RoboSense, WeRide promote large-scale commercial application of autonomous driving technologies

Partnership to effectively promote large-scale commercialization and in-depth integration of the industry ecosystem.

RoboSense, a provider of Smart LiDAR Sensor Systems, is partnering with WeRide, a Level 4 autonomous driving technology company. This partnership will assist WeRide in accelerating its on-board application of automotive-grade smart solid-state LiDAR and speed up the large-scale series production and commercial application of autonomous driving technologies.

“We have been exploring the autonomous driving industry for years and we are about to see exponential growth in the large-scale commercial application of autonomous driving technologies thanks to the decisively positive macro environment,” says Chunchao Qiu, co-founder and executive president of RoboSense. “RoboSense has reached in-depth strategic partnership with WeRide, to support WeRide in achieving production and application of autonomous vehicles faster, more efficiently and on a larger scale with our large-scale production and delivery capacity of the leading smart solid-state LiDAR products, and to further deepen the auto industry reform by making pragmatic, bold and innovative efforts as a technology enterprise.”

“With the strong support from RoboSense, WeRide gained rich experience in the application of solid-state LiDAR to autonomous vehicles and formed ideal solutions,” says Tony Han, founder and CEO of WeRide. “The sensor kit has been further optimized in terms of size and power consumption, while maintaining consistent accuracy, stability, and safety in handling increasingly complex urban traffic conditions in China. This gives our next-generation SAE L2-L4 autonomous driving solution a strong competitive edge."

Constant technological innovation, aim at commercial application, and focus on large-scale production are the basis of this partnership. Currently, RoboSense has connected with upstream and downstream partners in the industry to integrate advantageous resources and establish a complete supply chain. Deployment of smart production lines of RoboSense in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other cities are basically completed, with an expected annual production capacity of one million units, which guarantees a continuous and stable supply of advanced and reliable products for WeRide and other partners.

Based on this strategic cooperation, the two parties will continue to deepen industrial integration through technological innovation to provide consumers with a safer, more comfortable, convenient and normalized autonomous driving travel experience.
