Velodyne Lidar, Inc. announced its surround-view lidar solutions for collecting rich perception data in testing and validation are available on the NVIDIA DRIVE autonomous driving platform—allowing full, 360-degree perception in real time, facilitating highly accurate localization and path-planning capabilities.
Velodyne sensors’ characteristics are also available on NVIDIA DRIVE Constellation, an open, scalable simulation platform that enables large-scale, bit-accurate hardware-in-the-loop testing of AVs. The solution’s DRIVE Sim software simulates lidar and other sensors, recreating a self-driving car’s inputs with high fidelity in the virtual world.
Velodyne provides the industry’s broadest portfolio of lidar solutions, which spans the full product range required for advanced driver assistance and autonomy by automotive OEMs, truck OEMs, delivery manufacturers, and Tier 1 suppliers.
Velodyne’s lidar sensors help deliver the intelligence to enable automated driving systems and roadway safety by detecting more objects and presenting vehicles with more in-depth views of their surrounding environments.—Glenn Schuster, senior director of sensor ecosystem development at NVIDIA
