At CES, E1 made its debut before the overseas audiences and attracted the most visitors among all RoboSense LiDAR products exhibited.the overseas audiences and attracted the most visitors among all RoboSense LiDAR products exhibited.

E1 is another revolutionary product that RoboSense has launched after RS-LiDAR-M1 (M1 for short). As the “last piece of the puzzle” of automotive-grade solid-state LiDAR perception, E1 has no internal moving parts, and is particularly compact that can be easily integrated into customers’ own systems. It can be installed at the fender, door or front of the vehicle.

Note: How small and light is E1? Even better than visitors’ guesses, the size is similar to a business card (A7)

E1 is equipped with RoboSense’s first in-house developed chips designed for the solid-state LiDAR platform and 2D electronic scanning strategies. Chip level integration of transmission, reception and signal processing greatly simplifies product circuit design and production processes, and features utmost performance and cost advantages. E1 provides a 120°×90° ultra-wide FoV, supports over 25Hz ultra-high refresh rate, and has a ranging capability of 30m@10%. It is the most ideal LiDAR for intelligent vehicle systems to achieve zero blind area.

A number of new products of the RoboSense M series made their debut at the same time. The M series is based on RoboSense in-house developed 2D MEMS smart scanner chips and achieved the technological breakthrough of advancing from 1D mechanical scanning to 2D chip-based scanning. It features high performance, low cost, high reliability and high scalability, leading LiDAR products into the era of large-scale mass production. The M series is the only LiDAR product in the industry that can achieve continuous performance upgrades. Seamless iteration and upgrading can be achieved under the same size, installation specification, connector and protocol conditions, which caters to different needs of car company customers for dynamic upgrading of smart perception solutions.
