With the RIEGL miniVUX-1LR RIEGL offers a further version of the proven miniVUX-Series of LiDAR sensors. The extremely lightweight and compact design is particularly suited for straightforward integration with UAS/UAV/RPAS.

With its small and sophisticated design and the stable aluminum housing, the RIEGL miniVUX-1LR offers various integration possibilities with platforms even when space or payload capabilities are restricted. Scan data can be stored on the easy-to-remove SD card and/or streamed via LAN-TCP/IP interface.
Its measurement range of up to 500 m / 1640 ft combined with the 360° field of view makes the sensor especially suited for safe and efficient drone-based surveying of open pit mines, waste dumps, inaccessible canyons, and so on.

RIEGL's well proven Waveform-LiDAR technology provides excellent digital LiDAR signal processing, multiple targets per laser shot enabling the penetration of even dense foilage, optimum distribution of measurements, calibrated amplitudes and reflectance estimates and thus highly accurate, extremely informative measurement data.

With the miniVUX-1LR, RIEGL continues on the proven path of offering the LiDAR sensor itself as a stand-alone version for customized system assemblies, but also as a key element of fully-integrated system solutions ready for straightforward integration with diverse platforms.
