The OS0 lidar sensor
With an ultra-wide >90° vertical field of view and 128 lines of resolution, the OS0 is in a class of its own. Available today, this sensor delivers extremely high resolution to solve near-range sensing for robotics and autonomous vehicles. For applications with fewer perception or object classification needs, Ouster also makes an OS0 with 32 channels. This sensor enables indoor or outdoor robots to avoid obstacles at relatively high speeds, and can replace a series of smaller sensors with a single wide field of view lidar sensor.
The OS2-128 long-range lidar sensor
The next step forward in high-speed autonomy, the OS2-128 has a range of up to 240 meters and the highest resolution of any sensor available today, at a fraction of the cost. The OS2-128 occupies the extreme end of the performance spectrum, on par with the highest resolution sensors available and at a fraction of the price. With vertical angular resolution at a tight 0.18° uniformly across a 22.5° vertical field of view, the OS2-128 enables long-range, high speed perception for autonomous vehicles and high-altitude survey drones.
The OS2-128 produces incredible imagery using its proprietary ASIC and SPAD photon detectors. The imagery you see below is not a camera – it’s a lidar sensor measuring photons returned from laser pulses. This unique technology has no peer in the lidar industry, and unlocks a range of 2D/3D transformation techniques to improve object classification.
32 channel version of the OS0 and OS2
Using Ouster’s patented digital lidar design, we are able to offer 32 channel versions of the OS0 and OS2 at a reduced cost for projects with tight budgets that still need as much resolution as they can get.
New beam configurations
On 32 and 64 channel sensors, Ouster now offers 4 different beam pattern options for your unique needs.Ouster’s 128 beam lidar sensors employ an evenly spaced beam pattern for consistent angular resolution throughout the field of view. Even beam spacing is also the standard configuration on all 16, 32, and 64 beam sensors; however, with fewer beams, it can be helpful to cluster beams to achieve higher angular resolution in portions of the field of view.
