Ouster has managed to successfully commercialize the first multi-beam flash LiDAR that marries long-range and high-resolution sensing. At just 425g, the OS1 is the lightest high-resolution 3D sensor on the market today. Thanks to its unique approach that sends precision beams only where detectors are looking, Ouster achieves major efficiency gains compared to conventional flash LiDAR products.
The OS1 is the first sensor of its kind, utilising ambient light suppression and integrated custom VCSEL and SPAD arrays to give a sharper 3D picture for a lower bill of materials than any other company on the market. The OS1-128 has a 45° vertical field of view – the widest of any commercial LiDAR sensor – perfect for minimising blind spots in safety-critical applications like autonomous vehicles.
In spite of these advanced features, the OS1-128 remains six times cheaper than competing high-performance LiDAR sensors.
