This paper presents media processor architectures for automotive applications. Media processing applications with their requirements for LSI implementations are first described for vision based driver assistance as well as graphical user interface for car navigation using 3D graphics. Then, parallel processing architectures for vision and graphics in these applications are reviewed with their performance and cost. After that, future trends of automotive media processing such as integration of vision and 3D graphics functions are shown with their applications and the required performance. Moreover, parallel processing architectures are discussed for the integration of vision and graphics. Finally, an prospect of a next-generation media processing LSI for automotives is provided.
