Velodyne Lidar and Anyverse™ join forces in a new partnership
We are very excited to announce we have joined forces with leading lidar company Velodyne Lidar. We plan to work together on feeding Velodyne’s customers with the right synthetic data needed for improvement and further development. Stay tuned to see what we come up with together!
Velodyne Lidar – founded in 1983 and headquartered in San Jose, Calif. – has complete lidar-based safety solutions that incorporate both hardware and software. In 2005, Velodyne’s Founder David Hall invented real-time surround view lidar systems that advanced the development of autonomous vehicles.
Velodyne’s products meet the lidar needs of the most advanced automaker initiatives for autonomy and driver assistance. Its wide array of products are not only used in the AV / ADAS industry but in a variety of other applications and industries, including robotics, security, drone/UAV, mapping, industrial, smart city, and more.
Velodyne has a full portfolio of state-of-the-art lidar sensor products. Their solutions include a range of surround-view sensors and new technologies as well as directional and ultra-wide, close-range sensors to address market needs.
Many experts believe that lidar sensors are essential components for true autonomy, due to the robust point cloud data and a wide variety of use cases in which lidar performs better than other sensor types.
Thanks to our agreement, Velodyne and Anyverse™ will work together to assist the vast ecosystem of autonomous systems developers in enhancing their sensor stack technology. Our technical collaboration will allow Anyverse™ to more accurately model Velodyne’s industry-leading suite of lidar sensors and help both companies to identify new business and opportunities.
Anyverse™ helps you continuously improve your deep learning perception models to reduce your system’s time to market applying new software 2.0 processes. Our synthetic data production platform allows us to provide high-fidelity accurate and balanced datasets. Along with a data-driven iterative process, we can help you reach the required model performance.
With Anyverse™ you can accurately simulate any camera sensor and help you decide which one will perform better with your perception system. No more complex and expensive experiments with real devices, thanks to our state-of-the-art photometric pipeline.
