CAMPBELL, Calif., April 30, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seoul Robotics, a South Korean startup that is a pioneering 3D computer vision software for Lidar, announces that it has joined the Renovo ecosystem. Renovo is a leading automotive software company providing an open platform for level-4 autonomous vehicles. Autonomous fleets built on AWare now have access to Seoul Robotics powerful Lidar Vision Software for object and environment understanding.
The 3D lidar object detection developed by Seoul Robotics has been a central technology for enabling autonomous vehicles. However, the cost for making lidar perception software is far more than the sensor itself - costing tens of millions of dollars and years of continuous development. Seoul Robotics aims to make all lidar sensors intelligent and is laser-focused on creating automotive-grade 3D computer vision for lidar sensors. Due to the robustness of the technology – supporting 18 different lidar models from 4 different companies and easily extensible to new lidars – global OEMs and Tier1s have recently begun licensing the Lidar Vision Software. Now Seoul Robotics aims to help customers through Renovo’s AWare ecosystem.
“Renovo has been leading the horizontal development of autonomous vehicle industry with a vibrant ecosystem that is truly global,” said HanBin Lee, Captain of Seoul Robotics. “With the capabilities of scalability and reliability on AWare, Renovo aims to provide autonomous tech to a wide range of industry – we are happy to make the AWare enabled vehicles more intelligent and safer through our Lidar Vision Software.”
“Seoul Robotics' expertise in lidar software processing will add immense value to the Renovo ecosystem,” said Chris Heiser, Renovo CEO and Co-Founder. “The ability to bring industry-leading 3D computer vision technology to all our ecosystem partners is what AWare is all about and it’s wonderful watching the industry adopt the platform.”
As part of the Renovo ecosystem, Seoul Robotics can provide and support Lidar Vision Software to AWare-powered vehicles with various lidar sensor models, numbers, and settings. This versatility speaks to the value of the horizontal layer provided by the Renovo platform as it allows the innovative Lidar Vision Software developed by Seoul Robotics to be adopted and used across a wide array of vehicles. This mass-adaptability will be key to the future of transportation and is why Renovo is the leading open platform autonomous vehicles.
Renovo is an autonomous vehicle software company focused on enabling the global commercialization of autonomous vehicle fleets. Renovo’s scalable platform merges software, data management, and automotive-grade safety systems into a unified solution for autonomous vehicle fleet deployments. Renovo combines Silicon Valley agility with proven automotive capabilities in a singular commitment to bring autonomous vehicles to the greatest scale, highest safety and lowest cost imaginable.
