Transform your infrastructure with data

Intelligent transportation systems are only as effective as the underlying data they receive. With today’s rapid pace of mobility innovation, detection systems need to capture, analyze, and adapt to the environment around it.

Ouster lidar combines the high-resolution advantage of cameras with the all-weather reliability of radar. Detect all road users, analyze traffic patterns, monitor the surrounding infrastructure – all with a single sensor.

Backed by a team of traffic and smart city experts and designed with government professionals in mind, Ouster gives you data to drive a safer, more efficient future.

Actionable data at your fingertips

Ouster’s lidar solution combines our digital lidar sensors with software that provides object detection, classification, and tracking information in real-time.

Designed to integrate with traffic cabinets and other ITS devices, this versatile solution provides data for monitoring and analyzing traffic at any time, all the time.

Solution features - English

Vehicle, pedestrian, bicycle detection with a single sensor

Ouster lidar detects, identifies, and tracks all road users with a single sensor. All the data you need without the technical and operational complexity.

24/7 detection

Unlike cameras, Ouster lidar does not rely on external light for detection. Perception performance is reliable and consistent through day and night. Ouster lidar is the most reliable detection solution to ensure the safety of vulnerable road users when it’s needed the most.

All-weather 3D perception and reliability

Ouster lidar is able to consistently detect objects through environmental obscurants, including rain, fog, and dust. And with IP68/69K rating, Ouster lidar maintains industry-leading reliability to reduce downtime and maintenance costs.

Do more with less

Just two Ouster lidar sensors can provide full coverage of a typical intersection and the curbs. That’s a fraction of the units needed compared to loops, cameras, and radar, helping you save money on total costs of ownership and reduce installation budgets.
