China Beijing International Automotive Sensor Technology and Data Report 2024

Dublin, May 31, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Monthly Monitoring Report on China Automotive Sensor Technology and Data Trends (Issue 3, 2024)" report has been added to's offering.

Insight into intelligent driving sensors: "Chip-based" reduces costs, and the pace of installing 3-LiDAR solutions in cars quickens.
LiDARs were installed in 173,000 passenger cars in China in Q1 2024, an annualized upsurge of 144.2%.

According to the statistics from the publisher, LiDARs were installed in 173,000 passenger cars in China in Q1 2024, soaring by 144.2% from the prior-year period, with the installation rate increased from 1.7% to 3.6%, and most were applied by Chinese independent brands. In 2024, in addition to emerging brands like AITO, Xiaomi, and Leapmotor that have launched new cars equipped with LiDAR, Geely's new car Galaxy E8 carried LiDAR for the first time. Models to be launched with LiDAR include WEY Blue Mountain Intelligent Driving Edition (to be launched in June 2024, with 1 unit), 2nd-generation AION V (to be launched in July 2024, with 1 unit), Avatr 07 (to be launched in H2 2024, with 1 unit), Changan NEVO E07 (optional, to be launched in October 2024, with 2 units) and Yangwang U7 (to be launched in H2 2024, with 3 units).

In Q1 2024, single-LiDAR solutions were installed 147,000 passenger cars, 142.7% more than in the same period last year, sweeping 85.2%, with the installation rate rising from 1.5% to 3.1%. They were largely mounted on AITO M7, Li L9 and NIO ES6 among others to support their use of advanced intelligent driving functions such as urban NOA. 3-LiDAR solutions were installed in 14,000 passenger cars compared with 4,000 cars in the same period of the previous year, with a year-on-year growth rate hitting 241.2%, higher than the 1-LiDAR and 2-LiDAR solutions, as a result of a low base last year and the higher sales of brands such as Avatr, Yangwang and ARCFOX.

ARCFOX ?S Advance Edition PRO, available on market in April 2024, is priced at RMB256,800. It comes standard with 3 Huawei LiDARs and HUAWEI ADS2.0 advanced intelligent driving solution, supporting such functions as CAS (Collision Avoidance System), smart parking, RPA (Remote Parking Assist), and AVP (Automated Valet Parking). This model has obtained a L3 autonomous driving public road test license in China.

With integration into robotaxis and cockpits and headlights, LiDAR has a bright future
According to Luminar, a listed US LiDAR company, Tesla accounted for more than 10% of the company's revenue for Q1 2024, that is, Tesla contributed more than USD2 million. It is supposed that these LiDARs will be used for testing robotaxis to support robotaxi products Tesla released in August 2024 and Musk's plan to launch robotaxis in China. Chinese robotaxi players such as Baidu Apollo, and WeRide also adopt the technology route of using LiDAR as the main sensor.

Not only Robotaxi, LiDAR can also be integrated into the cockpit and headlights. For example, DJI Automotive demonstrated its solution at the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition. This solution integrates four types of sensors: LiDAR + stereo sensor + mono sensor+ inertial navigation. Among them, stereo sensors provide dense point clouds, and LiDAR is mainly used to make up the ranging accuracy. Compared with the common LiDAR + front camera solution on the market, the LiDAR-vision solution can reduce the cost by 30% to 40%. This solution is scheduled to be mass-produced in late 2025 or early 2026.

At the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, Hesai Technology and Marelli together demonstrated the integration of Hesai's ATX LiDAR into Marelli's premium automotive lighting solution. This solution maintains the vehicle's sleek aesthetics and aerodynamic profile. It both protects the LiDAR and makes it easier to keep the LiDAR clean without an additional cleaning system.

'Chip-based" helps reduce costs, and more "1,000 yuan" LiDARs are launched.

At the Beijing International Automotive Exhibition, multiple LiDAR products featuring '1,000 yuan' and 'extreme cost performance' were unveiled.

For example, RoboSense launched MX, a LiDAR based on full-stack chip implementation technology (which uses chip to implement the full-stack system with scanning, processing, and transceiver modules). Using the self-developed dedicated SoC M-Core to integrate the entire backend circuit into a single chip reduces MX's motherboard area by 50%, the power consumption by 40%, and the price to less than USD200. In Q1 2025, the first batch of MX products will be spawned and installed in cars.

Hesai Technology's ATX ultra-wide FOV long-range LiDAR based on the fourth-generation chip architecture features cost performance. It still uses the mature architecture of "chip-based transceiver + 1D scanning" for Hesai AT Series. The higher integration of the transceiver module and the simplified core optical scanning structure enable 60% smaller size, 500g lighter weight, the minimum exposed window height of only 25mm, and only 8W power consumption.

Zvision Technologies released ZVISION EZ5, an extremely cost-effective product which is designed on the highly integrated SPAD chip platform design. A single SPAD chip replaces most of the previous discrete components of optoelectronic front-end ? amplification link ? analog-to-digital conversion ? digital signal processing, simplifying architecture and further reducing costs.

WLR-760 LiDAR launched by VanJee Technology adopts the VCSEL+SPAD route. Compared with conventional rotating mirror solutions, it reduces the material types by 60%. It reduces the total number of materials by 80% compared with the conventional semi-solid rotating mirror solution. Thanks to higher integration, the production processes are reduced by up to 30%. By VanJee's estimate, when shipments reach more than 100,000 units, the cost can range at RMB1,000-1,500.
