According to a company statement, the megafactory is already producing Velodyne’s HDL-64 LiDAR sensor, with production ramping up across Velodyne’s entire product portfolio and more than one million LiDAR sensors expected to be built in the facility in 2018.
In addition to the San Jose megafactory, Velodyne LiDAR has also opened a new research and development facility in Alameda, CA. Known as Velodyne Labs, the new location focuses on building advanced LiDAR, ASICs chip technology, and new solutions to complete and compliment the company’s existing LiDAR lineup.
The company is aggressively expanding its sales offices in Northern California, the Midwest, East Coast, Europe, and Asia and actively hiring in all locations to increase its leadership position in the development and production of LiDAR sensors.
