“At RME Geomatics, we recognize RIEGL as a world leader in LiDAR technology and innovation, especially in the unmanned industry. We chose the VUX-1, based on a combination of range and accuracy abilities for aerial surveys. We evaluated the market need through the pull from our existing customers, as well as the capabilities of competing sensor systems. RME’s capabilities in systems integration and design, coupled with RIEGL‘s LiDAR technology, will produce the most capable and cost-effective LiDAR surveying system available. ” said Stephen Davies, Head of Business Development of RME Geomatics.
The VUX-1 is a very lightweight and compact LiDAR scanner, designed to be mounted in any orientation and even under limited weight and space conditions. The VUX-1 was developed as an innovative, new class of LiDAR sensor to meet the challenges of emerging surveying solutions by UAS, UAV, RPAS, gyrocopters, and ultra-light aircraft, both in measurement performance and in system integration. In the first year after the official product introduction at ILMF 2014, over 30 RIEGL VUX-1 LiDAR sensors have been shipped and successfully employed by customers around the world!
