Velodyne LiDAR and BoE Systems Partner for Integrated UAV-Borne LiDAR in Geospatial Data Collection

BoE Systems LiDAR platforms leverage lightweight Velodyne 3D LiDAR sensors for safe and accurate inspections of land, work sites, and equipment

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Velodyne LiDAR Inc., the world leader in 3D vision systems for autonomous vehicles, today announced that it has partnered with BoE Systems to integrate its VLP-16 Puck and Puck LITE 3D LiDAR sensors into BoE Systems UAV fleet for geospatial data collection and analysis.


With this integration, BoE Systems provides full 360° imaging of geography and equipment for a multitude of industries with a critical need for quick, safe, and accurate aerial inspections, including transportation, utilities, telecommunications/infrastructure, construction, aggregate, forestry, and agriculture. BoE Systems acquires imaging data, processes it, and works with customers for tailored analysis and inspection reports, allowing them to address immediate and future needs and compliance issues. In addition, BoE Systems proprietary hardware and software integrations provide digital maps with a level of detail that allows for the development of highly accurate flood models, drainage analysis, Building Information Modeling (BIM), contour mapping, and more.

"UAV mapping is a nascent industry that has quickly evolved with the adoption of LiDAR sensor technology," said Mike Jellen, President and Chief Commercial Officer, Velodyne LiDAR. "With BoE Systems integration of Velodynes advanced VLP-16 Puck and Puck LITE sensors, the result is an incredibly valuable service that quickly and accurately maps geography and equipment to save customers critical man-hours, cost, and effort."

"BoE Systems hardware and software integrations leverage cutting edge technology like Velodynes VLP-16 LiDAR sensors to produce highly accurate 3-dimensional environmental models for industry professionals," said Jason Littrell, President, BoE Systems. "Those professionals appreciate that our systems can do the job quickly, safely, accurately, and without breaking the bank."

About Velodyne LiDAR

Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Silicon Valley, Velodyne is a technology company known worldwide for its real-time 3D LiDAR sensors. The company evolved after founder/inventor David Hall developed the HDL-64 Solid-State Hybrid LiDAR sensor in 2005. Since then, Velodyne LiDAR Inc. emerged as the unmatched market leader of real-time 3D vision systems used in a variety of commercial applications including autonomous vehicles, vehicle safety systems, mobile mapping, aerial mapping, and security. Its products range from the high-performance, surround view Ultra-Puck™ VLP-32, classic HDL-32/64 and cost-effective VLP-16, to the upcoming, hidden Velarray™. Velodynes rich suite of perception software and algorithms are the key enablers of its perception systems. Velodyne supports customers from offices in San Jose, Detroit, Frankfurt, and Beijing.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
