Velodyne Expert Addresses How Lidar Boosts Business Value of Mobile Mapping Applications

SAN JOSE, Calif.- Frank Bertini, UAV and Robotics Business Manager at Velodyne Lidar, Inc. (booth #1420), will deliver a featured presentation on the business cases for 3D lidar technology in mobile mapping applications at AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019, taking place on April 29 to May 2, at McCormick Place in Chicago. Bertini will discuss revenue-generating strategies created by adding lidar to drones, backpacks, and all-terrain vehicles (ATV) to build autonomous solutions.

Bertini’s session, “Emerging Autonomous Applications for 3D Lidar,” will provide a technical overview of industrial applications for lidar onboard unmanned systems. The presentation focuses on emerging use-cases which are creating business opportunities in developing markets, including forestry management, utilities management, and surveying. The session takes place on Wednesday, May 1 from 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in XPO Hall- Solutions Theater.

“Velodyne Lidar helps systems developers by providing rich computer perception data that enables high-performing mapping systems in a lightweight, versatile solution,” said Bertini. “Velodyne sensors make it quick and easy for companies to build highly accurate 3D models of any environment, such as forests, power corridors, and solar energy farms.”

In the presentation, Bertini will examine how drones equipped with Velodyne’s lightweight, powerful lidar can produce high-density point clouds for a forest canopy as well as the terrain underneath. He will also explain how this can be done at ground level with a backpack application. Additionally, the session will include mobile mapping case studies involving a power line inspection and surveying a solar power field.

Attendees to AUVSI XPONENTIAL 2019 can visit the Velodyne booth to learn about Velodyne’s state-of-the-art lidar technology that delivers a high-resolution surround-view image to accurately measure and analyze the environment. The performance, range, and compact form factor of Velodyne sensors enable developers to design versatile systems that can be configured to any mapping need.
