Velodyne will present its latest successes in the world of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) equipped with real-time, 3D LiDAR sensors during the Small Unmanned Systems Business Exposition (sUSB Expo) on Friday July 26, 2013.

During the two day event, taking place at the Golden Gate Club at the Presidio in San Francisco, Velodyne’s Wolfgang Juchmann will be showcasing the advantages of its compact and lightweight HDL-32E LiDAR sensors for use on UAV’s.

During a live demonstration of the technology, the audience can experience hands-on 3D data capturing at the beautiful setting of the Golden Gate Bridge. Juchmann’s presentation will focus on recent advancements of combining the mobility of UAV’s cost-effective aerial transportation platforms with established mapping technologies like Time-of-Flight 3D LiDAR.

A recent proof of concept by Phoenix Aerial Systems, flying Velodyne’s HDL-32E on their Phoenix AL-2, combines the latest UAV, LiDAR and GNSS technology into a cost effective, accurate and compact aerial mapping solution. Data from a scan of the San Diego Chargers Stadium using Phoenix’s Aerials unmanned LiDAR platform will be proof of the upcoming revolution of UAV’s for aerial mapping.
