First one I think to come with LiDAR as standard, that's an interesting development for sure. I see the sun setting on photogrametry with RPAS. But we were talking about that five years ago ;-) Interesting that it is what it is, enough to get the job without too many hours of extra to make it look fancy. I should think most people here could build similar.
RIEGL is excited to announce the release of the RiCOPTER! RIEGL is the first major LiDAR manufacturer to develop its own unmanned aerial system. The RiCOPTER is a high-performance UAV equipped with the RIEGL VUX-1 survey-grade LiDAR sensor to offer a fully integrated turnkey solution.
Stop by the RIEGL booth to see the VUX-1 integrated into several other UAS systems, such as SARAH by Flying-Cam or Aeroscouts UAS, demonstrating the versatility of the instrument! Moreover live demonstrations of RiCOPTER will be performed Tuesday – Thursday in Intergeo’s UAV flight zone.
