Velodyne will demonstrate its technological leadership and the breadth of its products in lidar sensors and software. Velodyne’s solutions power standalone applications that advance safe, sustainable and accessible mobility, infrastructure and security.
Velodyne is hosting a press event at its IAA Mobility booth on September 6 from 1:15 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. applications. They will also discuss Velodyne’s portfolio of compact solid-state sensors, which can be integrated for sleek and elegant integration into vehicles and robotic applications.
âAt IAA Mobility, we will show how Velodyne’s sensors and software meet a wide range of customer needs to power safe mobility and smart city infrastructure on a global scale,â said Erich Smidt, vice president Europe by Velodyne Lidar. âWe will also have partners at our booth who are at the forefront of bringing the future of stand-alone solutions to market. NI and Seoul Robotics are both recognized leaders in providing high quality solutions to improve people’s lives and increase safety in our communities.
Partners present solutions based on lidar
OR, developer of automated test and measurement systems, will co-exhibit at the Velodyne booth. NI will present simulations optimized for Velodyne’s lidar sensors that can be used to develop and test advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle (AV) capabilities. NI simulation solutions facilitate the integration of Velodyne sensors into vehicle solutions, accelerating time to market and improving vehicle safety. NI will demonstrate how its monoDrive AV simulation software uses Velodyne’s lidar technology to create digital twins and provides validated physics-based sensor models for Velodyne’s lidar sensors.
âOur ADAS and lidar simulation capabilities support the development and deployment of faster systems of ADAS and AV solutions that use Velodyne sensors. NI monoDrive Real-to-Virtual technology provides an end-to-end solution for real-world data collection from cameras, lidars, and GNSS systems to create high-fidelity digital twins that help accelerate ADAS development and AV, âsaid Jeff Phillips, director of marketing for NI’s transportation business unit. âThe combination of Velodyne’s high-performance sensors and our simulation and validation capabilities allow developers to test and validate solutions under a variety of extremely scalable conditions before they hit the road. ”
Seoul Robotics, a Automated with Velodyne partner, will present at the Velodyne booth its AI perception engine for Velodyne lidar sensors, which enables real-time object detection, classification, tracking and prediction for autonomous systems. The AI ââengine can power self-driving cars as well as smart city applications and advanced parameter monitoring systems for facilities. Seoul Robotics’ SENSR â¢ perception software includes an AI engine fully optimized to use Velodyne’s portfolio of lidar sensors, including the Washer â¢, Ultra Puck â¢ and Alpha Prime â¢.
Velodyne Introduces High Performance Sensors and Software
Some of the Velodyne products showcased at IAA Mobility include:
Velarray H800, a solid-state lidar sensor designed for automotive-grade performance and built using Velodyne’s patented and revolutionary Micro-Lidar Array (MLA) architecture. With a combined long-range perception and wide field of view, the sensor is designed for safe navigation and collision avoidance in ADAS and autonomous mobility applications. It can activate advanced driver assistance functions such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Automatic Pedestrian Emergency Braking (PAEB). The compact, integrable form factor of the Velarray H800 is designed to fit perfectly behind the windshield of a truck, bus or car, or to be mounted seamlessly on the exterior of the vehicle .
Velarray M1600, an innovative semiconductor lidar sensor designed to serve mobile robotic applications. The sensor is built using Velodyne’s MLA and offers exceptional near-field perception for safe navigation. The Velarray M1600 enables contactless and last mile mobile delivery robots to operate autonomously and safely, without human intervention. This durable and compact sensor can be deployed in a wide variety of environments and weather conditions, allowing for nearly 365 days of use, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Velabit â¢, Velodyne’s smallest sensor, which brings new levels of versatility and affordability to 3D lidar perception. This compact, mid-range lidar sensor is highly configurable for specialized use cases and can be integrated almost anywhere in vehicles, robots, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and infrastructure. The solid-state Velabit advances Velodyne’s mission to make high-quality 3D lidar sensors readily available to everyone.
Vella â¢, Velodyne’s revolutionary ADAS software based on the directional view Velarray sensor. Far superior to existing approaches that use camera + radar, Vella will revolutionize the advanced driver assistance features currently on the market, including ACC, LKA and PAEB. The Vella Development Kit (VDK) enables businesses to use the advanced capabilities of Vella software in their stand-alone solutions. VDK helps companies use their development resources more efficiently by reducing the time and effort required to integrate 3D lidar sensors into applications.
