Velodyne Lidar’s CEO Dr. Ted Tewksbury was prominently featured in two Geospatial World articles, discussing how our company is bringing our mission to create smart technology for a world in motion to life.
In an article called Intelligent Infrastructure, Smart Cities to be Biggest Lidar Markets in Coming Years: Velodyne CEO, Ted reviews how Velodyne’s lidar sensors and software are playing an important role in applications including in geospatial and mapping, as well as last mile delivery, industrial and robotics, manufacturing and infrastructure.
In discussing the role our lidar-based systems can play in helping build resilient and sustainable infrastructure, Ted is quoted saying:
“Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution (IIS), which combines lidar sensors with Bluecity’s powerful AI software, is a breakthrough and first-of-its-kind solution that creates a real-time 3D map of roads and intersections by reliably collecting data in any lighting or weather condition – supporting 24/7, 365 days a year operation, while also protecting people’s privacy.”
Ted was also featured in a Geospatial World article that spotlights visionary comments from a number of leading executives. In the story, called Seizing the Future, Ted discusses how the use of lidar in infrastructure systems and 3D mapping is central to making digital cities a reality, as the technology allows for efficient and cost-effective ways to map large areas in hours, rather than weeks.
Ted also states how lidar “has the power to dramatically improve the safety, sustainability and efficiency of a world in motion.” To learn more about the Intelligent Infrastructure Solution, check out this video:
