New Ouster Lidar Python SDK

For those of you who don’t know us, here at Ouster, we build lidar sensors to serve as the eyes of the autonomous future. To help developers more easily work with lidar data, we’ve spent the last two years building a Python SDK. With a simple pip install, you can get access to a whole library of commands to visualize and work with lidar data. Our latest v 0.3.0 release makes it extremely easy to start streaming and visualizing lidar data, and it now supports more platforms and Python versions. More can be read here, but give it a try. We are always expanding our sample data library so there’s interesting data to play with.

We’re working hard to help more and more people contribute to making the world more autonomous and welcome any feedback you have on what you’d like to see. You can reach us on GitHub: https://github.com/ouster-lidar/ouster_example.

Great :star: to see Ouster support in robotics with the ROS drivers https://github.com/ouster-lidar/ouster_example/tree/master/ouster_ros

Is there support for ROS2?

Hi @ggrigor, let me know if this helps - https://github.com/ros-drivers/ros2_ouster_drivers/blob/foxy-devel/README.md
