RoboSense partners with ControlWorks to provide Smart LiDAR sensor system to Korean automotive industry
RoboSense, a supplier of LiDAR perception systems for autonomous driving, and ControlWorks, a provider of automotive electronics systems in Korea, will partner to provide RoboSense‘s Smart LiDAR Sensor Systems to Korean OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, etc. ControlWorks will provide localized sales channels, product services and technical support for the Korean market.
Targeted to Level 3+ mass production passenger cars, RoboSense provides advanced Smart Sensors based on the RS-LiDAR-M1, a MEMS solid-state LiDAR. The mass production version of the M1, to be provided to OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, will have a built-in dedicated computing chip to run RoboSense’s proprietary AI point cloud perception RS-LiDAR-Algorithms, outputting the environment-perception results in real-time.
With this advanced Smart Sensor, customers of ControlWorks will no longer need an additional ECU on vehicle to run algorithms, which will greatly reduce mass production cost and also save valuable space within the vehicle.
Catering to transportation applications including passenger cars, RoboTaxis, unmanned low speed vehicles and shuttles, and V2R (vehicle to roadside systems), RoboSense provides customized Smart LiDAR Sensor Systems by combining its 16, 32, and 128 channel LiDAR, short-range blind spot LiDAR, and AI point cloud perception algorithms.
Currently, ControlWorks has integrated RoboSense’s perception system RS-Fusion-P3 system in their autonomous driving system, and they are planning to integrate RoboSense’s solid-state LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 in their next stage of testing.
