The miniVUX-1DL is a sister device to the miniature UAV laser scanner miniVUX-1UAV. The added indicator „DL“ means „downward-looking“ and refers to its special design tailored to meet the needs of corridor mapping tasks (downward-looking, optimized field of view, small size).
Thus, the RIEGL miniVUX-1DL is perfectly suited for tasks such as powerline and pipeline surveillance, or for infrastructure inspection as in highway or railway monitoring.
The specific wedge prism scanner construction produces a field of view of 46°, and the circular scan pattern provides a very high point density and good point distribution. The LiDAR sensor makes use of RIEGL’s unique Waveform-LiDAR technology, allowing echo digitization and online waveform processing. Multiple target resolution is the basis for penetrating even dense foliage.
An easy to remove SD card for data storage and/or the option for streaming the scan data via LAN TCP/IP interface – in combination with the modest power consumption of the scanner – allows straightforward integration into various types of UAVs.
In addition to the stand-alone version of the miniVUX-1DL, RIEGL also offers fully-integrated system solutions.
