Velodyne LiDAR, Inc. said it will introduce and demonstrate its new LiDAR sensor technology at CES 2020 in the Las Vegas.  

Velodyne will present products and presentations from its network of customers and partners that are using LiDAR technology in a range of solutions including automotive, mapping, on-demand mobility, robotics, security, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and more.  These companies include AGC, AutonomouStuff, DeepMap, Emesent, GeoSLAM, Idriverplus, Infinite Computer Solutions, Knightscope, NVIDIA, Paracosm and Tacticaware.

Velodyne announcements will highlight its LiDAR technology to enable high-level Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for safe navigation and collision avoidance, all within compact form factors.

Velodyne is demonstrating how its LiDAR sensors and Vella software can be applied to create ADAS solutions with improved safety, including pedestrian and bicyclist avoidance, lane-keeping assist, automatic braking and more.  Employing LiDAR, along with a few inexpensive cameras for redundancy, is a revolutionary approach to safety, allowing vehicles to detect and avoid objects in a range of environmental conditions and roadway settings, according to Velodyne.  

At CES, Velodyne will present its proposed Five Diamonds rating system to clarify and standardize terminology for ADAS features.  The system aims to encourage transparency in the marketplace and promote the maximum positive effect of ADAS technologies.  Velodyne is working with automotive safety organizations, in collaboration with SAE International, to foster an industry dialogue to refine and advance the system with the goal of improving safety.
