The Edison Awards is one of the world's prestigious awards that symbolize the persistence and excellence in innovation and honors the most innovative products and business leaders in the world. It is Established in 1987 and named after inventor Thomas Alva Edison and sometimes referred to as “The Oscars of Innovation”. All the winners were chosen as the "best of the best" by the globe review panel consist of 3,000 senior business executives and academics.
The RoboSense RS-LiDAR-M1 is the world’s first and smallest MEMS Smart LiDAR Sensor to incorporate sensor hardware, AI perception algorithms, and IC chipsets, transforming conventional LiDAR sensors from an information collector to a complete data analysis and comprehension system, providing essential information for autonomous vehicle decision-making faster than ever before. The RS-LiDAR-M1 meets every automotive-grade requirement, including intelligence, low cost, stability, simplified structure and small size, vehicle body design friendliness, and algorithm processed semantic-level perception output results.
As the game-changing product in the autonomous driving field, the RS-LiDAR-M1 hard-ware only version is currently available for customers, with a retail price of $1898. The smart sensor version is currently available for key customers who have purchased the solid-state LiDAR A-C Sample Kit. At CES 2020, the RoboSense RS-LiDAR-M1 also demonstrated that it is the world’s first and only Smart LiDAR capable of real road tests on open roads.
