Overview

The HDL-64E S3 is a high resolution and performance LiDAR sensor product. It captures high definition, real-time 3D information about the surrounding environment. It is ideal for applications such as
autonomous vehicle navigation, 3D mapping and surveying plus industrial automation.

The HDL-64E S3 provides high resolution and field of views to generate data about the surrounding environment. It utilizes 64 LiDAR channels with a vertical field of view of 26.9° and delivers a real-time 360° horizontal field of view with its patented rotating head design. The rotation rate is user-selectable from 5 Hz to 20 Hz to enable the user to determine the density of data points generated by the LiDAR sensor. The HDL-64E S3 generates a point cloud of up to ~2,200,000 points per second with a range
of up to 120 m. The HDL-64E S3 is designed to operate over a wide temperature range and challenging environments to support diverse operating conditions and applications.
