Today, Hesai Technology showcased three sensors designed explicitly for uncrewed systems and robotics applications at Xponential 2023 in Denver, Colorado.
Xponential gathers leaders and experts to discuss design, operationalization, integration, and safeguarding uncrewed and robotic technologies from May 8th through 11th. The theme is “The Blueprint for Autonomy;” the first several days of the event are full of educational sessions covering the design, operation, and integration of autonomous technology.
Hesai’s three lidar sensor systems are:
AT128 – an automotive-grade, long-range, ultra-high resolution lidar sensor.
With a horizontal FOV of 120°, a 200 m detection range, and an ultra-high 1200 x 128 overall resolution, AT128 acts as the vehicle’s second set of eyes. Its excellent 3D sensing capability can detect obstacles in advance, empowering the vehicle to make the safest decision.
QT128 – a blind spot solution for L4 robotaxis and robotrucks.
It has a vertical FOV at 105°, providing comprehensive blind spot coverage that detects objects at extremely close range. QT128 passed over 50 design validation tests and has received ISO 26262 ASIL B functional safety certification. It is robust and reliable during long operation hours, increasing workflow productivity implemented in warehouses, factories, and long-haul trucking.
XT32 – a design for broader robotics applications, including uncrewed logistics, cleaning, and robot fleets for warehouses and factories.
This sensor is for high-range accuracy and precision (between 0.5 and 1 cm) for measurement applications such as capturing internal warehouse schematics. It also has a minimum range of 0, effectively detecting an object even if it directly touches the sensor’s enclosure.
