Founded in 2014, RoboSense (Suteng Innovation Technology Co., Ltd.) is a leading provider of Smart LiDAR Sensor Systems incorporating LiDAR sensors, AI algorithms and IC chipsets, that transform conventional 3D LiDAR sensors to full data analysis and comprehension systems. The company’s mission is to possess outstanding hardware and artificial intelligence capabilities to provide smart solutions that enable robots (including vehicles) to have perception capability more superior to humans.

Attracted an all-star team from leading corporations and institutions around the world,there are 500+ employees in 6 global locations-Shenzhen, Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, Stuttgart, and Silicon Valley to support RoboSense’s fast-growing in innovation and development. Until 2019, RoboSense owns more than 500 patents globally.

Market-oriented, the company provides customers with various Smart LiDAR perception system solutions, including the MEMS, mechanical LiDAR HWs, fusion HW unit, and the AI-based fusion systems.

Dr. Leilei Shinohara joined RoboSbense in January, 2019. From 2015 to 2018, he was the Technical Lead, Asia OEMs at Valeo, and was responsible for automotive LiDAR, automotive active safety products, and sensor fusion. He has managed a team in six countries, responsible for developing systems, software, hardware, mechanics, testing/validation, and functional safety for the first automotive grade LiDAR product “Scala (Valeo)”.

In 2008, Dr. Shinohara began his PhD studies at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, and received his PhD degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering in 2014. During six years of PhD studies, Shinohara focused on LiDAR systems and was involved in sensor projects, including optical sensor analogue and design, optical quality measurement, Doppler LiDAR, and 3D MEMS micro-mirror LiDAR for autonomous driving.
