Ouster releases two high-resolution digital LiDAR sensors
Ouster has introduced two new high-resolution digital LiDAR sensors, the ultra-wide field of view OS0-128 and the long-range OS2-128. The company says that 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.
According to the company, the new OS0 pairs Ouster’s rugged, affordable digital LiDAR technology with an industry-leading 90° field-of-view. Built in partnership with leading OEMs and robotics companies, the OS0 reportedly enables a new level of high-resolution depth imaging that 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 company says that 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 company also says that the updated products feature a lower minimum range, improved range repeatability, and window blockage detection, which are key features for addressing customer edge cases in the push for commercial autonomy.
The OS0 and OS2 series offer a full range of resolution options, with the OS0 available with 32 or 128 channels, while the OS2 available in 32, 64, and 128 configurations. The OS0-32 is priced at $6000 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.
