About Ouster

High-resolution lidar sensors for long, mid, and short range applications

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.

Building a safer, more sustainable future

We believe lidar is the building block of a new world in which smart infrastructure and autonomous machines can see and understand their surroundings, improving safety and quality of life while driving efficiency, sustainability, and resiliency.

Ouster digital lidar architecture

The future of lidar is digital

Our 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 a fully custom silicon CMOS chip.
We designed our sensors to meet a super set of performance requirements across industries, resulting in a suite of high-resolution digital lidar flexible enough to serve a wide-variety of automotive, industrial, smart infrastructure, and robotics applications.
