With our ability to manufacture at scale, we are positioned to capitalize on the first wave of mass commercialization of lidar solutions,” said Dr. Tewksbury.

Trailblazing Lidar Sensors and Software

At the Velodyne booth, exhibitors, customers and industry partners will have the opportunity to hear from Velodyne’s executives and technical experts about how the company’s sensors and software democratize lidar-based safety and autonomy. Among the products Velodyne will showcase are:

  • The Alpha Prime is 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. This state-of-the-art sensor generates a high-quality point cloud in a wide variety of light conditions, with advanced sensor-to-sensor interference mitigation, power efficiency and thermal performance.
  • Velodyne‘s solid-state Velarray H800 is a lidar sensor architected for automotive-grade performance. The sensor is built using Velodyne’s breakthrough proprietary micro-lidar array (MLA) architecture. With combined long-range perception and a broad field of view, the Velarray H800 is designed for safe navigation and collision avoidance in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous mobility applications to achieve advanced driver assistance.
  • Velarray M1600, built with Velodyne’s MLA, provides excellent near-field perception for safe navigation, enabling touch-free movement and last-mile delivery robots to operate autonomously and safely without human intervention. This durable and compact sensor can be deployed in various environments and weather conditions and can be used in almost all weather throughout the year. Velodyne will feature a live Extended Reality (XR) demonstration of Velarray M1600 sensors.
  • Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution (IIS), which creates a real-time 3D map of roads and intersections, provides precise traffic monitoring and analytics that is not possible with other types of sensors such as cameras or radar. IIS reliably collects data in any lighting or weather condition, supporting year-round operation, while also protecting people's privacy. The solution can predict, diagnose and address road safety challenges, helping municipalities and other customers make informed decisions to take corrective action.
  • The Vella Development Kit (VDK) simplifies building autonomous solutions. VDK provides access to Velodyne’s breakthrough Vella perception software paired with its world-class lidar sensors. The software toolkit allows customers to plug in lidar with an off-the-shelf library of functions. VDK advances solution development and accelerates time to market for bringing lidar capabilities to autonomous vehicles, ADAS, mobile delivery devices, industrial robotics, drones and more.

Autonomous Solutions That Are Transforming Industries

The booth will feature products and presentations from customers and partners that are using Velodyne’s lidar technology in a range of transformative solutions including automotive, logistics, mapping, robotics, traffic monitoring, vegetation management and more. The autonomous solution demonstrations are:
