The tools will allow developers to connect applications to the cloud out-of-the-box. Renesas has also adopted AWS’ cloud services and Greengrass for its software development tools. The software development tools have been validated by AWS Greengrass and AWS IoT core and have been tested to run on the R-Car Starter Kit under Automotive Grade Linux environment.
The new toolset includes:
A simulator that can generate vehicle data from the accelerator, brake pedals and the steering angle.
An edge controller that maintains the vehicle data
A vehicle Application Programming Interface (API) that links with applications such as driver monitoring
Interfaces that connect vehicle data to the cloud
