Our Lightest Sensor Ever

Velodyne LiDAR’s Puck LITE is a lighter version of the VLP-16 Puck for applications that demand a lower weight to meet their requirements. Aside from the weight, the Puck LITE has identical performance to the VLP-16. The sensor retains Velodyne’s patented 360° surround view to capture real-time 3D LiDAR data that includes distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements.

Unprecedented Field of View and Point Density

The Puck LITE has a range of 100 m with dual return mode to capture greater detail in the 3D image with a low power consumption. A compact footprint and an industry leading weight for a LiDAR sensor with high resolution makes it ideal for UAV/drone and mobile applications in the areas of 3D mapping/imaging, inspection and navigation.

The Puck LITE supports 16 channels and generates approximately 300,000 points/second from a 360° horizontal field of view and a 30° vertical field of view (±15° from the horizon) The Puck LITE has no visible rotating parts and is encapsulated in a package that allows it to operate over a wide temperature range and environmental conditions.
