Robosense and Controlworks Partner on Smart LiDAR Sensor Systems for Korean Automotive Industry

By Ken Briodagh August 07, 2019

RoboSense, a supplier of LiDAR perception systems for autonomous driving, and ControlWorks, a provider of automotive electronics systems in Korea, have announced a partnership to provide RoboSense’s Smart LiDAR Sensor Systems to Korean OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.

ControlWorks has agreed to provide localized sales channels, product services and technical support for the Korean market, while RoboSense will provide MEMS solid-state LiDAR perception systems for Level 3+ mass production autonomous passenger cars, according to the release.

“Korea has an advanced and complete automotive industry, while ControlWorks is a veteran in providing automotive electronic control systems that meet high safety and reliability requirements. We are honored to work with ControlWorks. Together, we will push forward for LiDAR perception system solutions to be implemented into the product strategy of automotive manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers,” said Mark Qiu, COO & Co-founder, RoboSense. “We will deeply cooperate with more companies and organizations promoting the mass commercialization of autonomous driving technologies through RoboSense’s advanced products.”

The mass production version of the RoboSense RS-LiDAR-M1, to be provided to OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, will have a built-in dedicated computing chip to run RoboSense’s proprietary AI point cloud perception RS-LiDAR-Algorithms, outputting the environment-perception results in real-time. Customers of ControlWorks will now not need an additional ECU on vehicle to run algorithms, which the company said will greatly reduce mass production cost and also save valuable space within the vehicle.

“Our partnership with RoboSense marks a major step in ControlWorks’ autonomous driving development. RoboSense not only has advanced LiDAR hardware, but also leads the industry in perception algorithms. RoboSense’s superior LiDAR system solutions will help us to serve the Korean autonomous driving market better. Combined with the long-term accumulation of ControlWorks’ long-term experience in the automotive field, we will provide the safer and more reliable smart LiDAR system together with RoboSense,” said Kenny Lee, CEO, ControlWorks.
