RoboSense has proudly announced they delivered over 20,000 automotive lidar units this past August—breaking the domestic record for monthly lidar shipments in the automotive sector. Having achieved a milestone of nearly 10,000 units in June, RoboSense accomplished an extraordinary feat in August by doubling their monthly sales. This achievement signifies a remarkable accomplishment, with monthly sales surpassing half of the total sales for the entire previous year.
Founded in 2014, RoboSense’s RS-lidar-M1 is the world’s first mass-produced solid-state lidar. Mass production and delivery began in June 2021. At the end of that year, RoboSense entered a supply partnership with BYD. Toyota is also among the automakers with which RoboSense has lidar supply partnership agreements.
In 2022, mass production began of the upgraded RS-lidar-M1P lidar. 2022 sales of the standard and -P models totalled up to 40,900 units.
As of March 31, 2023, RoboSense had received expected orders for 52 models of lidar from 21 car companies and tier-1 suppliers. Nine models have already started production.
