GAC AION, GAC Group’s wholly-owned subsidiary dedicated to NEV business, has adopted the second-generation smart solid-state LiDAR of RoboSense for its ADiGO autonomous driving system.
The ADiGO system has been applied in several mass-produced models of GAC AION. Powered by the ADiGO 3.0 version, the AION LX and the AION V are capable of Level 3 autonomous driving functions on highways and urban expressways.
According to RoboSense, its second-generation solid-state LiDAR rides on the two-dimensional MEMS chip scanning architecture, which can help lift LiDAR’s perception capability.
GAC Group and RoboSense jointly showcased the autonomous driving solution using the latter’s LiDAR devices at both the 2018 Auto Guangzhou and the 2019 Auto Shanghai.
RoboSense is dedicated to providing smart LiDAR sensor systems incorporating LiDAR sensors, AI algorithms and IC chipsets. In April 2021, the company announced its a strategic partnership with Chinese autonomous driving startup AutoX and Banma Network Technology, a smart car operating system and solution provider backed by Alibaba Group and SAIC Motor, in a bid to build a high-level autonomous driving platform for intelligent vehicles through in-depth cooperation in the 3D LiDAR sensor, AI algorithm, and intelligent automobile operating system, and create an advanced smart cockpit based on human-machine co-driving.
