High-res, real-time lidar for the autonomous applications

September 3rd, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Velodyne Lidar introduced the Puck 32MR sensor to address key markets in the autonomous industry. It offers a cost-effective solution for low speed autonomous markets including industrial vehicles, robotics, shuttles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The Puck 32MR delivers rich data for mid-range applications. The sensor has a 120 m range and a 40° vertical field of view to enable navigation in unfamiliar and dynamic settings. Generating a high-resolution point cloud with minimal noise in all light conditions, it accurately detects crosswalks, curbs, vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and obstacles for safe and efficient operation in roadway, commercial and industrial use cases. The sensor offers reliability and durability in a compact form factor. It is designed for power efficiency to extend vehicle operating time within broad temperature and environmental ranges without the need for active cooling. The sensor uses proven 905 nanometer (nm), Class 1 eye-safe technology and is assembled in Velodyne’s manufacturing facility. The Puck 32MR is also designed for scalability and priced for volume customers.
