Ouster Introduces 3D Industrial Sensor Suite for High-Volume Material Handling Applications

High-resolution industrial sensors for forklift, port equipment, and autonomous mobile robot (AMR) manufacturers automating production fleets

Ouster, Inc. (NYSE: OUST) ("Ouster" or "the Company"), a leading provider of high-resolution digital lidar sensors, announced the release of a 3D industrial lidar sensor suite designed for high-volume material handling applications. The industrial line of high-resolution OS0 and OS1 sensors is configured to meet the unique requirements of forklift, port equipment, and autonomous mobile robot (AMR) manufacturers at price points that enable adoption on high-volume production fleets.


"Material handling OEMs and companies manufacturing their own warehouse robots with unit demand for thousands of sensors require competitive volume pricing and a unique set of sensor capabilities," said Nate Dickerman, Ouster's President of Field Operations. "The 3D capabilities of our industrial sensor suite outperform legacy 2D laser scanners by delivering superior resolution, range, and field of view without increasing system cost or complexity. Customers retrofitting their fleets with our industrial sensors can expect a compelling return on their investment with improved speed, safety, and fleet efficiency."

Built to high standards for ruggedness, robustness, and reliability in all-weather conditions, Ouster's industrial sensors can be used both indoors and outdoors, particularly for applications that require short range detection and an ultra-wide field-of-view for maneuvering in narrow spaces and dynamic environments. The industrial sensor suite can help material handling customers reduce incidents in the warehouse that are a result of 2D lidar limitations, while also expanding the use of automated equipment to more shared workspaces.

Industrial Sensor Suite Highlights

Industry-leading reliability
High-resolution (128 channels)
Detects common warehouse obstacles that 2D lidar sensors miss
Range up to 100 meters
Ultra-wide field of view: up to 90º vertical and up to 360º horizontal

"Ouster is poised to become the default choice for industrial automation with the launch of our industrial sensor suite alongside upcoming chip releases, software, and industrial safety certifications," said Ouster CEO Angus Pacala. "With this product line, we aim to capture a significant share of the $1 billion market for industrial lidar sensors as customers see the immense benefits of converting from analog 2D industrial lidar to our digital 3D lidar suite."
