Nissan Adopts Renesas’ Automotive Chips for New Skyline ProPILOT 2.0

August 8, 2019 Laura Dolan

Nissan Motor Co. has adopted Renesas’ automotive technology for the ProPILOT 2.0 system featured in the new Nissan Skyline.

The ProPILOT 2.0 is a driver assistance system that merges navigated highway driving with hands-off, single-lane driving capabilities, leveraging Renesas’ R-Car automotive system-on-chip (SoC) and RH850 automotive control microcontroller (MCU) to operate in the electronic control units (ECUs) that maintain driving judgment and control. 

The ProPILOT 2.0 connects to the vehicle’s navigation system, keeping it on designated roadways’ predefined route as well as on-ramp and off-ramp highway driving.   

"We are honored that Nissan has adopted Renesas automotive semiconductors in the ProPILOT 2.0 system featured on the new Skyline,” said Renesas’ EVP, General Manager of Automotive Solution Business Unit, Shingo Yamamoto. “Nissan’s confidence in the processing performance and quality of our semiconductors and in Renesas as a partner in the overall project of advanced driver assistance system ECUs made it possible to combine our technological expertise for development. I look forward to seeing our relationship with Nissan to grow even stronger."
