Visualize lidar point clouds with ease.

Pip install the Ouster Sensor SDK and see raw data become point clouds with only one line of code. Our SDK comes with prebuilt commands to speed up lidar development process.

Unified through hardware, diversified through software.

Powered by Ouster’s digital lidar technology, sensors are more reliable, higher resolution, and more cost-effective than other lidar sensors. We offer a flexible platform that can be upgraded with new functionality and applications through software alone, including the ability to detect different objects and incidents, configure custom zones, and gather precise metrics such as count, velocity, and dwell times. It’s now possible to unlock the detection capabilities of multiple traditional sensing technologies with just a single sensor.

Simple integration with an open-source cross-platform SDK.

The Ouster SDK allows developers to build on any platform with Python or C++ and use their favorite libraries to prototype, develop, and maintain applications more efficiently.
