RIEGL Proudly Announces a New Class of LiDAR Sensors

RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems has been developing the world’s first survey-grade UAS LiDAR sensor, the VUX-1. As early as February this year, it is already time to show off this innovative sensor: join us at the official launch event ILMF taking place in Denver, USA, February 17 to 19 where the VUX-1 will be presented for the first time!

The innovative sensor was designed to meet the challenges of emerging surveying solutions by UAS, gyrocopters, and ultra-light aircraft, both in measurement performance and in system integration. The VUX-1 is an ultra lightweight LiDAR sensor with less than 4 kilograms (less than 9 pounds) overall weight, that can easily be mounted onto professional UAS/RPAS. It has a 300 degree field of view and produces the extremely high quality LiDAR data users expect from a RIEGL product. Internal storage offers the ability to collect data for several hours at altitudes/ ranges up to more than 1,000 ft. Scanner applications include, but are not limited to: Agricultural and Forestry, Defense, Wide Area Mapping, Flood Zone Mapping, Glacier and Snowfield Mapping, Topography and Mining, and the Academic Markets.

“By introducing the VUX-1, RIEGL is the first to offer a LiDAR sensor that has been especially developed for the UAS and RPAS markets. We expect tremendous growth in these fields and are proud to support these with the breakthrough VUX-1!” said Dr. Johannes Riegl, RIEGL’s Chief Executive Officer.

This VUX-1 will be on display during ILMF 2014 at the RIEGL USA booth, Booth 36. Stop by the booth during the show to see this innovative LiDAR sensor for yourself!

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
Enterprises can achieve rigorous IT security as well as improved DevOps practices and Cloud economics by taking a new, cloud-native approach to application delivery. Because the attack surface for cloud applications is dramatically different than for highly controlled data centers, a disciplined and multi-layered approach that spans all of your processes, staff, vendors and technologies is required. This may sound expensive and time consuming to achieve as you plan how to move selected applicati...
Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today.
