Ouster Releases New Ultra-Wide View OS0 Lidar Sensor and Full Lineup of 128-Channel Resolution Lidar Sensors

by | Jan 7, 2020

SAN FRANCISCO & LAS VEGAS- Ouster, Inc., a leading provider of high-resolution lidar sensors for autonomous vehicles, robotics, security, and mapping, introduced two new high-resolution digital lidar sensors, the ultra-wide field of view OS0-128 and the long-range OS2-128. The OS0 marks a new category of ultra-wide field-of-view lidar optimized for autonomous vehicle and robotics applications. The CES Innovation Award Honoree OS2-128 combines industry-leading resolution and 240+ meter range for high-speed driving applications. Both sensors will be on display at CES 2020 and are currently shipping to customers.

The all-new OS0 pairs Ouster's rugged, affordable digital lidar technology with an industry-leading 90-degree field-of-view. Built in partnership with leading OEMs and robotics companies, the OS0 enables a new level of high-resolution depth imaging that seamlessly integrates into robotics platforms and autonomous vehicles. The OS0-128 was designed for the rigors of commercial deployment and has already secured multiple design wins from leading robotaxi and autonomous trucking OEM customers.

High-resolution perception has always been reserved for expensive, long-range applications. That's finally beginning to change, said Angus Pacala, CEO and co-founder of Ouster. With Ouster's full range of 128-channel sensors, we have a complete high-resolution sensor suite for every application, and for short-range applications, the OS0-128 is in a class of its own.

The expansion of Ouster's digital lidar portfolio addresses every lidar use-case across a range of industries, and now includes the option of 128-channel resolution on all OS0, OS1, and OS2 series digital lidar sensors. The updated products also feature a lower minimum range, improved range repeatability, and window blockage detection “ key features for addressing customer edge cases in the push for commercial autonomy.

May Mobility wouldn’t be where we are today as a company delivering autonomous mobility as a service without incorporating ultra-wide view lidar sensors, said Tom Voorheis, Director of Autonomy Engineering at May Mobility. The Ouster OS0 will provide critical information for navigating urban environments full of tight spaces and crowded streets.

The new OS0 series and expanded 128-channel sensors continues Ouster's mission of building the most reliable sensors with the best resolution at pricing to enable scaled commercial deployment. The Ouster OS0-128 and OS2-128 lidar sensors are now available to order and are currently shipping to major customers and partners.

Dependable, high-resolution sensors are critical to bringing safe self-driving technology to market, said Gary Hicok, Senior Vice President of Automotive Hardware and Systems at NVIDIA. The Ouster OS2 is a solid solution that will augment our long-range perception offerings thanks to its resolution and reliability.

The OS0 and OS2 series offer a full range of resolution options, with the OS0 available with 32 or 128 channels, while the OS2 is available in 32, 64, and 128 configurations. The OS0-32 is priced at $6,000 and the OS0-128 at $18,000. The OS2-32 is priced at $16,000, the OS2-64 at $20,000 and the OS2-128 at $24,000.
