CES 2020: Velodyne introduce lidar sensors

19 December 2019

At the upcoming CES 2020, Velodyne Lidar Inc. will introduce and demonstrate its lidar sensor technology that enables high-level advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) for navigation and collision avoidance.

The company will demonstrate its sensors and software for creating safety features such as pedestrian and bicyclist avoidance, lane keeping assist, automatic emergency braking and more. These sensors along with cameras can allow vehicles to detect and avoid objects in a range of environmental conditions and roadway settings.

During the show, Velodyne will present its Five Diamonds rating system to clarify and standardize terminology for ADAS features with the goal of encouraging transparency in the marketplace and promoting ADA technologies. The company said it is working with automotive safety organizations, in collaboration with SAE International, to refine and advance the system with the goal of improving driver and pedestrian safety.

“Automakers can greatly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of driver-assist and safety features by employing Velodyne hardware and software in their ADAS solutions,” said Anand Gopalan, CTO of Velodyne Lidar. “CES attendees will be able to learn how Velodyne sensors can be seamlessly integrated within consumer vehicles, and how greater safety can be achieved on the roadway by using our solutions. They will also see how Velodyne continues to raise the bar with innovative technologies for lidar-based driver safety.”
