Robosense have formed a partnership with FAW’s Hongqi. Autonomous driving solutions on the Hongqi Auto FEEA 3.0 platform will use multiple Robosense second-generation solid-state lidar sensors to create superior intelligent driving perception solution on several new Hongqi models to be produced from 2023. The new Robosense lidars use a highly-integrated 2D MEMS chip scanning architecture with a streamlined structure for stable, dependable product performance.
The FEEA3.0 platform is Hongqi’s new autonomous vehicle electronic and electrical architecture to underpin vehicle safety; reliability, and scalability, and can provide strong platform support for vehicle development.
Through the association with Hongqi Auto, Robosense intend to boost the production and commercialization of intelligent vehicles worldwide. They plan to further deepen cooperation with Hongqi in the mass production of automotive grade lidar. Robosense will support Hongqi in accelerating their large-scale production and marketing of intelligent vehicles.
Robosense are a tier-1 supplier for more than 40 vehicle models.
The success of Robosense’s RS-lidar-M1 among Chinese automakers demonstrates that MEMS-based lidar is a sufficiently mature technology to be integrated in ADAS and L3 AD systems. We forecast that in a couple of years, Chinese lidar suppliers will make inroads on the US and European markets, independent of their specific technology.
