The RIEGL miniVUX-1DL is a sister device to the miniature UAV laser scanner RIEGL 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 storage 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.
