We’ve told you about some CES 2020 technologies which might impact your work life. But imagine driving to work in a car that comes equipped with sensors, AI perception algorithms, and IC chipsets, enabling autonomous decision-making faster and, theoretically, safer.
RoboSense‘s Smart LiDAR car premiered at CES 2020 with what the company calls the world’s first public road test of a vehicle equipped with a Smart LiDAR Sensor.
RoboSense Co-Partner and Vice President of R&D, Dr. Leilei Shinohara, said, “After optimization based on large amounts of data, RoboSense’s algorithm performance and software stability and reliability have proven to have many key advantages.”
“Developed by RoboSense after more than a decade of exhaustive research in perception technology, it has combined the advantages of deep-learning-based AI algorithm with the traditional algorithms to keep functional safety. Since 2017, RoboSense’s algorithms have gained more than 100 global partners for various types of autonomous driving scenario certifications.”
During CES 2020, RoboSense128-beams LiDAR RS-Ruby and the short-range Blind Spot LiDAR RS-BPearl were also demonstrated. This high-performance 128-beam LiDAR RS-Ruby possesses a high resolution of 0.1° and the range performance of 200m for a 10% reflectivity target, says the company.
More features per the manufacturer:
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.
