Media Coverage Highlights How Velodyne’s Sensors Can Improve Power Line Monitoring
Nov 12, 2020 | By Velodyne Lidar

Electric utilities need to monitor overhead power lines to detect problems that include lines which are sagging, damaged by a storm, or experiencing dangerous extreme motion, or “galloping.”

Multiple media outlets posted stories on how LineVision uses Velodyne high-performance lidar sensors in its V3 overhead power line monitoring system to help electric utilities operate their grids more safely and efficiently.

An Energy Central story, noted the LineVision V3 system, powered by Velodyne’s Puck™ sensor, assists utilities by identifying operational anomalies in power lines, helping to mitigate events that could cause wildfires or damage before they happen.

An Earth Imaging Journal article quoted Jonathan Marmillo, Co-founder and Vice President of Product Management of LineVision, saying:

“Velodyne is an important partner in helping us deliver the electric industry’s only non-contact overhead line monitoring solution. The Puck provides our V3 system with what I believe is best-in-class image resolution and real-time data accuracy that are essential to helping our utility clients maximize the safety and efficiency of their lines.”

Other media that covered the news included Asian Surveying & Mapping, Associated Press and Highways Today.
