Velodyne, Qualcomm team up to Deploy Lidar

Velodyne Lidar has joined the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program to promote using lidar technology in smart cities to improve public services.

Velodyne’s lidar sensors will be used to help improve pedestrian safety, monitor vehicle traffic, enhance parking space management and speed measurement, as well as augmenting V2X communications, asset management, security and more. The sensors can collect highly accurate, detailed 3D information about people, vehicles, bicyclists, public spaces and more, while preserving anonymity.

“We are pleased to welcome Velodyne Lidar to the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program to implement cutting-edge lidar solutions for a transparent understanding of the smart environment,” says Ashok Tipirneni, director, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and head of platform product management for smart cities. “Velodyne’s lidar sensors and comprehensive 3D data can help equip our Smart Campus and smart city ecosystem members with enhanced safety measures and streamlined operations.”
