Velodyne to Demo HDL-32E LiDAR Sensor at SPAR 2011

March 21, 2011

Velodyne LiDAR, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high definition LiDAR sensors, will display the latest in sensor technology with its HDL-32E in booth 39 at the 2011 SPAR international conference being held March 21-24 at the Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Houston, Texas.

Visitors to the show can see the HDL-32E in action at the Mobile Scanning and Mapping Demo being held in the circular driveway of the convention center. Mandli Communications will be demonstrating its advanced data collection platform that utilizes the HDL-32E as a core measurement technology for aligning the data streams of several next generation highway infrastructure sensors.

The HDL-32E is a small, lightweight and rugged sensor designed to meet the explosive demand for 3D mapping applications and autonomous navigation. It features 32 lasers across a 40° vertical Field of View (FOV) and generates 800,000 distance points per second. The HDL-32E measures just 5.68 inches high by 3.4 inches wide and weighs 2.4 pounds.

Raymond Mandli, president of Mandli Communications, will also be speaking at a session on mobile surveying on Tuesday, March 22, from 1:30 to 3:00. Discussing Velodyne’s other sensor, the original HDL-64E, the presentation will describe how the Texas Department of Transportation uses LiDAR data and the advancement of LiDAR collection technology. The HDL-64E produces 1.3 million data points per second.

The HDL-32E will also be on display at the Velodyne booth, #842, at Automate 2011 which is also being held March 21-24 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill.
