RIEGL miniVUX 1UAV Lidar Sensor

The RIEGL miniVUX 1UAV is an extremely lightweight airborne laser scanner, it's a user-friendly and cost-efficient device to acquire survey-grade measurement data by use of remotely piloted helicopters and unmanned aircrafts for a variety of applications.



Used RIEGL miniVUX 1UAV Laser scanner this miniVUX-1UAV LiDAR Sensor is equipped with APX-20 UAV1 IMU/GNSS and fully integrated with the DJI M600 Platform. This  set up is in MINT condition and ready to go to work. Manufacture 2019, it comes with RIEGL software packages (Update of RiSCAN PRO, RiMINING, and RiSOLVE version 2.2) for calibration data acquisition.

The RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV is an extremely lightweight airborne laser scanner, designed specifically for integration with UAS/UAV/RPAS. The small and sophisticated design of the stable aluminum housing offers various integration possibilities with platforms that offer restricted space or payload capabilities. The 360° field of view allows complete acquisition of the environment. 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, enable straight-forward integration with most UAS/UAV/RPAS types.

What's Includes:

RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV with APX-20 UAV (IMU82/IMU90):

  • Higher-grade IMU/GNSS unit partly integrated (IMU82) respectively fully integrated (IMU90) with LiDAR engine
  • Total weight approx. 2.5 kg / 2.3 kg
  • Interfaces for up to 2 cameras
  • Suited for integration into all types of UAVs

The RIEGL miniVUX-1UAV makes use of RIEGL’s unique Waveform-LiDAR technology, allowing echo digitization and online waveform processing. Multi-target resolution is the basis for penetrating even dense foliage. As a further special feature, the wavelength is optimized for the measurement of snowy and icy terrain. In addition to the stand-alone version of the miniVUX-1UAV, RIEGL also offers fully-integrated system solutions.
