LidarView

Visualize and Analyze Your Live-Captured 3D Lidar Data in Real-Time

Powerful Data Visualization and Analysis

With LidarView, you can quickly process live point cloud data from one or multiple sensors and turn it into powerful visualizations. Have confidence knowing your software is built on top of ParaView–the world’s leading open source post-processing visualization engine. Its out of the box capabilities include:

  • Visualization of time-stamped LiDAR returns in 3D
  • Spreadsheet inspector for LiDAR attributes (timestamp, azimuth, laser id, etc)
  • Show or hide lasers subsets
  • Show multiple frames of data simultaneously and aggregate them
  • Apply 3D transforms to Lidar pointclouds
  • Input from live sensor stream or recorded .pcap file

It not only provides best-in-class visualization and analysis, but also HPC support for executing AI algorithms for scene classification, object tracking, and 3D reconstruction.

Robust SLAM and AI and Machine Learning Algorithms

LidarView’s easy-to-use SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) lets you accurately reconstruct the surrounding environment and localize the sensor. It supports live streaming, data processing, and visualization of live data from one or multiple sensors simultaneously. It can even integrate features like advanced object detection and tracking with Kitware’s cutting-edge computer vision and machine learning algorithms.

Cost-Effective Open Source Lidar Software Solution

LidarView is available under Kitware’s permissive open source license, so there are no licensing fees and you can benefit from the source code maintenance and transparency. And, because it’s built on an extensible framework, LidarView’s features and functionality are constantly expanding, providing you with longer lifetime value as well as the ability to customize it better suit your workflow needs. If you choose, you can even create a custom branded closed source application.

Highly-Customizable Framework That’s Built For You

With its easy-to-use technology that quickly adapts to and supports your sensors, LidarView is designed to help you increase your workflow productivity. Kitware has worked with Lidar manufacturers like Velodyne and Ouster to create unique solutions made just for their devices. We’ve developed additional functionality and capabilities tailored to specific customer use cases that remain their IP.
