Introducing a New Class of Survey-Grade

  1. 1. Philipp AMON RIEGL Laser Measurement Systems Manager, International Sales GeoSiberia, Novosibirsk April 16th, 2014 Introducing a New Class of Survey-Grade Laser Scanning by use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) RIEGL VUX-1
  2. 2. The challenge • New generation of aircraft opening a variety of new, complex surveying situations • While various types of unmanned aircraft (UAS / RPAS) are ready and about to enter civil airspace, it is time for a survey- grade LiDAR solution
  3. 3. • RIEGL has provided the airborne and terrestrial LiDAR markets for almost 20 years with innovative, state of the art laser scanners • RIEGL provides a complete protfolio of sensors for all airborne surveying missions • RIEGL is familiar with surveyors‘ expectations concerning data quality • Now ready to meet with new UAS demands and introducing the world‘s first laser scanner specifically designed for UAS, the RIEGL VUX-1
  4. 4. A new class in Laser Scanning
  5. 5. A new class in Laser Scanning RIEGL VUX-1 • measurement rate 500,000 (@550kHz PRR & 330° FOV) • operating Altitude >1,000 ft • compact 225x180x125mm • very lightweight: 3.85 kg) • internal 240 Gbyte SSD Memory • eyesafe Laser Class 1RIEGL VQ-480-U • op. altitude up to 2,450 ft AGL • laser PRR up to 550 kHz • eyesafe Laser Class 1 • lightweight: approx. 7.5 kg RIEGL VQ-820-GU • compact Hydro/Topo scanner • measurement rate 520kHz • fast 200 lines/sec scan rate • littoral zone design • full-waveform output
  6. 6. RIEGL VUX®-1 • Very compact (225 x 180 x 125 mm) • Very lightweight (approx. 3.85 kg) • High-accuracy ranging based on echo digitization and online waveform processing • High laser pulse repetition rate up to 550 kHz for fast data acquisition • Operating flight altitude up to more than 1,000 ft • Survey-grade measurement, accuracy/precision 25 mm • Fast scan speed up to 200 scans / sec. • Field of view up to 330° enabling data acquisition in narrow, complex environments • Easily mountable to professional UAS/RPAS • Flexible IMU integration options • Internal data storage capability (240 GB SSD) for several hours of data acquisition NEW
  7. 7. Ranging performance
  8. 8. Range Measurement Performance 57 pts/m² 30 kn PRR = 550kHz Flight Altitiude AGL = 100 m
  9. 9. Field of View FoV, valleys FoV, urban canyons
  10. 10. Multiple Time Around
  11. 11. Multiple Target Capability
  12. 12. Set-up ULS LiDAR system • Easily mountable to professional UAS • Remote control and autonomous operation using RIEGL‘s RiACQUIRE-Embedded
  13. 13. Set-up ULS LiDAR system • RiACQUIRE-Embedded – running on RIEGL V-Line Scanner, e.g. VUX-1 – stores all raw data on lean data recorder, e.g., SSD disk – controls image acquisition and time stamping – prepares monitoring data for data transfer – listens to and executes commands from ground-based RiACQUIRE • RiACQUIRE – acts as master – transfers data via low-bandwidth interface, e.g., radio link – usual interfaces and feedback to operator on the ground RiACQUIRE running on the ground- based operator‘s PC Set-up ULS LiDAR system RIEGL VUX-1 laser scanner running RiACQUIRE-Embedded (including internal data storage) IMU GNSS (optional) camera low-bandwith interface (e.g. radio link)
  14. 14. RiACQUIRE-Embedded IMU GNSS camera lean data storage RiACQUIRE-Embedded – running on RIEGL VUX-1 – stores all raw data on lean DR – controls image acquisition – prepares monitoring trajectory and scanner data for data transfer – listens to and executes commands from ground-based RiACQUIRE RiACQUIRE – acts as master – transfers data via radio-link – usual interfaces and feedback to operator on the ground RiACQUIRE Embedded RiACQUIRE
