Over the last 15 years, Velodyne has continued to add intelligence to our sensors, enabling a variety of lidar sensing capabilities that allow our customers to detect more objects and offer cars a more detailed view of their surroundings. Now we will take it even further and our new software, which was developed in close collaboration with our lidar hardware experts, will enable a seamlessly integrated ADAS solution powered by our lidars.”

The Lidar Assistant (Vella): Software that Revolutionizes ADAS Performance

Velodyne presented a groundbreaking advanced driver assistance solution that builds upon its directional view Velarray sensor. Vastly superior to existing approaches that utilize camera+radar, this solution will revolutionize advanced driver assistance functionalities currently on the market, such as Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

VelaDome: Close-Range Precision

The VelaDome’s game-changing hemispherical field of view and high-density image present a quantum leap in pedestrian, cyclist, and blind-spot detection. The compact sensor is ideal for a variety of mounting and styling options. Powered by Velodyne’s patented Micro Lidar Array (MLA) technology, the VelaDome is optimized for manufacturability and designed to meet automotive-grade standards.
