Velodyne’s Puck LITE™ sensors enable GeoSLAM systems to achieve data capture of intricate measurements from up to 100 meters away, delivering rapid results that can save time and money. ZEB-HORIZON addresses a wide variety of solutions, including building information modeling (BIM), construction, real estate, surveying and mining. In an innovative application, Virginia Tech researchers are bringing a World War I battlefield to classrooms and museums with ZEB-HORIZON mapping as part of a virtual reality experience. GeoSLAM scanners are also being deployed by Entropy Group to map K-12 schools in the United States to provide first responders with detailed floor plans in emergency situations.

“Working with Velodyne has opened up new possibilities for collecting geospatial data, allowing companies to capture, process and understand the world around them,” said Darren Burford, Chief Revenue Officer, GeoSLAM. “We combined Velodyne sensors with our robust SLAM algorithm to create an easy-to-use mobile product that can generate 3D point clouds in real time.”

“GeoSLAM is helping companies transform their businesses with go-anywhere 3D mapping solutions that enable fast data collection in a variety of environments,” said Erich Smidt, Executive Director Europe, Velodyne Lidar. “Their solutions demonstrate how Velodyne sensors can help decision makers create digital twins – digital replicas of physical structures and other areas of interest – that have great accuracy and detail.”

Velodyne Puck LITE sensors deliver a high-resolution image to measure and analyze indoor, outdoor and underground environments. Designed for applications that require a sensor with a low weight and compact size, the Puck LITE delivers outstanding resolution and performance for UAV/drone, handheld and vehicle applications. It provides a full 360-degree environmental view to deliver real-time 3D data.
