Silicon Valley-based lidar technology company Velodyne demonstrates how lidar sensor technology can improve airport operations. This technology contributes to various aspects of airport operations such as crowd management, baggage and outdoor operations on the tarmac.
From an article in Airport Technology by Jasleen Mann.
Lidar sensors provide a complete picture of the airport, in real time, and clearer images at longer ranges than cameras. Velodyne suggests that the quality of these images are a significant improvement compared with traditional cameras.
Jasleen Mann speaks with Laura Wrisley, SVP of Worldwide Sales at Velodyne, about the company’s lidar sensor and software portfolio.
Jasleen Mann: Who are the AwV partners?
