Velodyne Alpha Prime
The World’s Most Advanced Sensor
ALPHA PRIME™: The World’s Most Advanced Sensor
This state-of-the-art sensor generates high quality perception in a wide variety of light conditions, with advanced sensor-to-sensor interference mitigation, power efficiency, and thermal performance.
With the Alpha Prime™, Velodyne Lidar delivers the optimal long-range sensor for autonomous mobility. The Alpha Prime™’s world-class combination of range, image clarity and field of view detects roadway objects with reliability and precision. Providing long-range detection of low reflectance objects such as tire fragments, dark vehicles, asphalt, and pedestrians, the Alpha Prime™ enables autonomous operation within a broad range of settings, including urban and highway environments.

Velodyne Puck 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 Puck mounted on a brushless gimbal on a Devourer X8 heavy-lift multi-rotor UAV.
