Customer Driven Mobile Laser Scanner

Velodyne recently announced a new laser scanner – the HDL-32E. According to the firm’s President, Bruce Hall this new unit is the result of customer requests for a smaller, less expensive, scaled down version of their lidar sensor technology . Instead of 64 lasers the new unit has 32, and at $29,900 (US) the price has been cut in half.

This video provides an excellent product overview. Some of the interesting capabilities include a built-in IMU, ability to sync with an external GPS and wave form capture with one of the lasers.

For many mobile applications this is a very cost effective LiDAR sensor.

    This is truly a game changer. This puts a really cost-effective sensor (sub-system) for mobile mapping into the hands of applications innovators who require the fundemental capability (LIDAR), but still want to develop their own custom solutions for their particular market.

  2. The Ibeo Lux laser scanner is also a very cost effective multiple layer, multi echo laser scanner. If you would like any additional information on the Ibeo Lux laser scanner then please feel free to visit
