Velodyne’s VLP-16 sensor is the smallest, newest and most advanced production Velodyne’s 3D lidar product range. Vastly more cost-effective than similarly priced sensors and developed with mass production in mind, it retains the key features of Velodyne’s breakthroughs in LiDAR: Real-time, 360°, 3D distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements.
The VLP-16 has a range of 100m, and the sensor’s low power consumption (~8W), lightweight (500-gram or 830-gram options available), compact footprint (~Ø103mm x 72mm), and dual return capability make it ideal for UAVs and other mobile applications.
Velodyne’s lidar VLP-16 supports 16 channels, ~300,000 points/sec, a 360° horizontal field of view and a 30° vertical field of view, with /- 15° up and down. The Velodyne VLP-16 does not have visible rotating parts, making it highly resilient in challenging environments (Rated IP67).
