Velodyne Lidar inks multi-year partnership agreement with Outsight


Velodyne Lidar has inked a multi-year partnership agreement with Outsight, a company providing Smart Cities monitoring.

Outsight uses Velodyne Lidar sensing technology in its 3D Semantic Camera system for the analysis and management of people flow and assets in large crowded environments, Velodyne said in a statement.

The autonomous system merges lidar data capture with RGB color data with an embedded AI processing unit to create a premises-wide, detailed situational understanding of facilities, such as airports, shopping malls and train stations, says Velodyne.

In a Smart City application, 3D Semantic Cameras provide operators of public spaces access to real-time data and analysis without compromising private data protection. The solution is being deployed at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport, said Velodyne in a statement.
