May Mobility autonomous vehicle outfitted with Ouster lidar sensors

Ouster expands support for autonomous vehicle deployments of its lidar sensors

Ouster and May Mobility are expanding their supply agreements to provide lidar sensors for May Mobility’s autonomous vehicle systems. These expansions include a binding commitment for a combined purchase of over one thousand Ouster OS1 and Alpha PrimeTM VLS-128 sensors through until the end of 2024 to meet demand for new AV deployments starting this year.

“We are rapidly growing our operations and technology and need partners that deliver high-performing, reliable and scalable products to be successful,” said Edwin Olson, CEO of May Mobility. “With Ouster, and now Velodyne under its umbrella, we get a field-tested lidar suite from one supplier, making it even easier to expand and deploy our growing fleet to more communities and businesses.”

Ouster has previously shipped hundreds of sensors to May Mobility for its commercial programmes. May Mobility’s vehicles are fitted with four Ouster OS1 digital lidar sensors for short and mid-range detection and one Alpha Prime sensor for long-range detection, providing surround-view coverage to increase safety and performance.

“We’re thrilled to supply May Mobility’s suite of lidar sensors, enabling 360-degree coverage for their autonomous vehicles. May Mobility recognises that complete awareness and reliable detection is key to the safe deployment of AVs,” said Angus Pacala, CEO and Co-Founder at Ouster. “Our contract expansion is further evidence of our shared values, strong relationship and the growing demand for accessible, safe and green transportation across the USA.”
