New Plug-and-Play System Expands LiDAR Technology Beyond Autonomous Vehicles
Seoul Robotics’ Voyage solution is said to deliver highly accurate object detection, tracking and classification capabilities.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Seoul Robotics, a 3D computer vision company using AI and machine learning for intelligent robotic perception systems, announces the commercial launch of Voyage, a plug-and-play LiDAR perception system.
This all-in-one deployment kit — equipped with the company’s proprietary software SENSR2, LiDAR sensors and a computer— is said to allow customers to simply unbox the product, plug it in and instantaneously start seeing real-time results.
The company’s sensor-agnostic perception software is available worldwide and is currently deployed by top-tier organizations such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Chattanooga Department of Transportation, Emart, among others.
Seoul Robotics provides companies, institutions and governments with the software behind the sensor that enables end user solutions across verticals — from retail to smart cities to security and beyond. With the launch of Voyage, the company says it is empowering organizations and communities to increase efficiencies and improve safety through a cost-effective, customizable system.
Seoul Robotics says the marketplace is flooded with LiDAR companies producing sensors to fuel the demand of this industry, but most sensors on the market are sold without any intelligence. It says this approach is similar to selling a computer without a monitor — leaving companies to develop software in-house, significantly increasing the time and cost of deployment.
With Voyage, organizations are not obligated to purchase a particular sensor if it is not a perfect fit for the solution they are deploying and will never have to worry about changing software when they change or upgrade their sensors — Voyage is a non-proprietary solution that breaks down the barriers to entry and allows for quick access to 3D vision.
“First and foremost, LiDAR sensors do not work without sophisticated perception software. The LiDAR industry is investing billions of dollars on sensors without even considering the software needed to interpret the data into actionable solutions,” says HanBin Lee, CEO of Seoul Robotics. “Voyage combines analytics and sensors to bring tangible solutions to market much faster.”
Voyage is said to deliver highly accurate object detection, tracking and classification capabilities to enable a wide range of applications for smart cities, intelligent transportation systems, retail analytics, crowd monitoring, security and more. It fuses together three cutting-edge technologies:
- Industry-leading 3D LiDAR sensing powered by Seoul Robotics’ proprietary software SENSR2
- Edge computing for minimum data burden and ease of integration
- Built-in perception software for instantaneous analytics
This system not only leverages Seoul Robotics’ leading advantages in developing long range, high resolution and cost-efficient LiDAR solutions but also opens up the door to a variety of applications where data privacy is protected with anonymous scanning and analytics — no data is ever captured, shown or stored, according to the company.
Voyage is said to provide centimeter-accurate 3D object detection, tracking and classification in addition to volumetric profiling and motion prediction capabilities, regardless of lighting conditions, and can collect and process data from up to four sensors for seamless insights across the sensor coverage zones.
As Voyage does not capture, show or store any biometric and otherwise identifying data, it aims to maximize the protection of people’s privacy when installed as part of various smart cities and security systems.
