Recently, Velodyne signed a multi-year sales agreement with Idriverplus to provide Puck™ sensors for the mass production of autonomous vehicles. Idriverplus plans to place thousands of units of its unmanned, electric street cleaning vehicles, called WOXIAOBAI, into commercial operation in China. Each vehicle is equipped with two Puck sensors to help provide security and perception. WOXIAOBAI is already deployed in Germany, Japan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Sweden and the United States.

“Velodyne’s groundbreaking lidar sensors deliver the outstanding quality and broad production scale we need to deliver our autonomous vehicles to worldwide markets,” said Dr. Zhang Dezhao, CEO, Idriverplus. “By becoming part of the Automated with Velodyne ecosystem, Idriverplus will work closely with Velodyne in global promotional and deployment activities.”

Velodyne and Idriverplus have a long-standing relationship of working together on innovation and marketing. At CES 2020, Idriverplus demonstrated its driverless technology at the Velodyne booth. The Idriverplus WOXIAOBAI was on exhibit at Velodyne Lidar’s 2019 World Safety Summit on Autonomous Technology.

“We are committed to working in partnership with Idriverplus to help them advance their highly innovative solutions and achieve business growth,” said Anand Gopalan, CEO, Velodyne Lidar. “Idriverplus autonomous vehicles provide a showcase example of how our lidar sensors enable companies to achieve the performance and scalability needed for mass commercialization.”
