RoboSense has announced a strategic partnership with Banma Network Technology, an intelligent automobile operating system and solution provider that cooperated with Alibaba Group and SAIC Motor, and AutoX, China’s most advanced self-driving AI platform, to build a high-level autonomous driving platform for intelligent vehicles through in-depth cooperation in the 3D LiDAR sensor, AI algorithm, and intelligent automobile operating system, and create an advanced smart cockpit based on human-machine co-driving.

The cooperation will promote the integration of smart cockpits with autonomous driving systems through the fusion of hardware, software, and AI capabilities. RoboSense will provide the robust LiDAR sensor solution that not only meets the need for high-level autonomous driving systems, but also for Banma’s advanced intelligent cockpit systems. RoboSense LiDAR provides accurate environmental perception data for the AutoX autonomous driving system “AI driver”, and empowers the safety of Banma’s intelligent automobile operating system.

In January 2021, RoboSense and Banma jointly established the Intelligent Perception Innovation Center. Three months later, the two parties formed a mass-production-ready solution based on the intelligent automobile operating system and automotive-grade solid-state RS-LiDAR-M1, which meets the requirements of both autonomous passenger cars and the RoboTaxi.
