Ouster to supply lidar to Canadian technology developer in energy, oil and gas


Ouster Inc., a provider of a range of high resolution lidar sensors for automation, robotics and automotive industries has announced a long-term supply agreement with Lux Modus, a provider of pioneering technology solutions to the Canadian oil and gas sector.

Lux Modus Ltd. is an advanced 3D mapping company specializing in developing and deploying LiDAR and imagery platforms for mapping corridors, the built environment, and environmentally sensitive areas during and post construction. With the goal of democratizing 3D data capture, Lux Modus is working to make LiDAR and imagery platforms affordable and easy-to-use.

In the oil and gas industry, Lux Modus uses advanced mobile lidar and imagery to survey and map oil and gas pipelines during construction. Using this detailed data, construction managers and operators are able to identify and correct construction issues, saving time and reducing costs, as well as support long-term integrity and quality assurance.

Ouster’s digital lidar sensors combine high performance with cold weather performance and real-world reliability, factors which can help keep Lux Modus’s platform operational.

“Lux Modus is a fantastic partner, and we’re excited to expand our relationship with them,” said Angus Pacala, Co-Founder and CEO of Ouster.

“Industrial automation is a massive opportunity today, and we anticipate it expanding to $9.4 billion by 2030. This agreement underscores the breadth of applications that Ouster’s digital lidar technology can serve with its unique combination of size, weight, power, performance, and affordability.”

“As we began work on version three of our LuxGear platform, we looked for a long-term lidar technology partner to support us as we grow. We quickly realized that Ouster was going to be the ideal technology partner, and the OS1 sensor is a perfect fit for our technology suite. The OS1 has allowed us to rapidly advance our platform and improve reliability to operate in the often-harsh conditions of the Canadian oil and gas industry,” said Joseph Hlady, President of Lux Modus.
