Workshop: Developing with the Ouster Python SDK


In this workshop we do a quick tutorial on how to get started working with the new Ouster Python SDK, and demonstrate how to use a few valuable tools. Join us to learn more.

C++ and the ROS have been the traditional tools for interacting with lidar data, but they can be cumbersome for quick prototyping and testing. We have recently launched an Ouster SDK for Python to allow Ouster lidar users the ease of quick development Python is known for, while maintaining the processing speed of C++ which underpins the SDK.

In this workshop, we go into the code and walk through how to install the SDK, how to write some quick statistical analysis scripts, and even how to do some more complicated analysis that leverage Python open source libraries.

What you'll learn:

  • How to install the Ouster SDK
  • How to set up a virtual environment for development
  • How to run basic statistical analysis on a set of Ouster lidar data
  • How open source libraries Python libraries designed for 2D data can supercharge your Ouster lidar development
