Supercharged ingenuity.

Roboticists are pioneering an automated future across every aspect of our daily lives. Robots are taking on tasks that are too redundant, cumbersome, expensive or dangerous for humans — from mowing lawns to diffusing bombs. Robotic operation requires an advanced sensor suite to map and interact with the physical world. With Ouster’s high-performance lidar, robots will be better equipped to play a role in making the future safer and simpler for everyone.

The core of our OS lineup powers doubled range, 10x photon sensitivity, and 5.2m points per second. 


Improve Safety.

Our sensors are built to improve safety across industries. Keeping workers out of dangerous scenarios and unhealthy environments as well as powering robotics that work on avalanche control, bomb, and landmine diffusion are all examples of how Ouster is at the core of a safer world. 


Reduce cost & complexity.

3D lidar helps reduce avoidable accidents that lead to unnecessary costs while dependable robotics lead to predictable scheduling. Helping workers avoid errors, opening up the possibility of inspection in unreachable locations, and allowing for predictable and consistent goods movement in commerce warehouses have already saved customers millions of dollars. 


Improve efficiency.

Low maintenance sensors and high accuracy means increased efficiency in all industries. Reducing inspection times by 90-95%, extending ski resort operations by weeks per season, and powering autonomous and human free flights for drone applications are all ways that Ouster is improving efficiency and giving back time to our customers.
