RoboSense Provides LiDAR to GACHA -- First Autonomous Driving
RoboSense Provides LiDAR to GACHA -- First Autonomous Driving Shuttle Bus For All Weather Conditions Co-Developed by MUJI & Sensible 4
Before GACHA, Autonomous Cars Operated Only in Ideal Weather Conditions; RoboSense's LiDAR "Sees" a 3D World, Even in Finland's Snow & Extreme Temperatures Reaching -30°C (-22° F)SHENZHEN, China, March 15, 2019 — (PRNewswire) — RoboSense http://www.robosense.ai, a leader in LiDAR perception technology solutions and CES 2019 Innovation Award Honoree, announced today that it has provided cold-resistant all-weather LiDAR for the world's first autonomous driving shuttle bus for all weather conditions -- GACHA. GACHA is equipped with RoboSense's advanced cold-resistant 16-beam mechanical LiDAR environment perception system to operate vehicles in harsh winter and other severe weather conditions. The autonomous shuttle bus robo-taxi GACHA was designed in collaboration with Finnish autonomous driving company Sensible 4, who provided software for positioning, navigation, and obstacle detection; MUJI, who provided expertise in design and user experience; and RoboSense.
Under extreme weather conditions, the performance of critical sensors, such as LiDARs and cameras, are severely impacted. Low temperatures, such as in Finland, at -30°C (-22°F), can incapacitate semiconductor components, while snow and icy roads cripple the image...
