RoboSense launches lidar solution for Robo Taxis outside of China

RoboSense has developed a complete lidar perception solution for Robo Taxi (RS-Fusion-P5) in markets outside China. The RS-Fusion-P5 was first launched in China last month.

The company is positioning the RS-Fusion-P5 as an alternative to Waymo’s LiDAR solution.

RoboSense RS-Fusion-P5 uses an RS-Ruby on top of the vehicle to ensure a sensing range with a radius of more than 200 meters. However, even if the vertical field of view (FOV) of RS-Ruby reaches the perfect angles from -25° to +15°, there is still a small blind zone around the vehicle body. Therefore, to cover the small blind zone, 4 RS-BPearl are embedded sideways around the vehicle to form a hemisphere FOV scanning area relative to the vehicle’s perspective, to guarantee a complete 360° surrounding view.

The RS-Fusion-P5 solution fuses point clouds from RS-Ruby and RS-BPearl in real-time, and generates laser points of more than 4,600,000 pts per second.

RS-Ruby achieves the anti-interference of multiple lidar using special laser encryption technology to filter interference signals. Meanwhile, it is not affected by the strongest direct-sunlight.

The embedded four RS-BPearl form a hemispherical FOV coverage of 90 ° * 360 °, which not only can precisely identify objects around the vehicle body such as pets, children, roadbeds as well as other details of the near-field ground area, but also detect the actual height information under particular scenarios such as bridge tunnels and culverts, further supporting autonomous vehicles for driving decision making and greatly improving car safety.
