We will present RIEGL RiCOPTER with VUX-SYS, a fully integrated solution for professional UAVbased Laser Scanning for numerous applications.
The lightweight miniature LiDAR sensor RIEGL VUX-1 UAV was first introduced in 2014 by RIEGL
and has ever since been met with much interest and enthusiasm by the surveying community. The
scanning performance of the lidar instrument, in combination with the specific perspectives enabled
by the UAV provides attractive results for otherwise inaccessible areas and an unrivaled depth of
information for complex environments, based on features like multi-target capability and waveform
processing. While due to payload limitations, many UAVs with a MTOM of less than 25kg (a critical
weight threshold in most regulatory frameworks for commercial UAV operation) carry cameras to
generate photographic images to get DSM through photogrammetry, the advantage of the LiDAR
technology is its capability to penetrate vegetation and therefore provide at the same time
information for real DTM.
We explain the system components that complement the VUX-1 in a turnkey system set-up and the
integration into the high-performance electrically powered octocopter RiCOPTER, a UAV that has
been especially designed to serve as a flexible and reliable sensor carrying platform for the VUX-SYS
and an additional optional camera system.
Examples from contexts such as powerline mapping, open pit survey, forest inventory and public
infrastructure monitoring shall highlight the particular advantages of employing UAV based Lidar
(ULS) in these and many other surveying applications. Data quality and efficiency of data acquisition
are analyzed in comparison with other acquisition methods, for example ground based surveying, or
other technologies, as for example photogrammetric surveying.

This talk aims to provide better understanding about the Unmanned Laser Scanning technology and
its applications.
