Velodyne Puck LITE
The world's lightest 16 channel lidar.
Puck LITE™: the Lightest Sensor Ever
Velodyne LiDAR's Puck LITE™ is the lightest version of the PUCK for all those applications that require a reduced weight. The Puck LITE ™ has the same performance as the Puck having the only difference in weight: 590 g vs. 830 g. No other changes have been made on the Puck LITE ™ as it retains a patented 360 ° view to capture 3D data of the surrounding environment, including distance measurement and calibrated reflectivity.
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.
