NovAtel ProPak6 Installation& Operation Manual:
This section provides descriptions on the installation procedure of HDL-64E S3 LiDAR.
A customized mounting structure is required to successfully mount an HDL64E S3 LiDAR on top of a vehicle. This structure must provide rigid support to the LiDAR system while raising the LiDAR to a certain height above the ground. This height avoids the laser beams from the LiDAR being blocked by the front and/or rear of the vehicle. The actual height needed for the LiDAR depends on the design of the vehicle and the mounting point of the LiDAR relative to the vehicle. The vertical tilt angle of the lasers normally ranges from +2~-24.8 degrees relative to the horizon. To fully use the angle range for detection, on a Lincoln MKZ, it is recommended that you mount the LiDAR at a minimum height of 1.8 meters (from ground to the base of the LiDAR).
Each HDL-64E S3 LiDAR includes a cable bundle to connect the LiDAR to the power supply, the computer (Ethernet for data transfer, and serial port for LiDAR configuration) and the GPS timesync source.
Connection to the LiDAR
Connect the power and signal cable to the matching ports on the LiDAR
Connection to Power Source
The two AWG 16 wires are used to power HDL-64E S3 LiDAR. It requires about 3A at 12V. To connect the power source, make full contact with the wires and tighten the screws.
Conection to IPC
The connection to the IPC is through an ethernet cable. Plug the ethernet connector in the cable bundle into an ethernet port on the IPC
Connection to GPS:
The HDL64E S3 LiDAR requires the recommended minimum specific GPS/Transit data (GPRMC) and pulse per second (PPS) signal to synchronize to the GPS time. A customized connection is needed to establish the communication between the GPS receiver and the LiDAR:
If you configured the SPAN-IGM-A1 as specified in Configuring the GPS and IMU, the GPRMC signal is sent from the GPS receiver via the User Port cable from the Main port. The PPS signal is sent through the wire cables labeled as “PPS” and “PPS dgnd” from the Aux port. The dash-line boxes in the figure below show the available connections that come with the HDL64E S3 LiDAR and the SPAN-IGM-A1 GPS receiver. The remaining connections must be made by the user.
b. Propak 6 and IMU-IGM-A1
If you configured the Propak 6 as specified in Configuring the GPS and IMU, the GPRMC signal is sent from the GPS receiver via COM2 port. The PPS signal is sent through the IO port. The dash-line boxes in the figure below are available connections that comes with the HDL-64E S3 LiDAR and the Propak 6 GPS receiver. The remaining connections need to be made by the user.
Connection through serial port for LiDAR configuration
You can configure some of the low-level parameters through serial port. Within the cable bundle provided by Velodyne LiDAR, Inc., there are two pairs of red/black cables as shown in the pinout table below. The thicker pair (AWG 16) is used to power the LiDAR system. The thinner pair is used for serial connection. Connect the black wire (Serial In) to RX, the red wire to the Ground wire of a serial cable. Connect the serial cable with a USB-serial adapter to your selected computer.
By default, the HDL-64E S3 has the network IP address setting as 192.168.0.1. However, when you set up for Apollo, change the network IP address to 192.168.20.13 . You can use the terminal application with Termite3.2 and enter the network setting command. The IP address of the HDL-64E S3 can be configured using the following steps:
Connect one side of the serial cable to your laptop
Connect the other side of the serial cable to HDL-64E S3’s serial wires
Use the following COM port default setting:
Data bits: 8
Stop bits: 1
Use the COM port application:
Download Termite3.2 from the link below and install it on your laptop (Windows):
Use the serial cable connection for COM port between the HDL-64E S3 and the laptop:
Launch Termite 3.2 from laptop
Issue a serial command for setting up the HDL-64E S3’s IP addresses over serial port "#HDLIPA192168020013192168020255"
The unit must be power cycled to adopt the new IP addresses
HDL-64E S3 Manual can be found on this webpage:
In Apollo 2.5, map creation service has been opened to the public. To acquire the data necessary for map creation, one would need to install an additional VLP-16 LiDAR on the vehicle. The purpose of this LiDAR is to collect point cloud information for objects above the FOV of the HDL-64 S3 Lidar, such as traffic lights and signs. It requires a customized rack to mount the VLP-16 Lidar on top of the vehicle. The figure below shows one of the possible configurations.
In this specific configuration, the VLP-16 LiDAR is mounted with an upward tilt of 20±2°. The power cable of the VLP-16 is connected to the DataSpeed power panel. The ethernet connection is connected to the IPC (possibly through an ethernet switch). Similar to HDL-64 S3 LiDAR, the VLP-16 GPRMC and PPS input from the GPS receiver. Ideally, additional hardware should be installed to duplicate the GPRMC and PPS signal from the GPS receiver send to HDL-64 and VLP-16 respectively. However, a simple Y-split cable may also provide adequate signal for both LiDAR's. To distinguish from the HDL-64 S3 LiDAR, please follow the VLP-16 manual and use the webpage interface to configure the IP of VLP-16 to 192.168.20.14, the data port to 2369, and the telemetry port to 8309. The pinout for the signal input from GPS receiver can also be found in the manual if you need customized cable.
