Velodyne LiDAR is showcasing its pristine integration of Velarray LiDAR sensors at Hall 8.0, Booth A13 at the IAA 2019 conference. The sensors on display will enable high-level Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for safe navigation and collision avoidance.

They have noted how the sensors seem invisible within these vehicles on display, and how greater safety can be achieved on the roadway by using our sensors. Automakers can greatly improve the effectiveness and efficiency of driver-assist features by employing Velarray as a key perception component, said Marta Hall, president and chief business development officer, Velodyne LiDAR.

Velarrays LiDAR technology is inherently superior to cameras and radar in performance requirements that are crucial for avoiding forward-facing collisions and dangerous situations, including when drivers are cut off from the side. With the Velarray, LiDAR-enabled ADAS is happening now.

Velarray sensors provide high-definition, three-dimensional data that helps the autonomous cars with a more detailed view of their surroundings to maximize roadway safety. It will allow automakers in addressing edge-cases for current approaches, including curvy roads, potholes, intersections, on/off ramps, residential areas and roadways with unclear lane markings. Velarray also performs at night, enabling the detection of pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists, while cameras today struggle in darkness.

The system boasts best-in-class range and resolution that allow for faster object identification and longer braking distance at highway speeds. It detects areas with a horizontal angle of 120 degrees, a vertical angle of approximately 35 degrees and a range of up to 200 meters.
