Ouster, Cyngn Team to Deliver Lidar-Powered Autonomy for Industrial Vehicles

Cyngn and Ouster partner to provide autonomy for industrial vehicles

High-resolution lidar provider Ouster said it has signed a strategic customer agreement with Cyngn, which develops autonomous driving systems for industrial and commercial use cases. The agreement will add Ouster’s new REV7 digital lidar sensors to Cyngn’s DriveMod platform, which delivers autonomous solutions for existing and new material handling vehicles.

Ouster said it will showcase the DriveMod platform outfitted with a REV7 sensor on a Columbia Stockchaser cargo vehicle at its booth at CES 2023 this week in Las Vegas. 

“Cyngn’s DriveMod was developed to support faster, more cost-effective deployments of industrial autonomy solutions, thereby solving major scalability and adoption issues faced by companies interested in reaping the benefits of greater levels of automation,” said Lior Tal, CEO of Cyngn. “DriveMod simplifies what can otherwise be a complex installation process, and requires high-performing sensor technology such as Ouster lidar sensors, which maximizes the vehicle’s self-driving capabilities.”

DriveMod is an all-in-one autonomy integration package that enables companies to convert standard industrial vehicles into fully autonomous ones by utilizing advanced lidar sensors, hardware components, and AI software. Cyngn said DriveMod can be installed into new vehicles off the assembly line, or retrofitted into existing vehicles.

“Cyngn’s platform is streamlining the adoption of autonomous technology for industrial fleets by making it simpler to add autonomy, powered by Ouster digital lidar, to existing and new material handling vehicles,” said Nate Dickerman, Ouster’s president of field operations. “We’re excited to support them as they increase the number of autonomous solutions across the supply chain.”
