The Chinese ADAS and autonomous driving market was worth about RMB5.9
billion in 2017 and is expected to reach RMB42.6 billion in 2021 at an
AAGR of 67% or so.

Automotive vision, MMW radar and ADAS are the market segments that
develop first with the MMW radar market enjoying an impressive growth
rate, closely followed by low-speed autonomous driving. While LiDAR,
commercial-vehicle autonomous driving and passenger-car autonomous
driving markets lag behind.

As the automobile enters an era of ADAS and autonomous driving, product
iteration races up and lifecycle of products is shortened. The
automotive market is far smaller than consumer electronics market but
sees bigger difficulty in design and higher design and production costs
than that in consumer electronics market. Thus automotive ADAS and
autonomous driving processor is confronted with higher risks. Hence
adequate financial and human resources are required to support the
development of automotive ADAS and autonomous driving processors.
Globally, only very a few enterprises like NXP and Renesas are capable
of developing whole series of ADAS and autonomous driving processors.

With regard to safety certification, autonomous driving chips must
attain ASIL B at least, a level only Renesas R-CAR H3 has reached for
now. As GPU is a universal design and not car-dedicated design, it is
hard to reach the certified safety level of ISO26262 from the point of
design. The certification cycle of ASIL is up to two to four years.

Reliability, precision and functionality of stereo camera are well above
that of mono camera, but as the stereo camera must use FPGA, it costs
much. High costs restraint the application of the stereo camera only on
luxury cars. However, with emergence of Renesas and NXP hardcore stereo
processors, the stereo camera will be vastly used in ADAS and autonomous
driving field, expanding from luxury models to mid-range ones.

With an explosive growth in data transmission, automotive Ethernet will
become a standard configuration of the automobile, and Ethernet gateway
or Ethernet switch is indispensable to autonomous driving.
