On the Tech Day event, RoboSense announced its new strategic financing round and cooperation with Luxshare, and also launched its flash solid-state LiDAR E1.


RoboSense (Chinese: 速腾聚创), a provider of Smart LiDAR Sensor Systems, held a new product launch and Tech Day event. During the conference, RoboSense officially launched RS-LiDAR-E1 (E1), a flash solid-state LiDAR based on its in-house, custom developed chips and flash technology platform. Also debuted was the only China National Accreditation Service (CNAS) recognized automotive-grade LiDAR lab of the industry to date, and held the unveiling ceremony of the smart manufacturing joint venture, Luxsense, jointly with Luxshare-ICT, a domestic leading electronics manufacturer.

RoboSense launched E1, the first automotive-grade flash solid-state LiDAR. It serves as a new product platform featuring area array transceiver technology with application-specific developed chips as the core. E1 is designed for large-scale series production with a simple bill of materials including no moving parts, and excels in all the three aspects of detection performance, cost efficiency and automotive-grade safety and reliability of LiDARs. As a key piece to realizing the core functions of autonomous driving, E1 will assist partners to further bridge the gap in smart driving perception and improve the all-scenario perception capability of automated and autonomous vehicles.

The 4 core features of E1

-  Horizontal FOV of 120°

-  Vertical FOV is designed to be 90°

-  Ultra-high frame rates of over 25Hz

-  Detection range of 30m @10%

E1 uses RoboSense’s first in-house, custom chips for flash solid-state LiDAR platform and its first 2D electronic scanning technology. With highly integrated chips that incorporate the three core components of transmission, reception, and processing, E1 greatly streamlines the circuit design and production processes, creating the performance and cost advantages necessary for the durability and reliability requirements of blind spot LiDARs in the automotive market.

 During the event, leaders of RoboSense and Luxshare (Chinese: 立讯精密) jointly held the unveiling ceremony of Luxsense. Investment in the first phase of RoboSense smart manufacturing system exceeded 1 billion RMB cumulatively; the plant area exceeds 55,000 square meters including nearly 20 automated production lines built with highly intelligent production software to achieve a top-level production efficiency of “a LiDAR every 12 seconds” and guarantees capacity by connecting our Shenzhen, Dongguan and Guangzhou plants.

Additionally, RoboSense announced a new strategic financing round which attracted top industry investors. In particular, industry investors in this new financing round include car companies with self-owned brands, emerging automakers, top luxury supercar brands, leading commercial vehicle companies, supply chain pioneers and the tier 1 institutions. Greatly empowered by capital investments from the industry, RoboSense gained unprecedented momentum and sustainability.
