“Our ADAS and lidar simulation capabilities support faster system development and deployment of ADAS and AV solutions that use Velodyne’s sensors. The NI monoDrive Real-to-Virtual technology provides an end-to-end solution for collecting real-world data from cameras, lidars and GNSS systems to create high-fidelity digital twins that help to accelerate ADAS and AV development,” said Jeff Phillips, Director of Marketing for NI’s Transportation Business Unit. “The combination of Velodyne’s high-performance sensors and our simulation and validation capabilities allows developers to test and validate solutions in a massively scalable variety of conditions before they reach the road.”

Seoul Robotics, an Automated with Velodyne partner, will demonstrate at the Velodyne booth its AI perception engine for Velodyne’s lidar sensors which provides real-time object detection, classification, tracking and prediction for autonomous systems. The AI engine can power self-driving cars as well as smart city applications and advanced parameter monitoring systems for facilities. Seoul Robotics’ SENSR™ perception software includes an AI engine that is fully optimized to utilize Velodyne’s portfolio of lidar sensors, including the Puck™, Ultra Puck™ and Alpha Prime™.

Velodyne Highlights High Performance Sensors and Software

Among the Velodyne products showcased at IAA Mobility are:

Velarray H800, a solid-state lidar sensor architected for automotive grade performance and built using Velodyne’s breakthrough proprietary micro-lidar array architecture (MLA). With combined long-range perception and a broad field of view, the sensor is designed for safe navigation and collision avoidance in ADAS and autonomous mobility applications. It can enable advanced driver assistance features such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keep Assist (LKA) and Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (PAEB). The Velarray H800’s compact, embeddable form factor is designed to fit neatly behind the windshield of a truck, bus or car, or be mounted seamlessly on the vehicle exterior.

Velarray M1600, an innovative solid-state lidar sensor designed to serve mobile robotic applications. The sensor is built using Velodyne’s MLA and provides outstanding near-field perception for safe navigation. The Velarray M1600 enables touchless mobile and last-mile delivery robots to operate autonomously and safely, without human intervention. This durable and compact sensor can be deployed in a wide variety of environments and weather conditions allowing nearly 365-day, 24/7 usage.

Velabit™, Velodyne’s smallest sensor, which brings new levels of versatility and affordability to 3D lidar perception. This compact, mid-range lidar sensor is highly configurable for specialized use cases and can be embedded almost anywhere within vehicles, robots, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and infrastructure. The solid-state Velabit advances Velodyne’s mission to make high-quality 3D lidar sensors readily accessible to everyone.

Vella™, Velodyne’s breakthrough ADAS software based on the directional view Velarray sensor. Vastly superior to existing approaches that utilize camera+radar, Vella will revolutionize advanced driver assistance functionalities currently on the market, including ACC, LKA and PAEB. The Vella Development Kit (VDK) enables companies to utilize the advanced capabilities of Vella software in their autonomous solutions. VDK helps companies use their development resources more efficiently by reducing the time and effort required to integrate 3D lidar sensors into applications.
