Velodyne Lidar recently announced Kaarta has included its lidar technology in Kaarta’s new Stencil 2-32 ground surface mapping solution.
Kaarta is the innovator of real-time mobile 3D reality capture, mapping complex environment. It leverages advanced robotics technology that combines input from multiple sensors – lidar, visual odometry, and inertial measurement unit (IMU) – and processes that data in real time. For some applications, the data can be enhanced with Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) positioning and wheel odometry sensors.
Stencil 2-32 is the newest member of Kaarta’s Stencil product line which also includes Stencil 2-16, a versatile low-cost mobile mapping platform that uses the Velodyne Puck™ sensor. Stencil 2-32 incorporates the Velodyne HDL-32E lidar sensor, which provides a range of 100 meters and a data rate of 720,000 points per second.
The Stencil platform helps enable city planning for infrastructure improvements as well as parking and traffic management. The 3D data generated can be utilized for a range of applications including BIM modeling, geospatial data analytics, and cataloging tools.
