March 25, 2021, Shenzhen, RoboSense (https://robosense.ai/), the automotive-grade smart LiDAR supplier, today released a sensing performance test video of the automotive-grade solid-state LIDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 (the SOP version) in extremely challenging snowy cold weather (-18℃~-23℃) in northernmost area of China. It is also the first cold winter test of automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR.
The RS-LiDAR-M1 were mounted and tested on the passenger car and the L3 heavy-duty freight truck of Inceptio Technology in China's northeast region including Yakeshi, Inner Mongolia, and Heihe, Heilongjiang. Various cold winter scenes for the testing include snow-covered urban streets and arterial roads, and other outdoor snow-covered roads on sunny days.
Moderate Snow, -18℃, Level 4~5 Northwest Wind, Snow-Covered Urban Arterial Road
Light Snow, -23℃, Level 4~5 West Wind, Snow-Covered Urban Streets
The SOP version of MEMS solid-state LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 adapts to all weather &working conditions for intelligent vehicles. The snowy and cold winter test results prove that the SOP version of sensing scanner RS-LiDAR-M1 has reliable perception performance, with clear and stable point cloud output under low-visibility moderate snow and low-temperature (-23 degree) weather in various road scenes.
RoboSense has adopted VDA6.3 as the basis of project management and control, fully implemented the requirements of the IATF16949 quality management system and ISO26262 standard, and has integrated ISO16750 and other automotive-grade reliability specifications, to carry out a series of verification tests on M1, including random mechanical vibration, mechanical shock, splash water, stone impact, high and low-temperature storage and operation, solar radiation, EMC, chemical corrosion, salt spray and others. The cumulative test time of all M1 test samples has exceeded 300,000 hours, the longest-running prototype has been in continuous operation for more than 700 days, and the total road test mileage has exceeded 200,000 kilometers.
At CES2021, RoboSense has officially unveiled the SOP version of the automotive-grade LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1, which features a slim design, excellent performance, and reliable point cloud quality. This month, RoboSense has launched China’s first automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR production line and would start mass production and delivery of the automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 for contract projects in Q2 this year.
