Velabit-Enhanced Pegasus Mini Autonomous Ground & Air Vehicle Profiled in Media
Jan 22, 2020 | By Velodyne Lidar
Velodyne Velabit™ is an ideal solution for small platforms like the Robotic Research Pegasus Mini™.

Lidar sensors are becoming more compact, allowing them to be embedded almost anywhere within vehicles, robots, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), infrastructure and more.

A good case in point is Robotic Research’s Pegasus Mini, which was unveiled at the CES 2020 show and profiled by Miriam McNabb in Drone Life. Pegasus Mini is a fully autonomous ground and air vehicle that excels in confined spaces and can traverse areas impossible for many other UAVs and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs).

The Drone Life story notes:

“This next generation of the Pegasus drone is football-sized, allowing a range of industries including public services, military and enterprise to bring camera equipment or rescue supplies into a wide variety of environments. It’s flexible, easy to deploy, and carries unique sensors. Also, at CES, Velodyne Lidar introduced their smallest sensor, the Velabit™ – perfect for use with the small form-factor Pegasus Mini.”

Small, lightweight lidar is positioned to be the catalyst for creating endless possibilities for new applications in a variety of industries.
