The RIEGL VUX-120 UAV LiDAR Sensor was awarded with the Wichmann Innovations Award in the hardware category. This award has been awarded now for the ninth time. Despite strong competition, the lightweight and versatile VUX-120 convinced both the jury of experts and the public with its high performance, efficiency, and user friendliness. The scanner can be easily mounted to unmanned platforms (UAVs), as well as to helicopters, gyrocopters, and other small manned aircrafts. The innovative scan pattern (NFB Nadir/ Forward/ Backward – Scanning) allows complex and vertical targets to be acquired. With an extremely fast data acquisition rate the sensor is perfectly suited for high point density low-altitude corridor mapping applications like power line, railway track or pipeline inspections.
