RoboSense announced that the solid-state LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1Simple (Simple Sensor Version) is now ready for customer delivery, priced at $1,898.  The new RS-LiDAR-M1Simple is less than half the size of the previous version, with dimensions of 4.3” x 1.9” x 4.7” (110mm x 50mm x 120mm), and is equipped with enhanced hardware performance virtually equal to the serial production version provided to OEMs.  The main body design of this automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR is finalized and ready for shipment.

RoboSense also demonstrated a smart solid-state LiDAR, the RS-LiDAR-M1Smart (Smart Sensor Version), at CES 2020 in Las Vegas with an on-vehicle public road test.  The RS-LiDAR-M1Smart main body is embedded with an AI perception algorithm that takes advantage of LiDAR’s potential to transform conventional 3D LiDAR sensors into a full data analysis and comprehension system, outputting semantic-level structured environment information in real-time to be used directly for autonomous vehicle decision making. 

The RS-LiDAR-M1 family inherits the performance advantages of traditional mechanical LiDAR, simultaneously also taking into consideration requirements for the mass production of vehicles.  The RS-LiDAR-M1 family meets automotive-grade requirements, including intelligence, low cost, stability, simplified structure and small size, vehicle body design friendliness, and algorithm processed semantic-level perception output results.
