Israeli vehicle simulation software specialist Cognata is partnering South Korean LiDAR perception company Seoul Robotics to provide 3D point cloud synthetic data in order to boost Seoul Robotics LiDAR perception software technology.

The partnership with Seoul Robotics follows on Cognata partnering with South Korean firm Hyundai Mobis.

Cognata provides synthetic datasets and simulation software for ADAS and autonomous vehicle systems. The company’s synthetic datasets will boost Seoul Robotics LiDAR perception development and help accelerate their efforts on automotive LiDAR training and smart city LiDAR perception solutions.

The market for LiDAR is growing rapidly. Market research firm has projected that it will increase to $2.8 billion by 2025 from an estimated $1.1 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 20.7% from 2020 to 2025.

“We are excited to partner with Seoul Robotics – a leading LiDAR perception company, and we see a great future in our mutual ability to use synthetic data for advanced LiDAR detection training,” said Danny Atsmon, CEO and founder of Cognata. “We are proud to be part of the development of this market by partnering with such an innovative Korean based start-up company.”

“Seoul Robotics is happy to collaborate with the leading AV simulation company, Cognata. 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,” said HanBin Lee ,founder and Captain of Seoul Robotics.
