OUSTER Digital lidar has arrived

OUSTER builds the eyes of the autonomous future with high-resolution lidar sensors

ABOUT OUSTER Lidar

Ouster invented its digital lidar in 2015 and is a leading manufacturer of high-resolution digital lidar sensors used throughout the industrial automation, smart infrastructure, robotics, and automotive industries. Ouster’s sensors are reliable, compact, affordable and highly customizable, laying the foundation for digital lidar ubiquity. Already hundreds of customers have incorporated Ouster lidar sensors in current products or those in development for imminent commercial release.

TECHNOLOGY

Ouster uses semiconductor technology to replace thousands of components in traditional lidar with just two custom designed chips: a single 1 cm2 monolithic laser array chip and another 1 cm2 detector chip. This results in a drop in both manufacturing cost and power consumption, while increasing performance. Because of its standard CMOS architecture, Ouster lidar continues to improve with Moore’s Law. The result is a lidar that is streamlined, compact, and robust, while consuming less power and achieving high performance.
