The Chinese company Hesai showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show (Ces) in 2022 underway in Las Vegas some advanced and low-cost products capable of giving impetus to the development of self-driving vehicles, currently in difficulty.
Hesai, a Shanghai-based high-tech company, unveiled At128, a long-range solid-state hybrid lidar for driver assistance systems (ADAS) applications in mass-produced passenger and commercial vehicles.
In practice, a remote sensing system that provides the essential perception capabilities required by autonomous L3 + vehicles and could be seamlessly integrated into vehicles, as the company’s director of public relations Connie Su explained to Xinhua, adding: “This system It has a detection capability of 200 meters at 10% reflectivity, with effective ground detection up to 70 meters. It is one of the few solid-state hybrid lidars on the market that can detect objects at a great distance, while still reaching such a frequency. of measurement “. In addition to high reliability, At128 greatly simplifies the traditional and complex assembly process, thus increasing the efficiency and consistency of manufacturing for the needs of mass production, which will be launched in 2022.
Hesai also unveiled a new sensor, Qt128, a short-range lidar with an ultra-wide 105-degree vertical field of view, which provides a solution for the blind spots of robotaxis and robotrucks. Qt128 will begin mass production in 2023.
Lidar, acronym for ‘light detection and ranging’, is a fundamental instrumentation used in the control and navigation of self-driving vehicles. Researchers predict that by 2025, around 8 million autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicles will be on the road.
