Velodyne Lidar signs multi-year sales agreement with GeoSlam

Press Release 7 May - 16:09 SAST

Information from Velodyne Lidar

Velodyne Lidar announced a multi-year sales agreement with GeoSlam, a 3D geospatial technology solutions company which uses the company’s lidar sensors in its Zeb-Horizon mobile scanner for 3D mapping of indoor and underground environments without the need for GPS.

Velodyne’s Puck Lite sensors enable GeoSlam systems to capture measurements up to 100 meters away. The Zeb-Horizon is used in a variety of solutions, including building information modelling (BIM), construction, real estate, surveying and mining. Virginia Tech researchers, for example, are bringing a World War I battlefield to classrooms and museums with the scanner as part of a virtual reality experience. The scanners are also deployed by Entropy Group to map schools in the United States to provide first responders with detailed floor plans in emergency situations.

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

“Working with Velodyne has opened up new possibilities for collecting geospatial data, allowing companies to capture, process and understand the world around them,” said GeoSlam’s Darren Burford. Velodyne Lidar’s Erich Smidt added, “Their solutions demonstrate how Velodyne sensors can help create digital twins that have great accuracy and detail.”
