The company has identified the LiDAR supplier for the first model as Hesai Technology and will use one AT128 hybrid solid state radar as the main radar and several full solid state radars as fill radars. Full solid state LiDAR has a larger field of view and a smaller blind area than hybrid solid state LiDAR, making it suitable for use as a blind filler. Xiaomi’s configuration is superior to current solutions that use a hybrid solid-state radar.

The choice of solid-state LiDAR sensors over the hybrid ones offers a much bigger viewing (reception) angle which makes them much better at covering blind spots. It’s an expensive choice but offers superiority to Xiaomi’s setup over the competition. The Hesai’s AT128 LiDAR sensor is used by Li Auto in its Li L9 SUV which just debuted in China.

The company believes that the end game of competition in the smart electric vehicle industry is autonomous driving, and that LiDAR is a key sensor to enable high-level autonomous driving. Their self-driving technology is in its testing phase and should be at the top of the industry by 2024.
