The RoboSense Automotive Grade MEMS LiDAR Perception System is a revolutionary automotive solution that makes autonomous driving safer, easily mass produced, and lower cost. In addition to the Stevie Award, the RoboSense system is a CES 2019 Innovation Award winner. The system includes automotive grade MEMS solid-state LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 and RoboSense’s unique perception RS-LiDAR-Algorithms for a complete system that lets the vehicle understand the road environment for safer autonomous driving. RoboSense’s system offers ground-breaking mass production-ready hardware and software based vehicle environmental perception to support Level 3 to Level 5 autonomous driving at a fraction of the cost.

In preparation for autonomous vehicle mass market growth, RoboSense recently launched the Smart Sensor System (SSS), which combines RoboSense LiDAR sensors, AI point cloud algorithms, and an IC design for chip development. Created for four key smart transportation vehicle applications: autonomous passenger cars, low-speed autonomous vehicles, high-speed RoboTaxis, and V2R (Vehicle to Road infrastructure ), the RoboSense Smart Sensor System is a smarter information interpreter that collects and interprets environmental information in one-stop for safer and more intelligent autonomous driving.

Stevie Award Judges Say RoboSense System “will take autonomous driving to the next level” “Impressive product with great growth potential

A Stevie Award judge said the “MEMS LiDAR Perception System costs 1/500th the cost of mechanical LiDAR and provides higher resolution and better field of view. With intelligence perception algorithms, it can clearly recognize small objects, such as railings and fences and works in all weather conditions and at night and has no blind zone. It is automotive grade and has longer detection distance, making it ideal for autonomous solutions.” Another judge said it is “ the best performer in the category and will take autonomous driving to the next level.” And another judge concluded, the RoboSense System is “Innovative technology which cuts costs and improves performance greatly. This has everything in its favor and offers the complete package for next generation vehicles.”

More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

“We are honored to be recognized by the prestigious American Business Awards for our innovative LiDAR technology that propels autonomous driving into mass production for use by everyone, from passenger cars, RoboTaxis, logistics vehicles, shuttle buses, and more,” said Mark Qiu, Co-Founder & COO, RoboSense.

“The nominations submitted to The 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding. They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high level of achievement across the American economic landscape,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
