Velodyne Lidar, announced a multi-year sales agreement with GeoSLAM, a leader in 3D geospatial technology solutions. GeoSLAM uses Velodyne lidar sensors in its ZEB-HORIZON mobile scanner that provides 3D mapping of indoor, underground and difficult to access environments without the need for GPS.

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.

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.
