Rightware, a provider of user interface software for the automotive industry, is collaborating with Renesas Electronics Corporation on a demonstration showcasing the capabilities of Renesas’ R-Car H3 System-on-a-Chip (SoC) and Rightware Kanzi. The demo presents a high-fidelity configurable digital cluster with infotainment and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) features and showcases the graphics capabilities of the R-Car H3 system-on-chip (SoC) and Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR GX6650 graphics processing unit (GPU).
Renesas and Rightware have already secured several automotive design wins for series production, where Rightware’s Kanzi software is being used for developing Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI) that run on the Renesas R-Car platform.
Renesas has joined Rightware’s Kanzi Partner Program as a founding member. The program is a global ecosystem of companies working together to develop and define the future of digital HMIs utilizing Kanzi.
Audi is using Kanzi for the design and engineering of its Virtual Cockpit digital cluster, as well as for developing several IVI (in-vehicle infotainment) solutions. Automotive Tier 1 leader Visteon leverages Kanzi in their development projects, with several vehicles currently in development at various OEMs.
