm, Bosch, Continental, DENSO, General Motors, NVIDIA, NXP Semiconductors, and TOYOTA announced that they were joining forces to help accelerate the delivery of safer and affordable autonomous vehicles at scale.
