Velodyne Lidar, Inc. today announced Kaarta has included Velodyne’s smart, powerful lidar technology in Kaarta’s new Stencil 2-32 ground surface mapping solution. Equipped with Velodyne lidar, Stencil 2-32 accurately scans ground level surfaces, mapping items such as curbs, manholes, signs, poles, and other features at a fraction of the cost of traditional mobile mapping systems. The Stencil platform helps enable city planning for infrastructure improvements as well as parking and traffic management. The 3D data generated by Stencil 2-32 can be utilized for a range of applications including BIM modeling, geospatial data analytics, and cataloging tools. For example, Allvision uses Stencil 2-32 along with data from an autonomous vehicle developer to conduct curb occupancy analysis in Pittsburgh’s Strip District, an area known for high on-street parking demands. Called Allvision Parkview, the solution allows city planners to monitor parking behavior to improve transportation planning and curb management. “The addition of Stencil 2-32 to Kaarta’s product line further extends the range of mapping applications for mobile lidar scanning,” said Kevin Dowling, Ph.D., CEO, Kaarta. “The low noise, long range, and field of view of Velodyne’s......
