University Research with Ouster Lidar

A large fraction of Ouster’s employees started their careers in research and academia. We recognize the critical role research continues to play in robotics and from the start have supported researchers through steep discounts on our products. Today we’re furthering our support with the first of a series of blog posts highlighting the incredible work of our university partners. Email us if you’d like to be mentioned in a future post!

Lidar Mapping with Ouster 3D Sensors

One of the best uses of lidar technology is for mapping. With lidar, you get a 3D model of everything around you. All it takes to make a 3D map of the world is to line up lidar scans taken at different places. The process of lining them up, however, is not so easy. This is especially true if the lidar is mounted on a moving platform, such as a car.
