AI chipmaker Hailo collaborates with Renesas to enable automotive customers to seamlessly transition from ADAS to automated driving

A common solution is available now to enable powerful, efficient and safe automotive ECUs

TEL AVIV, Israel, June 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hailothe cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) chipmaker, today announced its collaboration with Renesas, a leading provider of advanced semiconductor solutions, to provide a powerful and energy-efficient processing solution enabling advanced driver assistance features (ADAS) and automated driving (AD) systems in vehicles motorized. The joint Hailo-Renesas solution will make sophisticated ADAS technology more accessible in cars of all types.

The combination of Hailo-8 processors, designed for high Neural Network (NN) acceleration, with the powerful Renesas R-Car V3H and R-Car V4H systems-on-chip (SoCs), delivers robust, scalable, efficient and economic. effective ADAS solutions for zonal and centralized vehicle ECUs. The solutions are scalable for a wide range of ADAS functions, from ADAS L2+ functions to AD L4 functions requiring very high tera-operations per second (TOPS), while delivering best-in-class TOPS/W.

“ADAS and AD functionality have proven essential in minimizing accidents and saving lives. However, technological challenges have caused great difficulty for automakers looking to make these advanced features accessible in all but high-end vehicles,” said Orr Danon, CEO and Co.-Founder of Hailo. “With Renesas, we are delivering a solution that helps democratize ADAS, so that more and more drivers can take advantage of its benefits. AI will play a major role in making our roads safer, and with industry leaders industry like Renesas that helps us innovate, we’re going to make driving both safer and more affordable.”

“Automotive OEMs are looking for scalable solutions for ADAS and AD to streamline software development,” said Yusuke Kawasaki, director of automotive digital product marketing at Renesas. “We are confident that our collaboration with Hailo, which has expertise in AI technology, will allow our customers to easily extend the performance of the R-Car so that they can flexibly and quickly integrate the functionality ADAS/AD in different vehicle classes.”

Key features of the joint Hailo-Renesas solution include:

  • Independent scalability in AI and compute, enabling flexibility and cost effectiveness for ADAS Level 2+ to 4 designs
  • The highest performance solution available in the automotive market today, ranging from 60 TOPS to over 170 TOPS for multi-sensor perception and fusion
  • Best-in-class power efficiency, allowing ECUs to be passively cooled, reducing BOM and system cost
  • Functional safety for ADAS/AD ECU with Renesas R-Car (R-Car V4H expected to achieve ASIL-B and D metrics for real-time domain) and Hailo (Hailo-8 supports ASIL B)
  • An open software ecosystem allowing OEMs/Tier-1s more control and room for innovation

A single Hailo-8™ delivers unprecedented performance to peripheral devices. With up to 26 TOPS for a typical power consumption of 2.5W, the chip is built with an innovative architecture that enables edge devices to run sophisticated deep learning applications that previously could only run on the cloud . Hailo-8’s advanced structure results in higher performance, reduced power, and minimal latency, enabling increased privacy and better reliability for smart devices operating at the edge.

Hailo continues to make significant progress in the automotive industry, partnering with industry leaders to create high-performance, scalable AI solutions for automotive electronic control units (ECUs), enabling faster energy-efficient AI with low power consumption to advance automotive innovation.

Gasket Hailo Renesas Solution is available for customer evaluations and demonstrations. It will be presented live at Automobil Elektronik Kongress in Ludwigsburg (Germany) on June 28-29.
