RoboSense will launch the RS-LiDAR-M1, showcasing the potential of their MEMS optomechanical system design, with breakthrough improvements in detection distance, resolution, Field of View (FOV), reliability, and other LiDAR sensing technologies.
The new RS-LiDAR-M1 with patented MEMS technology claims to offer ground-breaking vehicle intelligence awareness to fully support Level 5 automated driving.
Some of the features of the LiDAR, according to the company are:
• An increased horizontal field of view by nearly 100% compared to the previous generation, reaching an 120° field of view, so that only a few RS-LiDAR-M1s are needed to cover the 360° field of view.
• With only five RS-LiDAR-M1s, there is no blind zone around the car with dual LiDAR sensing redundancy provided in front of the car for a L5 level of automatic driving.
• The RS-LiDAR-M1 achieves a breakthrough on the measurement range limit based on the 905nm LiDAR, with a detection distance to 200 meters.
• With final output point cloud effect detection capability is greatly improved through the upgraded optical system and signal processing technology, which can now clearly recognize even small objects,such as railings and fences.
• Based on the target production cost at $200 each, the cost of five RS-LiDAR-M1 is only 1/100th the highest mechanical LiDAR available to the market, which is more inline with the cost requirements for the mass production of autonomous vehicles.
