Manufacturer of high resolution digital Lidars, Ouster is an American company founded in 2015.Essential in the development of autonomous driving, Ouster 3D Lidars can be used in many fields of application: drones, smart cities, robotics…
Compact, modular and highly resistant, they offer many advantages to roboticists wishing to optimize their navigation system:
- Video camera-like image quality
- A high level of water and dust resistance
- Optimal operation in all weather conditions (snow, rain, fog, etc.) and at temperatures between -40°C and 64°C
- An LX2 system that doubles the computing power and output data
3D Lidars with different ranges
Depending on what you want to do with it, the brand proposes 3 products with different fields of vision:
- OS0: Ultra-wide angle LiDAR (90° field of view and 50 m range)
- OS1 : Medium-range LiDAR (45° field of view and 120 m range)
- OS2 : Long-range LiDAR (22.5° field of view and 240 m range)
3 models and 4 configurations
For each of these Lidars, you can choose between 3 types of vertical resolution: 32, 64 or 128 channels* and 4 possible configurations:
- Uniform: balanced scanning radius below and above the Lidar
- Gradient: allows the field of view to be segmented to suit the specific function required
- Below Horizon: scanning beam oriented exclusively below the horizon line
- Above Horizon: field of view oriented above the horizon line
*The 128-channel version is only available in a uniform configuration
Ouster lidar: what can I use it for?
- Autonomous vehicles: : automated and safe driving for cars, trucks, taxis, buses, drones...
- Smart Cities : detect and classify vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists in all weather and lighting conditions
- Industry : automation in the mining, agriculture, construction and logistics industries
- Robotics : indispensable for autonomous machines, the LiDAR can see and understand the environment
