Puck LITE™

Velodyne LiDAR’s Puck LITE™ is a lighter weight version of the VLP-16 PUCK for applications that demand a lower weight to meet their requirements. The Puck LITE™ has identical performance to VLP-16 with the only difference in weight of 590 g vs. 830 g for the latter. No other changes have been made to Puck LITE™ as it retains its patented 360° surround view to capture real-time 3D LiDAR data that includes distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements.

Key Features:

  • 590 grams
  • Dual Returns
  • 16 Channels
  • 100m Range
  • 300,000 Points per Second
  • 360° Horizontal FOV
  • ±15° Vertical FOV
  • Low Power Consumption
  • Protective Design
  • Connectors: RJ45 / M12

PUCK VLP-16

Velodyne’s PUCK™ (VLP-16) sensor is smaller than the VLP-32 and VLP-64 and having new and advanced features. 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.

Key Features:

Puck Hi-Res™

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.

Key Features:

  • ± 10° Vertical fov
  •  Dual returns
  •  16 Channels
  •  100 m Range
  •  300,000 Points per second
  •  360° Horizontal Fov
  •  Low power consumption
  •  Protective design
  •  Connectors: RJ45  /  M12

Geo – MMS

Geo-MMS is a fully integrated LiDAR mapping payload for integration with small unmanned vehicles. The Geo-MMS includes an inertial navigation system coupled with a LiDAR sensor. Raw data from the integrated GPS, IMU and LiDAR sensors are recorded on the internal data recording device and can be post-processed using Geodetics’ LiDAR tool software package to directly geo-reference the LiDAR point clouds with LAS format output. Geo-MMS is available with a wide range of sensors.

Key Features:

  • Flexible mounting for different platforms including UAV, UAS, ground vehicles and robots
  • Minimized sensor size and weight to meet payload restrictions (5 pounds minimum payload)
