FAW And RoboSense Collaborate On Solid-state Smart LiDAR Sensor

News

TRoboSense, the pioneering Smart LiDAR Sensor provider, announced a
partnership with FAW (First Automobile Works), an automotive OEM,
and showcased the milestone achievement of last year's cooperation: the
first batch of world's first solid-state Smart LiDAR Sensor RS-LiDAR-M1
on September 25.

The deal is to include RS-LiDAR-M1 as core component into FAW's proprietary next-generation autonomous driving system development, therefore accelerating the serial production of the world's first automotive-grade solid-state MEMS-based Smart LiDAR Sensor, in order to promote Level 3 vehicle autonomy and above.

The final commercialised version of RS-LiDAR-M1 is the world's first and only all-in-one unit MEMS-based Smart LiDAR Sensor for self-driving passenger vehicles with its own embedded AI algorithm technologies and SoC (System of Chip). It transforms traditional LiDAR systems (also known as solely data collectors), to full data analysis and comprehension systems.

The RS-LiDAR-M1 not only collects and interprets high definition 3D point cloud data, but its built-in AI algorithm and SoC also process road data in real-time, while at the same time synchronising outputs of high-precision localisation, obstacle detection, tracking and classification, road curbs and driving areas detection.

Unlike RoboSense Smart LiDAR Sensor, when mechanical LiDAR is used on a vehicle, a computer-sized ECU must also be used to operate the algorithms. Compared with ECUs, the RoboSense dedicated SoC built into the Smart LiDAR Sensor not only withstands strong bumps and jolts in the vehicle, but is also small and light-weight. The RoboSense Smart LiDAR Sensor's built-in SoC can largely reduce more power consumption while improving performance compared to automotive ECUs, saving much more passenger space at the same time.

The RS-LiDAR-M1 is cleanly designed in a streamlined body that allows it to be easily embedded onto any part of the vehicle for the complete aesthetics of automobile. Serial produced RoboSense Smart LiDAR Sensor costs only hundreds of dollars each, based on its deployment of revolutionary MEMS micro-mirror scanning structure and simplified manufacturing and streamlines production, while maintaining high product quality and reliability to meet exacting OEM requirements.

Fengjun Li, Director of Intelligent Connected Vehicle Development Institute, FAW, said, “China is standing at the front of the world's autonomous driving development. Our cooperation with RoboSense demonstrates our confidence in Smart LiDAR Sensor for Level 3 vehicle autonomy and above, and accelerates the commercialised development of our proprietary next-generation autonomous driving system.”

“The RS-LiDAR-M1 is a revolutionary product developed upon more than ten years of research development accumulated by the RoboSense team. We believe the partnership will enhance the serial production ability of automotive-grade Smart LiDAR Sensor for autonomous driving,” said Steven Qiu ChuanXin, RoboSense Founder and CEO.

At the signing ceremony, the closest to commercialised version of Smart LiDAR Sensor RS-LiDAR-M1 delivered by RoboSense will be used for FAW's automotive-grade testing and self-driving passenger cars research development. The current version has greatly improved performance while reducing the size to only the half of the former demo showcased on CES 2019, which can be easily integrated into any part of the vehicle body.

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
