Lightest LiDAR sensor in the Velodyne range

A compact footprint and an industry leading weight for a 3D LiDAR sensor, the VLP-16 or “Puck” LITE is a lighter weight version of the VLP-16 PUCK. Designed for applications that demand a lower weight to meet their requirements.

The Puck LITE™ has identical performance to the VLP-16, the only difference being a weight of 590g compared to 830g for the VLP-16. No other changes have been made to Puck LITE™. It retains its’ patented 360° surround view to capture real-time 3D LiDAR data that includes distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements.
