RoboSense a leader in autonomous driving LiDAR at CES 2020 announced the world’s first public road test of a vehicle equipped with a Smart LiDAR Sensor. Running outside the Las Vegas Convention Center daily during CES 2020 it showcased the latest technological progress in autonomous vehicle LiDAR.
The RoboSense RS-LiDAR-M1 Smart LiDAR is the world’s first MEMS Smart LiDAR Sensor to incorporate sensor hardware, AI perception algorithms, and IC chipsets, transforming conventional LiDAR sensors from an information collector to a complete data analysis and comprehension system, providing essential information for autonomous vehicle decision-making faster than ever before.
RoboSense128-beams LiDAR RS-Ruby and the short-range Blind Spot LiDAR RS-BPearl also went on public road demo. This super high-performance 128-beam LiDAR RS-Ruby possesses an ultra-high resolution of 0.1° and the range performance of 200m for a 10% reflectivity target.
Mercedes-Benz VISION AVTR – inspired by AVATAR is the result of an unprecedented global partnership between one of the most innovative brands in the entertainment industry and the eighth most valuable brand in the world, Mercedes-Benz. Inspired by the world of Pandora – the VISION AVTR shows a completely new interaction between human, machine and nature.
The holistic concept of the VISION AVTR combines the design disciplines interior, exterior and UX on an unprecedented scale. Instead of a conventional steering wheel, the multifunctional control element in the center console allows human and machine to merge. By placing the hand on the control unit, the interior comes to life and the vehicle recognizes the driver by his or her heartbeat and breathing. By simply lifting the hand, a menu selection is projected onto the palm of the hand, through which the passenger can intuitively choose between different functionalities. For example, real-time 3D graphics can be used to explore the fictional world of Pandora from different perspectives. The curved display module creates the visual connection between passengers and the outside world.
