THE NEWEST MOST ADVANCED VELODYNE'S SENSOR
Velodyne's new PUCK™ VLP-16 sensor is the smallest, newest and most advanced product in Velodyne's 3D LiDAR product range. Vastly more cost-effective than similarly priced sensors and developed with mass production in mind, it retains the key features of Velodyne's breakthroughs in LiDAR: Real-time, 360°, 3D distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements.
HIGHER RESOLUTION AT GREATER DISTANCES
Expanding on Velodyne LiDAR's groundbreaking PUCK™ VLP-16, a 16-channel, real-time 3D LiDAR sensor that weighs just 830 grams, PUCK Hi-Res™ is used in applications that require greater resolution in the captured 3D image. PUCK Hi-Res™ retains the VLP-16 PUCK's 360° horizontal field-of-view (FoV) and 100-meter range, but delivers a 20° vertical FoV for a tighter channel distribution – 1.33° between channels instead of 2.00° – to deliver greater details in the 3D image at longer ranges. This will enable the host system to not only detect, but also better discern, objects at these greater distances.
THE LIGHTEST SENSOR EVER
Velodyne LiDAR's PUCK LITE™ is a lighter weight version of the VLP-16 PUCK™ for applications that demand a lower weight to meet their requirements. The Puck LITE™ has identical performance to VLP-16 with the only difference in weight of 590 g vs. 830 g for the latter. No other changes have been made to PUCK LITE™ as it retains its patented 360° surround view to capture real-time 3D LiDAR data that includes distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements.
