Platform Turns Lidar Sensors Into IoT Devices

Computer vision company Seoul Robotics has announced its first commercial product, Discovery – a ready-to-use lidar system platform that contains sensors equipped with Seoul Robotics’s software, Sensr, which is compatible with over 70 different types and brands of 3D sensors. The new product supports multiple lidar functions for traffic and city management.

From an article in Traffic Technology Today by Tome Stone.

Lidar has seen a boom in recent years thanks to its use in autonomous vehicles, but while the technology has many uses beyond self-driving, the development of discrete software has primarily been in-house at car companies.

Now, Seoul Robotics‘ platform will allow a wide range of organizations to utilize and benefit from 3D sensors in ways never before possible. The technology and integrated solutions are poised to help accelerate wide-ranging lidar adoption and enable large advancements in many industries and markets.

“To date, much of the focus for lidar has been in the development of autonomous vehicles, but the core function of the technology – mapping, tracking and identification – lends itself to a multitude of other industries and applications,” says HanBin Lee, co-founder and CEO of Seoul Robotics. “At Seoul Robotics, we’re applying deep learning with our own patented 3D computer vision to create the world’s most advanced software for 3D sensors. Our vision is to introduce lidar as a solution to new industries and ultimately facilitate a more intelligent, mobile and safe world.”

The backbone of Seoul Robotics is its proprietary software, Sensr, which uses machine learning to analyze and understand 3D LiDAR data with extreme accuracy for multiple applications including V2X communication, traffic safety, retail analytics, smart cities and more. The software is compatible with more than 70 different types and models of 3D sensors and supports a range of functions from basic tracking and monitoring to autonomous mobility.

Discovery is the first solution that enables 3D sensors to become IoT devices by marrying hardware with Sensr. With the launch of Discovery, Seoul Robotics has now simplified the lidar experience and lowered the barrier to entry for organizations wanting to implement insights from 3D data into their systems and processes. The Discovery product is customizable and comes equipped with everything in one package, creating a truly plug-and-play experience for anyone wanting to begin benefiting from Lidar-based solutions.
