Velodine LIDAR, Inc. (Nasdaq: VLDR) today launched its latest innovation in the LIDAR sensor, the Velarre H800. The solid state Velarre H800 is designed for automotive grade performance and is built using Velodyne’s breakthrough proprietary Micro Lidar array architecture (MLA). Combined with long-range perception and wide field of view, this sensor is designed for advanced navigation and collision avoidance in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and autonomous mobility applications. The Velarre H800’s compact, embeddable form factor is designed to fit neatly behind the windshield of a truck, bus, or car, or is mounted native to the vehicle exterior. The Velarre H800 will be available at high-volume production levels with a target price of less than $ 500 for widespread adoption in the consumer and commercial vehicle markets.

“The Velodine launch of the Veladre H800 LIDAR sensor, the first in a family of solid state LIDARs that we will release publicly, is important to automakers for three reasons,” said Anand Gopalan, CEO of Wellden Snedar. “Previously, the Velarre H800 was designed specifically for high-quality automotive applications with feedback from major OEM customers. It utilizes Velodyne’s global network of high-quality manufacturing partnerships that provide the need for high-volume automakers. Second, Velodyne’s proprietary technology and experience, coupled with our manufacturing capability, allows us to offer sensors at a price that makes economic sense for vehicle manufacturers. Third, the world needs to increase safety in consumer vehicles and the Velarre product line provides consumers with safe roadways and cars to build. “
The Velarre H800 can help drivers design ADAS solutions that help reduce traffic accidents and also the deaths of drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians. The Tech Health Organization reports that annual deaths due to traffic accidents have reached 1.35 million globally.
“We want to help build public confidence in automated vehicle systems,” commented Marta Hall, Velodine’s founder and CMO. “We believe the Velarre H800 is the first of many LIDAR sensors that will be used in the system for powerful vehicle protection. Velodyne is offering it as a key sensor for systems designed as building blocks for vehicle safety. Once the public experiences the benefits of reliable automated security systems, they will welcome such products. We can save lives with ADAS. “
The Velarre H800 boasts excellent range, field of view and resolution for autonomy and progression from level 2 to level 5 in ADAS. This extends the entirety of the ADAS features from lane funnel and assisted emergency braking, all routes to the top level. Automatic driving. Compact, low-cost sensors can be combined with Velodyne’s Vela software suite, enabling a full spectrum of security features.
LIDAR’s efficacy in creating robust and feature-rich ADAS has been recognized in the auto industry over the years. Proprietary testing indicated the superiority of the Velarre-based solution where a conventional camera and radar system failed. Please refer to the recently released white paper of Pedestrian about Pedestrian Automatic Emergency Braking (PAEB) here.
With an area of 120 horizontal degrees by 16 vertical degrees, the Velarre H800 allows excellent detection of peripheral, near-field, and overhead objects by addressing corner cases on sloping and winding roads. The Velarre H800 provides perception data in the 200-meter range, supporting safe stopping distances even at highway speeds. Featuring a configurable frame rate, the Velarre H800 provides the high-resolution mapping and rich point cloud density required for object classification tasks.
Reflecting on the insights gained from going public, Gopalan commented, “During meetings with investors for the past several months, I have received many questions about the solid state roadmap of Velodyne. The fact is that Velodyne has offered solid state LIDAR sensors for more than two years, but we have used ‘directional’ sensors to describe Velodyne’s solid state LIDAR technology. With the introduction of the Velarre H800, we saw an opportunity to show how Velodine’s LIDAR technology spans many forms and applications. Velodine wants to improve road safety by making all vehicles smart. So we are working so hard to provide ADAS technology which can now be implemented in the market. You will soon see more of our sensors and software product releases offering the building blocks of vehicle safety to the public. “
The Velarre H800 is the first new sensor for Velodyne since the company went public on September 30, 2020. The next generation of sensors in the company’s solid state LIDAR portfolio has taken off. It complies with Velodine’s expertise in the manufacture, distribution and distribution of LIDAR technology.
