Velodyne Ultra Puck (VLP-32) LiDAR

Providing dynamic performance in a compact form factor, new applications for Ultra Puck surround view laser scanner are being discovered every day.

The high-density, long-range image generated by the Ultra Puck makes it an industry favorite for:

›  ADAS;
›  autonomous Vehicles (AV);
›  trucking;
›  drone/UAV;
›  robotics;
›  mapping;
›  smart City;
›  security;

With a combination of optimal power and high performance, this sensor provides distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements at all scan angles.

LiDAR (Light Identification Detection and Ranging) is a technology that, by processing a signal obtained by reflecting a light laser pulse, receives information about objects at a distance. Typically, a large number of laser pulses are emitted in a short period. This enables to obtain highly detailed and accurate digital models of the scanned space.

Unlike radio waves that effectively reflected only from large enough metal targets, light waves are reflected practically from all surrounding objects. Multiple reflections can be detected from a single emitted pulse.

Today, laser scanning technology is the most effective method of obtaining a digital terrain model from land, air and water. Modern geodesy is unthinkable without the using of LiDARs.
