A collaboration between Hesai and tech company Neta Auto will see Hesai’s lidar sensor integrated in Neta Auto’s new series production vehicle.
To enhance the ADAS driving functionalities of the new series production vehicle, which is expected to launch in the first half of 2025, Hesai will supply its ultra-high resolution long range lidar AT12.
AT128 is an automotive-grade long-range lidar with a resolution of 1,200 × 128. It also has the ability to output real-time 3D data at a rate of 1.53 million points per second and has a detection range of up to 200m.
Zhang Yong, co-founder and CEO of Neta Auto, said, “This collaboration featuring Hesai’s AT128 will effectively upgrade the new series production vehicle by enhancing Neta Pilot’s advanced intelligent driving system. I believe our cooperation will yield fruitful results and promote autonomous driving solutions to be used in more scenarios.”
As the primary lidar sensor for ADAS applications, AT128, since its mass production and delivery in 2022, has empowered numerous passenger vehicles from leading OEMs.
In 2022, Neta Auto introduced the “NNP” highway navigation assistance function to its Neta S model; its new series production vehicle will also showcase its latest R&D achievements on the intelligent driving function.
David Li, co-founder and CEO of Hesai, said: “Neta Auto is an emerging force in the EV sector, having achieved numerous accomplishments in areas such as automotive intelligence, global expansion, market orientation, and customer services.”
According to Neta Auto, these achievements include, maintaining a monthly sales volume of over 10,000 units, as to establish itself as a leading EV automaker. By September 2023, it has accumulated a substantial user base of nearly 350,000 customers.
“We are glad to reach partnership with Neta Auto, and together we are committed to achieve breakthroughs in intelligent driving for its new series production vehicle,” commented Li.
