Targeted to Level 3+ mass production passenger cars, RoboSense provides advanced Smart Sensors based on the RS-LiDAR-M1, a revolutionary MEMS solid-state LiDAR which strikes a perfect balance between low cost and higher vehicle safety, reliability, and performance. The mass production version of the 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. With this advanced Smart Sensor, customers of ControlWorks will no longer need an additional ECU on vehicle to run algorithms, which will greatly reduce mass production cost and also save valuable space within the vehicle. From all aspects, the M1 meets the stringent requirements of mass production autonomous passenger cars.

Catering to the critical applications of smart transportation, including passenger cars, RoboTaxis, unmanned low speed vehicles and shuttles, and V2R (vehicle to roadside systems), RoboSense provides customized Smart LiDAR Sensor Systems by combining its 16, 32, and 128 channel LiDAR, short-range blind spot LiDAR, and AI point cloud perception algorithms. Currently, ControlWorks has integrated RoboSense’s perception system RS-Fusion-P3 system in their autonomous driving system, and they are planning to integrate RoboSense's solid-state LiDAR RS-LiDAR-M1 in their next stage of testing.

“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 the landing for LiDAR perception system solutions to be implemented into the product strategy of automotive manufacturers and Tier 1 suppliers” said RoboSense COO & Co-founder Mark Qiu. “We will deeply cooperate with more companies and organizations promoting mass commercialization of autonomous driving technologies through RoboSense’s advanced products.”

“Our partnership with RoboSense marks a major step in ControlWorks' in 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 sensor system together with RoboSense . " said ControlWorks CEO Kenny Lee.

RoboSense's LiDAR system provides stable and reliable environment information, including accurate long and close range detection, and the ability for use in extreme weather and lighting conditions, even with the interference of multiple LiDARs. Last March, the world's first all-weather driverless minibus GACHA equipped with RoboSense’s cold-resistant LiDAR was released in Finland by MUJI, Sensible 4, and RoboSense. In addition, because of RoboSense’s safe and reliable LiDAR system technology, RoboSense recently received a $45 million strategic investment from Cainiao Network (owned by Alibaba Group), SAIC Group and BAIC New Energy earlier in 2018.

Note: The Smart LiDAR Sensor System, consisting of RoboSense's advanced LiDAR hardware and AI point cloud perception algorithms are designed for the critical applications of smart transportation, including passenger cars, Robo-Taxi, unmanned low speed vehicles, and V2R (vehicle to roadside synergy system).

Study Investigates the Utility of Masimo ORi™, Oxygen Reserve Index, to Reduce Hyperoxia in Critically Ill Patients26.8.2019 09:00:00 EESTPress release

Masimo (NASDAQ: MASI) announced today that in a randomized controlled study involving 150 ICU patients recently published as a letter in Intensive Care Medicine, researchers investigated whether monitoring with Masimo ORi™ (Oxygen Reserve Index) could reduce the time critically ill patients spend with moderate hyperoxia, compared to monitoring with oxygen saturation (SpO2) alone.1 ORi is an index of oxygenation in the moderate hyperoxic region, defined as arterial partial pressure of oxygen, PaO2 , in the range of 100 to 200 mmHg). As an “index” with a scale between 0.0 and 1.0, ORi can be trended to notify clinicians of changes in a patient’s oxygen reserve. This press release features multimedia.
