Ondulus LiDAR

Ondulus LiDAR

Ondulus LiDAR is a commercial-off-the-shelf software capable of simulating a wide range of LiDAR sensors.


Scan. Simulate. Emulate.

Ondulus LiDAR simulates a wide range of LiDAR sensors in order to create high quality point clouds in a virtual environment.

The newest member of the Ondulus family of sensor products, Ondulus LiDAR is a physics-based LiDAR simulator. The software consists of a LiDAR sensor (the simulator) and a LiDAR viewer.


Simulating scanner or direct laser beam (visible or IR), Ondulus LiDAR was designed to generate a high-quality point clouds that closely resemble the point clouds produced by real LiDAR sensors in terms of density of points as well as their position and intensity. LiDAR returns are geo-referenced and use accurate GPS and IMU information.

Ondulus LiDAR also allows users to develop integrations within an existing LiDAR system.


The LiDAR Viewer application allows users to display consumed transmitted data, and the ability to view point clouds in context.

How Can Ondulus LiDAR Benefit You?
  1. Physically-Based: Ondulus LiDAR employs physically-based rendering so that the sensor captures accurate physical information such as materials, “bounced” energy. Ondulus LiDAR’s laser reflection model accurately interacts with materials and face orientations.
  2. Multiple Scan Patterns: Ondulus LiDAR includes classic and complex scan pattern types.
  3. Supports OGC CDB Format: In addition to supporting most industry-standard formats, Ondulus LiDAR supports OGC CDB which allows users to manage a single database with all sensor and 3D views. This enables users to develop rich ground material databases that can cover the whole earth, and offer multi-user and multi-resolution points of view.
  4. Wide Export Capabilities: Developed in Canada, Ondulus LiDAR is a product that can be integrated in any solution, allowing it to be deployed and supported almost anywhere in the world.
