Velodyne focuses on delivering high-quality lidar sensor products and helping deliver the promise of safer mobility. The company once again proved this by introducing new perception solutions to advance the autonomous and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) markets. Velodyne introduced the Puck 32MR™ sensor, a compact sensor with state-of-the-art capabilities. Following that, Velodyne introduced the Alpha Prime™, which provides a world-class combination of field-of-view, range and image quality. The company also launched Velabit™, Velodyne’s smallest sensor which brings new levels of versatility and affordability to 3D lidar perception. Velodyne has a diverse product portfolio with sensors that provide surround view, directional, long- and close-range capabilities.

In 2019, Velodyne scaled production by licensing core lidar technology to Tier 1 supplier Veoneer for a long-term, high-volume manufacturing agreement with a global automaker. Velodyne also announced an agreement with Hyundai Mobis to launch a new ADAS-based lidar that integrates Velodyne lidar technology and Hyundai Mobis cognitive software. The Velodyne VELARRAY™-based system is designed specifically to advance ADAS features in consumer vehicles.

“Winning this prestigious award further demonstrates how Velodyne innovations are a widespread catalyst for the acceleration of autonomous vehicle development and enhancing advanced driver assistance systems,” said Anand Gopalan, Velodyne Lidar CEO. “We take great pride in how our products help our customers. Velodyne Lidar is working to deliver on the promise of safer mobility by advancing our technology to save cost, save lives and reduce injuries.”
