ATTENTION: This is not the data from the scanner of the UBER car. It is a simple approximation of a car approaching at 25 meters per second to a pedestrian with a bicycle.
Scanned with a virtual Velodyne HDL-64E. The output is the "raw" noisy scan without further calibration. Reflectivity has not been considered, but at a closer distances this should not affect the accuracy of this representation.
The scanner is mounted at a height of 2 meters above ground. This is a rough estimate of the mounting position where UBER has mounted the scanner.
