APRIL 2020 I DESIGN007 MAGAZINE 35 RoboSense MEMS-based LiDAR M1 uses 905nm lasers, boasting low cost, automotive grade, and compact size. Parts have been reduced from hundreds to dozens in com- parison to traditional mechanical LiDARs, greatly reduc- ing the cost and shortening production time—achieving a breakthrough in manufacturability. The coin-sized optical module processes the optical-mechanical system results to meet autonomous driving performance and mass pro- duction requirements. In December, RoboSense's LiDAR production line, in- cluding RS-LiDAR-M1 has obtained the IATF 16949 certifi- cation in the automotive field, which now fully qualifies it to supply to automotive customers. As the winner of the CES Innovation Award in 2019 and 2020, RoboSense RS-LiDAR-M1 also demon- strated that it is the world's first and only Smart LiDAR capable of real road tests on open roads at CES 2020. RoboSense, the world's leading au- tonomous driving LiDAR perception so- lution provider, has been honored as a winner in the transportation and logis- tics category for 2020 Edison Awards. The Edison Awards is one of the world's prestigious awards that symbolize the persistence and excellence in innova- tion and honors the most innovative products and busi- ness leaders in the world. "We are very proud that our Smart LiDAR Sensor has been recognized by 2020 Edison Awards. It stands for the global industry experts' recognition of RoboSense prod- uct design, development, and production processes and also indicates that RoboSense has achieved a new mile- stone of complete readiness for mass production of auto- motive LiDARs. We will continuously improve the product performance for the safety and mass production develop- ment of autonomous vehicles," said Dr. Leilei Shinohara, RoboSense co-partner and vice president.

For seven years, Sun- stone Circuits was named one of the Healthiest Employers of Oregon. In addition to incentives for getting annual physicals, seeing the dentist, and participating in company-wide challenges, we provide an onsite walking trail, fitness room, and compa- ny-organized running and walking events. We have received a lot of positive feedback from employees who are healthier as a result of a lifestyle change we helped promote. From health tech to wellness programs, our industry is uniquely impacted by this new paradigm. We not only participate in the trend toward healthier lifestyles; we're also helping to build the technology that makes peoples' lives better. Whether it's a treadmill that mea- sures distance covered and calories burned, a wearable device that measures your VO max, or an AI-powered insulin pump, the future of wellness is here, and we are thrilled to be part of it.
