Velodyne VLP-16 Puck Hi-Res
The Puck-16 with more resolution!
Puck Hi-Res™: HIGHER RESOLUTION AT GREATER DISTANCES
Expanding on Velodyne LiDAR's groundbreaking VLP-16 Puck, 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.
300,000 Points per Second
360° Horizontal FOV
± 10° Vertical FOV
Low Power Consumption
Connectors: RJ45 / M12
Single VLP16 (Velodyne 16) is being used for map based localization in fusion with IMU/Wheel-Encoder and prior 3D map (build using pose graph SLAM). A step towards low-cost localization.
