Israeli simulation software data provider Cognata Ltd. is providing 3-D point cloud synthetic data to South Korea’s Seoul Robotics, which has an office in Ann Arbor, in a partnership designed to boost LiDAR perception technology.
The venture brings Cognata’s advanced synthetic datasets to Seoul Robotics’ efforts in automotive LiDAR training and smart cities LiDAR perception solutions.
“Using realistic synthetic data will enable Seoul Robotics to create more robust and reliable LiDAR perception solutions in the AV and smart city space by tackling hard edge cases that cannot be tested in the real world,” says HanBin Lee, founder and captain of Seoul Robotics.
According to Reportlinker.com the LiDAR market projected to reach $2.8 billion by 2025 from an estimated $1.1 billion in 2020.
“We see a great future in our mutual ability to use synthetic data for advanced LiDAR detection training,” says Danny Atsmon, founder and CEO of Cognata.
