RoboSense, a smart LiDAR system technology company, announced on Friday a strategic partnership with DeepRoute.ai, an L4 autonomous driving company.
Based on the all-round 3D environment perception capabilities of the smart solid-state LiDAR system, the two companies will integrate their technical strengths and industry resources in order to promote L4 autonomous driving. The RoboTaxi mobility platform will have a more advanced, automotive-grade, low-cost autonomous driving solution compared to other vehicles in its class.
Zhou Guang, CEO of DeepRoute.ai, spoke about the partnership: “DeepRoute.ai is committed to making autonomous driving safer, smarter and more reliable. We have launched the world’s first L4 autonomous driving solution costing only $10,000, which has thus lifted the cost restriction on the mass production of L4 autonomous driving. We will work with RoboSense on a deeper level to present new possibilities for the pre-installed automotive-grade mass production in the autonomous driving industry.”
RoboSense and DeepRoute.ai have so far had a solid partnership. DeepRoute.ai recently released its own L4 autonomous driving solution for pre-installation – DeepRoute-Driver 2.0, which uses RoboSense’s second generation smart solid-state LiDAR, RS-LiDAR-M1, as its main LiDAR. This is the first adoption of automotive-grade mass-produced LiDAR by an L4 autonomous driving company in China.
In addition, as a pioneer in LiDAR solutions and smart sensor software, RoboSense has partnered with DeepRoute.ai, IDRIVERPLUS, Pony.ai, and many other enterprises in regard to L4 RoboTaxi’s autonomous driving.