VLP-16 Manual can be found on this webpage:
This section provides guidelines for the camera installation procedure.
The Apollo reference design recommends using three cameras with different focal lengths: two with 6 mm lens and one with 25 mm lens. The location of these cameras are very flexible, they can be placed on the side of LiDAR or inside of the front windshield. The mounting of the cameras can be tailored to the actual design of the system.
All the cameras should face forward to the driving direction. The field of view (FOV) should be kept free from obstructions as much as possible.
The camera with the 25 mm focal length should be tilted up by about two degrees. After you make this adjustment, the 25 mm camera should be able to observe the traffic light from 100 m away to the stop line at the intersection.
The lenses of the cameras, out of the package, are not in the optimal position. Set up the correct position by adjusting the focus of the lens to form a sharp image of a target object at a distance. A good target to image is a traffic sign or a street sign within the FOV. After adjusting the focus, use the lock screw to secure the position of the lens.
Use USB 3.0 Cables to connect the cameras (USB 3.0 Micro-B) and the IPC(USB 3.0 type A), and then use screws to secure the connection.
This section provides descriptions of the installation procedure of Continental Radar.
The radar requires a matching mechanical rack to mount on the front bumper. After the installation, it is required that the radar faces towards the driving direction and slightly tilts up by no more than two degrees.
The cable that comes with the radar needs to be routed to the back of the car and connected to the CAN1 channel of the ESD CAN card.
Follow these steps:
Use a voltage converter/regulator to convert the 12 VDC output from the vehicle to desired voltage to power IPC.
As recommended by Neousys, use a 12 VDC to 19 VDC converter with maximal output current of 20 A.
a. Connect the two 19 VDC output wires to IPC's power connector (Green as shown below).
b. Connect the two cables of 12 VDC input to the power panel in the vehicle. If the size of the wire is too thick, the wire should be split to several wires and connect to corresponding ports, respectively.
This step is required. If the input voltage goes below the required limit, it can cause system failure.
Place the onboard computer system, the 6108GC, inside the trunk (recommended).
For example, Apollo 2.5 uses 4x4 self-tapping screws to bolt the 6108GC to the carpeted floor of the trunk.
Mount the IPC so that its front and back sides(where all ports are located) face the right side (passenger) or the left side(driver) of the trunk.
This positioning makes it easier to connect all of the cables.
For more information, see:
Neousys Nuvo-6108GC – Manual:
Controller Area Network (CAN) cable
Ethernet cable from the 4G router to the IPC
GPS Receiver to the IPC
(Optional) Monitor, keyboard, mouse
a. Connect the power cable to the IPC (as shown):
b. Connect the other end of the power cable to the vehicle battery (as shown):
c. Connect the DB9 cable to the IPC to talk to the CAN (as shown):
the Ethernet cable from the 4G router to the IPC
the GPS Receiver to the IPC
(optional) the monitor:
Follow these steps:
Before taking the measurement, turn on the IPC.
When the IMU and the GPS Antenna are in position, the distance from the IMU to the GPS Antenna must be measured. The distance should be measured as: X offset, Y offset, and Z offset. The error of offset must be within one centimeter to achieve high accuracy in positioning and localization.

This section provides recommendations for setting up the network.
The IPC that is running the Apollo software must access the Internet to acquire the Real Time Kinematic (RTK) data for accurate localization. A mobile device also needs to connect to the IPC to run the Apollo software.
It is recommended that you set up your network according to the following diagram:
Follow these steps:
Install and configure a 4G LTE router with Wi-Fi Access Point (AP) capability and Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Connect the IPC to the LTE router using an Ethernet cable.
Configure the LTE router to access the Internet using the LTE cellular network.
Configure the AP capability of the LTE router so that the iPad Pro or another mobile device can connect to the router, and, in turn, connect to the IPC.
It is recommended that you configure a fixed IP instead of using DHCP on the IPC to make it easier to connect to it from a mobile terminal.
Use the components that you were required to provide to perform the following tasks:
Connect a monitor using the DVI or the HDMI cables and connect the keyboard and mouse to perform debugging tasks at the car onsite.
Establish a Wi-Fi connection on the Apple iPad Pro to access the HMI and control the Apollo ADS that is running on the IPC.
In order to, sync the computer time to the NTP server on the internet, you could use the Time Sync script
After you complete the hardware installation in the vehicle, see the Apollo Quick Start for the steps to complete the software installation.
