Velodyne LiDAR Inc., a provider of 3D vision systems for autonomous vehicles, is integrating its VLP-16 Puck and Puck LITE 3D LiDAR sensors into BoE Systems’ unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) fleet for geospatial data collection and analysis.
Thanks to the integration, Kansas City, Mo.-based BoE Systems says it can provide 360-degree drone imaging for industries including transportation, utilities, telecommunications, 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.
“UAV mapping is a nascent industry that has quickly evolved with the adoption of LiDAR sensor technology,” comments Mike Jellen, president and chief commercial officer of Velodyne LiDAR. “With BoE Systems’ integration of Velodyne’s 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 Velodyne’s VLP-16 LiDAR sensors to produce highly accurate three-dimensional environmental models for industry professionals,” adds Jason Littrell, president of BoE Systems.
