Hello everyone, I know that ROS can be used with Ouster LiDAR to project point cloud in rviz. Is it possible to project point cloud without rviz?

RViz is a visualization tool. Check the documentation of the ouster_driver on configuration, how to get it to run and publish a pointcloud message. Then you can just visualize that message in RViz.
You can also check this ouster_example.
