Ouster, a provider of high-resolution digital lidar sensors for industrial automation, robotics, smart infrastructure and automotive, says it has been selected to provide four lidar sensors per vehicle for autonomous rideshare developer May Mobility’s next generation of autonomous shuttles.
In recent years, May Mobility has built prototypes with a wide variety of lidar sensor options before deciding on Ouster’s sensors for both short-range/wide-field-of-view and mid-range lidar placements.
The team says it decided to use Ouster’s sensors due to their high performance, field-tested reliability and scalable pricing for larger deployments like those May Mobility plans to roll out in Arlington, Texas, and Higashi-Hiroshima, Japan, in 2021.
“As we expand our reach and evolve our shuttle service, it is important for May Mobility to work with outstanding partners that deliver technology solutions that help us ensure a safe experience. We added Ouster’s sensors to our sensor suite for their combination of resolution, range and reliability and look forward to working with them on upcoming launches,” commented Edwin Olson, founder and CEO of May Mobility.
