Lidar is now digital

High-resolution, low-cost lidar sensors for autonomous vehicles, robotics, mapping, and security

We ship products, not promises

At Ouster, we make 3D lidar sensors to empower engineers to build a better future. We are focused on what matters: putting real, high-quality products in the hands of customers.
We can't wait to see what you build.

Lidar that makes sense

Digital lidar architecture

Compact laser array

VCSEL array increases laser beam density, reduces the sensor’s size and weight, reduces cost, and never needs intrinsic recalibration.

Custom ASIC detector

We're bringing Moore's Law to lidar by integrating SPAD photodetectors and digital signal processing into a single custom ASIC. Each chip generation improves performance without increasing the sensor's size, weight, or power draw.

Engineered for real-world deployment

3D sensors proven in the world’s most demanding conditions

IP68, IP69K rated

-
Aerospace-grade bayonet connectors and ruggedized housing withstand 2000 psi power washing and protect sensors from dirt, dust, and water ingress.

Robust to shock and vibration

+
Simple architecture, small number of discrete components, and all-silicon design deliver industry-leading reliability able to withstand automotive-grade shock and vibration testing.

Built to last

+
Sensors include a 1-year warranty and are designed for operation in environments as cold as -20º C and as hot as +50º C.

Ouster in action

  • Captures intensity information in 16-bit granularity for richer, more detailed data
  • Includes built-in IMU for SLAM algorithm support
  • Creates a uniformly spaced point cloud and pixel-aligned 2D camera images for more efficient data processing, faster labeling, and streamlined algorithm application
