Autonomous driving LiDAR perception solution provider RoboSense announced at CES today the first public road test of a vehicle equipped with a Smart LiDAR Sensor.
The RoboSense Smart LiDAR car, featuring the RS-LiDAR-M1 Smart LiDAR, is running outside the Las Vegas Convention Center daily during CES 2020, showing the latest technological progress in autonomous vehicle LiDAR. Exhibitions at RoboSense’s CES Booth are also showcasing the real-time 3D point cloud data on a vehicle equipped with the multi solid state LiDAR fusion system.
The RoboSense RS-LiDAR-M1 Smart LiDAR is the first MEMS Smart LiDAR Sensor to incorporate sensor hardware, AI perception algorithms, and IC chipsets, transforming conventional LiDAR sensors from an information collector to a data analysis and comprehension system, providing information for autonomous vehicle decision-making faster than ever before.
During CES 2020, RoboSense128-beams LiDAR RS-Ruby and the short-range Blind Spot LiDAR RS-BPearl also go on public road demo. This high-performance 128-beam LiDAR RS-Ruby possesses an ultra-high resolution of 0.1° and the range performance of 200m for a 10% reflectivity target.
The RS-BPearl, the first mass-produced short-range LiDAR for blind-spot detection, reaches the minimum detection range of less than several centimeters, with hemispheric FOV coverage of 90° * 360°, which not only precisely identifies objects around the vehicle’s body, but can also detect the actual height information in particular scenarios, such as with bridge tunnels and culverts.
