Velodyne LiDAR (Morgan Hill, CA) has announced the Puck Hi-Res™ sensor. Expanding on the company’s VLP-16 Puck, a 16-channel, real-time 3D lidar sensor, Puck Hi-Res provides 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 offers a 20° vertical field of view for a tighter channel distribution — 1.33° between channels instead of 2.00°. The real-time LiDAR sensor supports autonomous-vehicle, 3D-mapping, and surveillance industries and applications.
