Wide Field of View with Enhanced Point Density and Range

With 32 channels and a range of up to 200 m, the VLP-32C generates approximately 1,200,000 points/second in dual return mode, with a 360° horizontal field of view and a 40° vertical field of view. The ULTRA Puck’s denser channel distribution on the horizon enables higher resolution at longer ranges. Operating it in dual return mode allows the capture of greater detail with 3D
imagery. A compact footprint and low weight make the sensor ideal for automotive applications. It is also encapsulated in a package that allows for operation over a range of environmental
