Data to Improve the Cost, Convenience and Safety of Motor Vehicles
High Definition 3-D LiDAR – The Key Sensing Modality for Self-Driving Cars
Since its commercial debut in 2007, Velodyne's HDL-64 High-Definition 3D LiDAR has been the go-to perception sensor for autonomous motor vehicle navigation through complex environments. Velodyne sensors provide a 3D model of the world around the vehicle, including calibrated reflectivity data for precise localization, segmentation, and object tracking and classification within the environment. Now Velodyne has introduced the VLP-32 sensor platform, further improving performance and range for those seeking the best data for Level 2 through Level 5 self-driving programs.

The Most Trusted LiDAR Technology is Now Available in the Air
The Industrial Drone Revolution began with Data Collection LiDAR applications in aerial mapping and surveying. Now the same 3D LiDAR technology is available in a compact form factor weighing less than 600 grams. With parallel advancements in robotics software and computing efficiency, real-time localization and path planning have become possible mid-flight thanks to the VLP-16 Puck LITE.
Navigation On Natural Targets • Collision Avoidance • Object Profiling and Identification
Long-Range 3D LiDAR - Redefining Industrial Vehicle Navigation and Large Object Profiling
The real-world exists in 3D space, not a single-point sensor or slots on an encoder wheel. For years, multiple sensing technologies were used by industrial vehicles to navigate areas due to each sensors' limitations. In-floor magnets, wall-mounted reflectors, and multiple-type sensors are no longer needed with the VLP-16 PUCK 3D LiDAR scanner from Velodyne. The scanner simplifies the vehicle's design and lowers installation costs. In other industrial applications, the VLP-16 scanner is used to identify fast-moving objects in real-world 3D space.
The 3-D LiDAR Technology that Transformed Mobile Mapping
Worldwide LiDAR adoption began with 3D mobile mapping, the key building block to the Mobility Revolution. Our proprietary technology provides accurate distance and reflectivity measurements at highway speeds, enabling critical requirements such as road sign and lane marking detection. With our continued investment in R&D and operations, we are able to offer optimal sensor performance in a compact and competitive package. Thanks to our trusted distributors, integration partners and a fast-growing customer base, the same technology is now being used in both aerial and in-door mapping applications.
