Riegl, an unmanned, airborne, mobile and terrestrial laser scanning solutions firm, has scooped a top industry accolade for its unmanned laser scanning sensor.
The company was presented with the MAPPS Geospatial Products and Services Excellence Award in the Technology Innovation category at the 2018 MAPPS Winter Conference last week for its Riegl miniVUX-1UAV miniaturised LiDAR sensor, designed for unmanned laser scanning.
The Riegl miniVUX-1UAV is a user-friendly and cost-efficient device, designed to acquire survey-grade measurement data by use of remotely piloted multi-rotor, rotary-wing, or fixed-wing UAVs for a variety of applications.
The system provides high-speed data acquisition using echo signal digitisation and online waveform processing, based on Riegl’s waveform-LiDAR technology.
My-Linh Truong, UAS segment manager at RIEGL USA, commented: “The response of the miniVUX-1UAV LiDAR sensor introduction to the commercial UAV market has been overwhelmingly positive.
“The flexible and compact nature still maintains the high-performance LiDAR excellence that RIEGL is known for in the surveying and mapping industries. The miniVUX system enables our clients to easily expand or enhance their services in the ever growing and evolving geospatial marketplace.”
