High-resolution lidar sensors for long, mid, and short range applicationsWe transformed lidar from an analog device with thousands of components to an elegant digital device powered by one chip-scale laser array and one CMOS sensor. The result is a full range of high-resolution lidar sensors that deliver superior imaging at a dramatically lower price.
Building the eyes of the autonomous future
The automation revolution is underway, and lidar is one of the key enabling technologies that helps machines see and understand our world. Safety in these automated machines is paramount, which is why Ouster’s digital lidar sensors are designed for the highest resolution and reliability available.
Digital lidar is the future of lidar
Ouster’s patented digital lidar architecture delivers an unmatched combination of performance, reliability, and cost. We transformed lidar from an analog device with thousands of components to an elegant digital device powered by one chip-scale laser array and one CMOS sensor. The result is a full range of high-resolution lidar sensors that deliver superior imaging at a dramatically lower price.
Ouster has raised over $140 million in capital, and is backed by financial and strategic investors with deep relationships in the automotive sector.
