RoboSense Wins CES 2020 Innovation Award for Autonomous Vehicle Technology

RoboSense Wins Award for World’s First MEMS-based Smart LiDAR Sensor for Self-Driving Passenger Vehicles

RoboSense http://www.robosense.ai, the world's leading autonomous driving LiDAR perception solution provider, announced today that it has won the CES 2020 Innovation Award the second year in a row for autonomous vehicle technology. RoboSense won this year's CES 2020 Innovation Award for the first MEMS-based Smart LiDAR Sensor, the RoboSense RS-LiDAR-M1, winning in the Vehicle Intelligence and Self-Driving Technology category.


The RoboSense award-winning RS-LiDAR-M1 is the world's first and only MEMS-based smart LiDAR sensor for self-driving passenger vehicles with its own embedded AI algorithm technologies and SoC(System on a Chip). The RS-LiDAR-M1 goes beyond traditional LiDAR, providing full data collection and comprehension. As a ground-breaking product, the RS-LiDAR-M1 not only collects and interprets high definition 3D point cloud data, but also processes road data in real-time, with a built-in AI algorithm and SoC, while at the same time synchronizing high-precision positioning output; road traffic signage; lane markings, driving areas, road curbs, and obstacle detection; tracking; and classification. Also, it is the world's smallest MEMS-based solid-state LiDAR, providing a low cost, high stability, and superior manufacturability to meet automotive-grade and serial production requirements.

"Driving Safety is the most critical challenge for the Autonomous driving vehicles. Perception is the first sense for the AD vehicles to precept the surrounding environment. To ensure a completely safe perception working in all conditions, LiDAR with smart perception algorithm and supporting functions are indispensable. We are very proud that our smart LiDR sensor concept have been recognized by the customers and different application users, " said Dr. Leilei Shinohara, RoboSense Vice President of R&D.

The RoboSenseRS-LiDAR-M1 Smart LiDAR Sensor will be on display in the Innovation Awards Showcaseat the upcoming CES 2020. The complete list of CES 2020 Innovation Honorees, including product descriptions and photos, can be found at CES.tech/Innovation. RoboSense will be exhibiting at booth 6138, LVCC North Hall, CES 2020 from Jan. 7 - 10, 2020, and tabletop No. 602 at CES Unveiled Las Vegas, on Jan. 5, 2020, 5 - 8:30 p.m. PST.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
