China's first Automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR production line
RoboSense has announced the launch of China's first automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR production line and would start mass production and delivery of the automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 for contract projects in Q2 this year.
RoboSense unveiled the SOP version of the automotive-grade LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 at the CES 2021. RoboSense says it has a slim design, excellent performance, and reliable point cloud quality. Since July last year, the RS-LiDAR-M1 has successfully received several orders for mass-production vehicle models worldwide. The first customer was an OEM from North America. In December last year, the RS-LiDAR-M1 samples were shipped to this OEM customer in batches and became the world's first mass-production-ready automotive-grade MEMS solid-state LiDAR delivered.
RoboSense has reached in-depth cooperation with Inceptio from 2019 to provide high-performance automotive-grade MEMS solid-state LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 for Inceptio's "Xuanyuan" system, the first full-stack self-developed autonomous trucking system for mass production. The two parties announced the partnership that the mass-produced L3 heavy-duty freight truck equipped with the "Xuanyuan" system would be launched on the market by the end of 2021.
Inceptio develops the ULRS (ultra-long-range sensing), ARC (robust adaptive control) and FEAD (fuel-efficient autonomous driving) algorithms, and the ULRS can make the system perceive an ultra-long distance of up to 1,000 meters with a margin of error standing below 5%. Inceptio has worked with Dongfeng Trucks and SINOTRUK, respectively, to develop L3 autonomous heavy-duty trucks. Mass-produced L3 heavy-duty trucks equipped with Inceptio's "Xuanyuan" system complete with RoboSense LiDAR inside will be delivered by year-end.
