Pioneer Smart Sensing Innovations Corporation is developing a “next-generation 3D-LiDAR sensor capable of measurement at long distances of 500 meters, and has exhibited a prototype model of this new sensor at CES2020. Together with Canon Inc, PSSI is engaged in co-development of 3D-LiDAR sensors, which are regarded as an indispensable key device for the realization of autonomous driving in level-three and above autonomous vehicles .PSSI has also exhibited a massproduction model of 3D-LiDAR sensor (wavelength 905nm), which utilizes Micro Electric Memory Systems mirror-based scanning method and Canon’s optical technologies, at CES2020. The newly developed next-generation 3D-LiDAR sensor is a 1550nm wavelength sensor model which, although based on the same core technologies developed by PSSI and Canon, offers a greatly extended measurement distance made possible by the addition of transceiver technologies developed by SK Telecom Co Ltd. The new sensor is capable of high resolution and measurement at long distance of 500m.

The addition of this next-generation model, along with the mass-production model (which will be available in Short Range, Medium Range, Telescopic and Angle types) scheduled mass-production in autumn 2020, will enable PSSI to support to various markets and customer needs, ranging from monitoring applications such as security, infrastructure sensors and long-distance measurement in autonomous driving vehicles. PSSI is also able to develop and offer software that will enable high precision object detection and vehicle localization using various types of LiDAR sensors.
