Puck

by Velodyne

Overview

Velodyne's new PUCK (VLP-16) sensor is the smallest, newest, and most advanced product in Velodyne's 3D LiDAR product range. Vastly more cost-effective than similarly priced sensors, and developed with mass production in mind, it retains the key features of Velodyne's breakthroughs in LiDAR: Real-time, 360°, 3D distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements.

    Real-Time 3D LiDAR

    The VLP-16 has a range of 100 m, and the sensor's low power consumption (~8 W), light weight (830 g), compact footprint (~Ø103 mm x 72 mm), and dual return capability make it ideal not only for autonomous vehicles but also robotics and mobile terrestrial 3D mapping applications.

    Velodyne’s LiDAR Puck supports 16 channels, ~300,000 points/second, 360° horizontal field of view and a 30° vertical field of view, with ±15° up and down. The Velodyne LiDAR Puck does not have visible rotating parts, making it highly resilient in challenging environments (Rated IP67) while operating over a wide temperature range (-10°C to +60°C).
