Partners Gear Up For AV Testing

Velodyne LiDAR is partnering with Unmanned Solution (UMS) of South Korea to integrate its advanced LiDAR sensors into UMS’ expansive autonomous technology development program. UMS leverages a range of Velodyne’s LiDAR sensors for broad autonomous technology development in a diverse range of platforms.

 

UMS’ autonomous program consists of varied activities including on-road vehicles, agricultural equipment, robots, and autonomous systems integration, as well as the development of an instructional platform for educational programs serving students studying autonomous and robotics technology. The company has deployed over 100 autonomous vehicles in South Korea thus far with more planned, all employing combinations of Velodyne’s VLP-16, HDL-32, and HDL-64 LiDAR sensors. UMS is working to develop car control and sensor fusion technologies for safety systems and autonomous vehicles that will usher in new levels of road safety.
