Credent Technology Sells Velodyne HDL 64E to Singapore's Major Research Lab Print E-mail
Written by Credent Technology   
Friday, 29 October 2010

October 2010, Singapore - A major research laboratory in Singapore has placed an order for a Velodyne HDL 64E. The HDL 64 E is the same rotating laser scanner senor that was recently featured by Google in its driverless car and headlined by major news agencies, sending ripples throughout the internet:(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zNEXuFgqhB8&feature=player_embedded

Several HDL 64E units have also been acquired by various other local organizations, with installations on "driverless" terrestrial, as well as marine vehicles.

The HDL 64E produces up to 15 frames per second, of a 360 degree "scene" - made up of densely placed laser measurements - at up to 1.3 million measured points per second. This huge amount of information is enough to allow artificial intelligence software to make "sense" about objects detected up to 150 metres all the way around whatever it is mounted on.

"Credent is pleased to be partners with Velodyne Lidar Inc., in supporting the sales of Velodyne's HDL series of sensors.   We are already witnessing the Velodyne Lidar sensors assuming smaller form factors—such as the newly launched HDL32—and becoming less expensive. With all its associated benefits, we certainly hope the dream of "driverless" or computer-assisted driving can become a reality." said Joseph Ow Yong, Regional Sales Manager,Credent Technology Asia.
