A new sensor system offers high-resolution digital lidar technology for researchers, roboticists, and commercial applications. The sensor is designed to accelerate the development and deployment of perception systems.

Lidar – Light Detection and Ranging — is a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser to measure ranges (variable distances) to the Earth.

Ouster, specializing in high-resolution lidar sensors for autonomous vehicles, robotics, security, and mapping, is introducing the OS1-32, an affordable 32-channel lidar sensor. 

The series of products includes rugged, compact, high-resolution lidar sensors engineered for real-world commercial deployment. 

With a range of 120 meters, the OS1-32 maintains a small form factor and a low weight. 

“Higher resolution sensors at an affordable price are critical for moving computer vision from simple obstacle avoidance to more advanced perception, and for moving projects from R&D to commercial viability,” says Ouster CEO and co-founder Angus Pacala. “The OS1-32 gives customers what they ask for the most: higher resolution at an affordable price.”
