RoboSense Provides LiDAR For The Autonomous Driving Shuttle Bus Gacha

News

RoboSense, a provider of LiDAR perception technology solutions, has announced that it has provided cold-resistant all-weather LiDAR for the world’s first autonomous driving shuttle bus for all weather conditions, Gacha.

Gacha is equipped with RoboSense's advanced cold-resistant 16-beam mechanical LiDAR environment perception system to operate vehicles in harsh winter and other severe weather conditions. The autonomous shuttle bus robo-taxi Gacha was designed in collaboration with Finnish autonomous driving company Sensible 4, who provided software for positioning, navigation, and obstacle detection; MUJI, who provided expertise in design and user experience; and RoboSense.

Under extreme weather conditions, the performance of critical sensors, such as LiDARs and cameras, are severely impacted. Low temperatures, such as in Finland, at -30°C (-22°F), can incapacitate semiconductor components, while snow and icy roads cripple the image algorithms' ability.

Under these circumstances, RoboSense's new cold-resistant LiDAR is essential since it “sees” a 3D world through emitting and receiving lasers pulses, with point cloud algorithms that accurately recognise obstacles, even in snow and ice.

RoboSense will join Sensible 4 on their first Gacha bus fleet public road deployment in April, as well as future projects in Finland and abroad. “I'm pleased that our product has helped Sensible 4 and MUJI's jointly designed Gacha self-driving bus solve perception problems in all weather conditions. All RoboSense multi-layer LiDAR products will soon operate in low temperatures under -40℃,” said Mark Qiu, COO, RoboSense.

“The RoboSense LiDAR hardware and environment perception algorithms we use are reliable and stable, even at freezing temperatures of tens of celcius degrees below zero,” said Harri Santamala, CEO of Sensible 4.

RoboSense (Suteng Innovation Technology Co., Ltd.) is a LiDAR environment perception solutions provider. Founded in 2014, with offices in Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai, Germany, and U.S.,RoboSense is delivering LiDAR environment perception solutions, with innovations in FPGA, LiDAR, AI algorithms, and bespoke intelligent environment perception LiDAR systems.
