Lidar sensors have emerged as a powerful asset for security solutions providers in building next generation safety and security applications.
A Lidar News story covered how Knightscope has selected Velodyne’s Puck lidar sensor to power its future 5th Generation Autonomous Security Robots (ASR). The article quotes William Santana Li, chairman and chief executive officer of Knightscope, saying:
“As Knightscope has scaled across the country, we’ve utilized Velodyne’s technology on our 3rd and 4th generation machines, and we are proud to announce that our upcoming 5th generation ASRs will continue the long-standing relationship.”
A Geospatial World article on the Velodyne/Knightscope news quotes Velodyne Lidar CEO Anand Gopalan saying:
“Our lidar sensors help enable 24/7 security functionality needed in all types of indoor, outdoor and light conditions. We are aligned with Knightscope in our mission of advancing public safety to achieve healthy and thriving communities for all.”
Lidar helps security solutions monitor an entire property and not just the border. The technology can create a full 3D model of the environment to track people and objects more seamlessly and easily.
