Robosense develops lidar at fraction of cost

Robosense lidar system can detect objects

Robosense has developed intelligent perception lidar, a hardware and software algorithm for the mass production of safer autonomous cars. The RS-IPLS uses real-time data pre-processing and a gaze function similar to human eyes.


The company says the system is inexpensive, 1/400th the price of traditional 64-line lidar systems, and is designed for the mass production of vehicles at a low price.


Innoviz announces mems-based scanning lidar at CES

InnovizPro stand-alone, solid-state, mems-based scanning lidar

Innoviz Technologies announced at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas the commercial launch of InnovizPro, a stand-alone, solid-state, mems-based scanning lidar.

A CES Innovation Awards winner in the vehicle intelligence and self-driving technology category, InnovizPro is said to to deliver ground-breaking 3D sensing at a significantly lower cost.
