Elevating Auto Safety: Hesai And Webasto Team Up To Integrate Lidar In Roof Sensor Modules

Hesai Group HSAI has signed a partnership agreement with Webastoan automotive supplier of roof systems.

Hesai will provide automotive lidar sensors to Webasto for its Roof Sensor Module for passenger cars with ADAS.

Hesai's AT128 long range lidar has been integrated in Webasto's current Roof Sensor Module, featuring several cameras and lidars.

Webasto system includes an entire sensor set, together with other antennas, concealed under a full-surface polycarbonate cover that blends with the vehicle's silhouette.

Lidar, which can provide accurate information about the size, shape, location, and movements of surrounding objects, is becoming a key component in new ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) technologies designed to improve safety performance.

Also, lidar can directly capture the 3D positions of objects, giving it an advantage in detecting objects directly, rather than needing to be trained to recognize objects, like cameras.

Hesai's long-range lidar AT128 generates ultra-high resolution point clouds and perceives objects as far as 200 meters away.

Its new ET25 long-range lidar is only 25 mm thick and is suitable for both rooftop and behind-the-windshield installation.

"We want to see our cutting-edge lidar technology adopted by leading automotive OEMs and become a mainstream component in series-production vehicles," said Bob in den Bosch, Senior VP of Global Sales at Hesai Technology.

Price Action: HSAI shares are trading lower by 0.76% at $10.42 in premarket on Tuesday.
