The Seabed lidar system, equipped with a Puck sensor, provides complete above water point cloud data and can operate in harsh maritime conditions. The system conducts 3D data capture of intricate measurements of inshore, nearshore and inland waterways from up to 100 meters away. It is designed to be simple to mobilize and easy to use without the need for specialized training or qualifications, delivering rapid results that can save time and money.
The Seabed lidar system can be combined with a bathymetric multi-beam echo-sounder to provide a complete 3D, georeferenced image above and below water. The data can be used to rapidly inspect structural integrity of bridges, dams and piers, and be a resource for preservation and sustainability planning. Regular inspections of bridges and waterways are also important to improve navigation safety, especially in high traffic areas where the depth is shallow.
“We selected Velodyne’s Puck because it produces the high quality, consistent data our customers need,” said Elice Collewijn, General Manager, Seabed, which is based in
“Seabed is helping companies transform their businesses with offshore 3D mapping solutions which can deliver highly accurate, detailed data collection to support safe navigation and protection of marine environments,” said
Velodyne Puck compact, versatile sensors deliver a high-resolution image to measure and analyze a variety of environments. They provide high quality resolution and performance along with a full 360-degree environmental view to deliver real-time 3D data. The Puck has best-in-class power efficiency, which advances the travel range and sustainability of applications.
