Velodyne Lidar introduces Puck 32MR for mid-range autonomous vehicle applications

Velodyne Lidar, Inc. introduced the Puck 32M sensor to address key markets in the autonomous industry. This product offers a cost-effective perception solution for low-speed autonomous markets including industrial vehicles, robotics, shuttles and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).


The Puck 32MR bolsters Velodyne’s portfolio of patented sensor technology, delivering rich perception data for mid-range applications.

In addition to featuring Velodyne’s patented surround-view perception capability, the Puck 32MR offers a range of 120 meters and a 40-degree vertical field of view to enable navigation in unfamiliar and dynamic settings. Generating a high-resolution point cloud with minimal noise in all light conditions, the Puck 32MR accurately detects crosswalks, curbs, vehicles, pedestrians, bicycles and obstacles for safe and efficient operation in roadway, commercial and industrial use cases. Along with outstanding perception performance, this sensor delivers reliability and durability in a compact form factor.

The Puck 32MR is designed for power-efficiency to extend vehicle operating time within broad temperature and environmental ranges without the need for active cooling. The sensor uses proven 905 nanometer (nm), Class 1 eye-safe technology and is assembled in Velodyne’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. The Puck 32MR is designed for scalability and priced attractively for volume customers.
