The Velodyne VLS-128 sensor is now part of the Renovo reference configuration for highly automated vehicles powered by the Renovo AWare operating system.

The culmination of ten years of LiDAR development and learning from millions of road miles, the VLS-128 is a sensor specifically made for autonomous driving and advanced vehicle safety at highway speeds. It delivers real-time 3D data up to 0.1-degree vertical and horizontal resolution with up to 300-meter range and 360° surround view.

“LiDAR is a critical sensor for highly automated vehicles operating at SAE Levels 4 and 5,” said Chris Heiser, CEO, Renovo. “Velodyne is the leader in LiDAR technology with an unmatched combination of long range, high resolution and wide field of view. Velodyne’s LiDAR sensors are designed to meet automotive-grade production and scalability requirements which is essential to our fleet customers who must ensure highly automated vehicles are economical when deployed. We see bringing together best-in-class technology leaders like Velodyne as the winning approach to achieving automated mobility on a massive scale.”

The Velodyne LiDAR Inc. VLS-128 sensor provides the range, resolution, and accuracy required by the most advanced autonomous vehicle programs in the world.

Renovo AWare is an operating system built specifically for automated mobility. It allows AMaaS fleet operators to select and combine hardware, software and services that optimally meet the needs of their highly automated vehicles. To guide fleet operators, Renovo created a reference automated mobility implementation of what the company believes is an optimal combination of leading technologies in each category. This reference implementation includes the use of Velodyne LiDAR sensors.
