Build and connect the world with better lidar solutions

The industrial market is the backbone of our global supply chain. It defines the way we harvest food, mine resources, build buildings, and transport goods. The current labor shortage has caused delays and challenges across the supply chain.

Automating industrial equipment is essential to the future of that supply chain. With Ouster’s high-performance lidar, you can automate critical tasks using technology that’s as rugged as it is scalable and adaptable.

3D Lidar is Driving the Future of Warehouse Automation

Robots are the future of the manufacturing and material handling industries. With pressure from increased e-commerce demand, supply-chain reshoring, and labor shortages, demand for automation in the material handling industry is booming. In response to all of these pressures, warehouse operators are stretching to find ways to increase speed and efficiency, while working within a labor-constrained environment. The answer to warehouse throughput problems is robotic automation.
