Velodyne Acoustics Inc. announced today that they will showcase their most recent HDL32 high-definition LiDAR sensor during the upcoming SPAR International in Colorado Springs, April 15-18th. The latest version of firmware operating the HDL32 provides not only high-definition point clouds with >700,000 points per second at up to 20Hz, but now also features calibrated reflectivities that allow for recognizing street signs, lane markers and other objects while driving at highway speeds. The new HDL32 firmware additionally provides an easy-to-use WebServer based GUI allowing for the first time to set and monitor critical parameters during live operation.

“The real-time 3D Lidar is poised to revolutionize car driving and make a vast improvement in passenger safety. At the same time, 3D Lidar technology is revolutionizing map making and the way we picture the world. We are excited to return to SPAR for our 4th year to showcase the newest in Lidar technology,” said Velodyne founder and inventor, David Hall.

In order to celebrate the introduction of these innovative HDL32 features in Velodyne Acoustics style, the company has committed to give away several of its high-end vPulse in-ear headphones during daily raffles at the Velodyne booth (#605).
