Velodyne Lidar introduced our next generation Velabit™ sensor, which addresses the cost, safety, and design challenges of autonomous solutions while delivering state-of-the-art performance, reported Automotive World.
A post in Yahoo! Finance stated, “the Velabit delivers on what Velodyne customers asked for – an ultra-wide field of view (FoV) and higher resolution.”
Eric Walz in FutureCar quoted Velodyne CEO Anand Gopalan saying:
“With our next-generation Velabit, Velodyne continues to innovate with a sensor that has small size for sleek, stylish integration while delivering high-quality performance. Our dedicated engineering team worked to bring our customers’ needs to life in under a year, highlighting our commitment to meeting market demands.”
Peter Brown writing in Electronics 360 noted, “Velabit is a solid-state sensor that achieves a maximum horizontal FoV of 90° and a maximum vertical FoV of 70°.” The article cited, “this is three times more points per second than previous generations.”
