Velodyne VLP-16 Puck
The smallest, newest, and most advanced Velodyne's 3D LiDAR
Puck™: THE SMALLEST VELODYNE LIDAR
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.
300,000 Points per Second
360° Horizontal FOV
± 15° Vertical FOV
Low Power Consumption
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.
|UAV LIDAR MAPPING SYSTEM
You'll see how LiDAR can pick up points underneath vegetation vs Photogrammetry will only map tree canopy.
|UAV AIRBORNE LASER SCANNING
First experiment with the Velodyne VLP-16 LiDAR 'Puck' mounted on a brushless gimbal on a Devourer X8 heavy-lift multi-rotor UAV.
