Velodyne High-Def LIDAR

Eye-catching techno-bling on the roof of the autonomous VW Junior 2.

 

$75K, with 64 laser beams, spinning like a whirling dervish, capturing a 3D map of the world and its inhabitants.

 

This was a lucky catch, as it is spinning around 10 times/second, collecting 1.3 million 3D datapoints/second.

 

Here is a Radiohead music video made with it.

 

And technical details.
