Velodyne Lidar's HDL-32E is designed for applications that require a smaller and lighter product for autonomous vehicle and mobile mapping applications. Measuring 5.9 in (149 mm) high by 3.4 in (86 mm) wide, it has a mass of less than 3 lb (1.4 kg) and is designed to meet stringent automotive and military environmental specifications. It features up to 32 lasers aligned over a 40º vertical field of view (from +10 to -30º) and generates 800,000 distance points per second. The HDL-32E rotates 360º and provides measurement and intensity information over a range of 5 cm (2 in) to 100 m (328 ft) with a typical accuracy of better than ±2 cm (±0.8 in). According to the company, the result is a rich, high-definition 3-D point cloud that provides autonomous vehicles and mobile mapping applications orders of much more useful environmental data than conventional LiDAR sensors.
