RIEGL has been producing Lidar systems commercially since 1978, focusing on pulsed time-of-flight laser radar technology in multiple wavelengths. RIEGL’s core ‘smart waveform’ technologies provide pure digital Lidar signal processing, unique methodologies for resolving range ambiguities, multiple targets per laser shots, optimum measurement distribution, calibrated amplitudes and reflectance estimates, and the seamless integration and calibration of systems.
The broad RIEGL portfolio comprises laser scanners and laser scanning systems for terrestrial, industrial, mobile, bathymetric, airborne and UAV-based applications.
Innovative software complements the sophisticated hardware, resulting in powerful solutions for nearly all imaginable fields in surveying.
RIEGL stands for continuing ‘innovation in 3D’:
In terrestrial scanning, the VZ-2000i offers ranging up to 2,500m. Like the VZ-400i, this system can execute tasks, e.g. registration and georeferencing in the background parallel to high-speed data acquisition.
In mobile scanning, RIEGL presents the new dual scanner mobile mapping system, the VMX-2HA. The system now provides a high-speed 10GigE link for acquisition of 2 million measurements/sec and 9x12Mpx camera images.
In airborne scanning, the new VQ-780i high-performance airborne laser scanner allows highly efficient data acquisition at low, mid and high altitudes, covering a variety of different airborne laser scanning applications from high density to wide area mapping.
In unmanned scanning, RIEGL has added the miniVUX-1DL, an application-optimised version of the RIEGL miniVUX-1, to its portfolio. Its special downward-looking design perfectly meets the needs of corridor mapping tasks such as power line and pipeline surveillance, infrastructure inspection, and highway or railway monitoring.
