RoboSense LiDAR Wins CES 2019 Innovation Award for Autonomous Car Technology with “Gaze” Function Similar to Human Eyes
Revolutionary RoboSense RS-IPLS Intelligent Perception LiDAR System is the First Hardware & Software Algorithm Based Solution Created for the Mass Production of Safer Autonomous Vehicles
November 12, 2018, Shenzhen, China – RoboSense http://www.robosense.ai, the world’s leading autonomous driving LiDAR perception solution provider, today announced that it has been named a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for the RoboSense RS-IPLS Intelligent Perception LiDAR System. The announcement was made during CES Unveiled New York on November 8, 2018, an invite-only tech event bringing together top media, exhibitors and industry leaders for a sneak peek of the products and trends expected at CES 2019, which will run January 8-11, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
An annual program that celebrates outstanding design, the CES Innovation Awards recognizes honorees across 28 product categories. A panel of judges, including designers, engineers and members of the tech media, reviews submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering and how the products compare with competition.
The RoboSense Award-Winning RS-IPLS Intelligent Perception LiDAR System with“Gaze” Technology
Building on RoboSense’s more than 10 years of algorithm developing experience, the RS-IPLS system is based on high-performance MEMS solid-state LiDAR with the highest resolution color point cloud data created by merging the underlying 2D imagery hardware with the unique RoboSense RS-LiDAR-Algorithm deep learning sensing algorithm developed specifically for autonomous driving.
The innovative RS-IPLS features the new RoboSense RS-LiDAR-Gaze “Gaze” Technology, which initiates a “gaze” processing mechanism that instantly locks the target for ROI (Region of Interest) processing when it perceives a target of interest in its field of view, thus achieving the clearest and most stable environmental data. The LiDAR architecture maintains a high degree of vigilance of the surrounding environment, constantly capturing the areas of interest, allowing the “gaze” technology to transfer efficient and high-quality feedback in the field of view.
The first hardware and algorithm-based solution provider for autonomous driving, RoboSense believes that robots have an environmental perception that transcends human eyes. In October 2018, RoboSense obtained $45 million in strategic financing from Alibaba’s Cainiao network and some of China’s top OEMs -- the largest single financing ever in China’s LiDAR industry. Since its inception, RoboSense has adhered to its underlying core technology innovations, from chips to LiDAR sensors, to intelligent sensor systems that incorporate AI aware algorithms. RoboSense maintains strong innovation capabilities and continues to lead the industry.
“We are honored to be recognized by technology trade show leader CES with the coveted CES® 2019 Innovation Award for our new revolutionary RoboSense RS-IPLS MEMS based technology that is intelligent, accurate, lower cost, and faster,” said Mark Qiu, RoboSense Co-founder. “We are committed to creating a brand new sensor system. Based on the perfect extraction of environmental information, the RS-IPLS is able to sense environment in a large scale, constantly capturing information from ROI to achieve the unique “gaze” function, which can safeguard autonomous driving. ”
The CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, owner and producer of CES, the world’s largest and most influential technology event. CTA has been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
The RoboSense RS-IPLS Intelligent Perception LiDAR System will be on display in the Innovation Awards Showcase at the upcoming CES 2019. The complete list of CES 2019 Innovation Honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at CES.tech/Innovation.
