Ouster, a San Francisco-based developer of high performance LIDAR technology, announced today at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference (GTC) in San Jose two new products and the adoption of the NVIDIA DRIVE™ AI platform for its R&D efforts. The new products, the OS-2-64 and OS-1-16, extend the company’s performance and pricing leadership in LIDAR, with sensors that lead in virtually every LIDAR use-case. Ouster’s use of NVIDIA DRIVE will streamline AV and ADAS development and integration of LIDAR sensors.
OS-2: Extended range
Ouster is driving performance further with the OS-2 LIDAR sensor. The OS-2-64 delivers 200 meter range with 64 beams at a tight spacing of 15.8 degrees, providing tailored performance for long-range sensing for highway AV and ADAS applications. The OS-2 is roughly 50% larger than the OS-1 form factor – comparable in size to other small form factor LIDAR sensors on the market at roughly 110mm diameter x 85mm height, and a mass of around 600 grams.
Compared to other extended range sensors on the market, the OS-2 doubles the beam count and extends range further, all at a significantly lower price of $24,000 per unit.
