Ouster is partnering with Chinese robotic company iDriverplus to provide lidar sensors for autonomous cleaning robots.
After China entered into a state of emergency due to COVID-19, the two companies partnered to outfit a fleet of robots with OS1-64 lidar sensors.
The unmanned cleaning and disinfection vehicles were equipped with OS1-64 lidar sensors on the top and front of the robots providing 360° 3D environmental monitoring and more accurate obstacle recognition.
Angus Pacala, CEO of Ouster, said, “Leaders in unmanned robotics, like iDriverplus, are adopting high-resolution Ouster lidar sensors due to significant performance improvements enabled by these sensors. Robots can see and identify objects at greater distances, allowing them to move faster and more safely. We’re very excited for the future of our partnership with iDriverplus.”
