Velodyne unveiled the VelaDome™, a compact embeddable lidar that provides an ultra-wide 180° x 180° image for near-object avoidance. Velodyne also introduced Vella™, breakthrough software that establishes its directional view Velarray™ lidar sensor as an integral component for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
“With these new products, Velodyne’s robust solution portfolio meets the entire range of lidar needs for autonomy and driver assistance,” said Anand Gopalan, Ph.D., Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at Velodyne Lidar. “David Hall first deployed vehicle software in 2004 as part of the DARPA Challenges. Over the last 15 years, Velodyne has continued to add intelligence to our sensors, enabling a variety of lidar sensing capabilities that allow our customers to detect more objects and offer cars a more detailed view of their surroundings. Now we will take it even further and our new software, which was developed in close collaboration with our lidar hardware experts, will enable a seamlessly integrated ADAS solution powered by our lidars.”
The Lidar Assistant (Vella): Software that Revolutionizes ADAS Performance
Velodyne presented a groundbreaking advanced driver assistance solution that builds upon its directional view Velarray sensor. Vastly superior to existing approaches that utilize camera+radar, this solution will revolutionize advanced driver assistance functionalities currently on the market, such as Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
VelaDome: Close-Range Precision
The VelaDome’s game-changing hemispherical field of view and high-density image present a quantum leap in pedestrian, cyclist, and blind-spot detection. The compact sensor is ideal for a variety of mounting and styling options. Powered by Velodyne’s patented Micro Lidar Array (MLA) technology, the VelaDome is optimized for manufacturability and designed to meet automotive-grade standards. Like all Velodyne sensors, VelaDome has world-class technical support available across North America, Europe, and Asia.
