SOSLAB’S LIDAR ‘ML’ FOR AUTOMOTIVE WINS CES INNOVATION AWARD
>> Fish-eye Solid-state LiDAR released at CES 2021.
GWANGJU, South Korea --SOSLAB that specializes in LiDAR, won the CES 2021 Innovation Awards at the world's largest electronics exhibition 'CES 2021,' for its Solid-state LiDAR ‘ML’ for automotive.
The CES Innovation Awards are awarded by about 50 expert judges who select the most innovative products in 28 categories each year. The products selected for this innovation award are displayed at the CES Innovation Showcase from January 11th.
SOSLAB’s Solid-state LiDAR ‘ML’ for autonomous vehicles won the Innovation Awards in the Vehicle Intelligence & Transportation category. This award recognizes the excellence of this product ML: Compact LiDAR without moving parts inside which enables simpler vehicle sensor deployment in terms of size, weight and stability.
The mechanical type of LiDAR currently used for research on autonomous driving has a limitation in mass production due to the system complexity caused by the moving components; ML is easy to mass-produce with a simple structural design which is expected to attract attention in the automotive LiDAR market.
ML was previously unveiled at KES2020 held at the COEX Exhibition Hall last year and will be supplied to strategic partners only, launching prototype products in the global market at CES 2021.
SOSLAB’s CEO, Jiseong Jeong said, “SOSLAB will become a company that makes the world smarter with LiDAR. Along with the verification of ML's technical excellence, we plan to complete product performance verification and auto-grade qualification by the second half of this year by securing additional capital with the goal of mass production of Solid-state LiDARs in 2022. SOSLAB will grow into a company that leads the global LiDAR market by commercializing LiDAR for vehicles.”
