Solid state sensors

Velarray and Velabit are Velodyne’s solid state sensor. The M1600 is a precise near field sensor. Velabit is the next generation of midrange sensors, designed to be small and versatile with a high vertical field of view. Its also designed to be “stackable” so you can mount many to fit the field of view of your liking.

Surround
sensors

The surround sensors all have 360 degree field of view horizontally and from 20-40 degrees vertical field of view. The puck, puck hires and puck lite have a vertical resolution which is the same for the whole field of view, while the remaining Lidars have more lasers focused around the horizontal plane. Other than that there are individual differences in mostly range and how many lasers that are used. With more lasers the Lidar unit produces more measurements per second. All Velodyne Lidars can generate dual return which aids the possibility to achieve penetration of forests and similar objects. The HDL-32E is an older sensor but a true work horse and is a great choice for mapping with its high accuracy.
