RIEGL is an international leading provider of cutting-edge technology in airborne, mobile, terrestrial, industrial and UAV-based laser scanning solutions for applications in surveying.
In order to meet the rail industry’s particular demands, RIEGL has designed several system solutions specifically adapted for classic rail-surveying tasks, e.g., in rail track monitoring, clash detection simulation, and clearance analysis.
The RIEGL VMR Robotic Rail Scanning System, that has been developed for an utmost efficient capturing of dense, accurate, and feature-rich data in Stop&Go mode, is especially suited for high detail survey in construction site operation, verification of rail clearance, and the surveying of railroad tunnels and subways.
The RIEGL VMX-RAIL mobile LiDAR Mapping System has been designed with a triple scanner configuration for integration on a railcar for track mapping and clearance surveying. This rugged design of the measuring head is well suited for long-term operations even in harsh environments. The unique scanner orientation of three high accuracy laser scanners makes sure to cover the area of interest without shadows. Perfect scanner synchronization and high frequency operation result in a regular cross pattern of scan lines in unprecedented density. This feature enhances extraction capability and reliable detection even of minute details.
RIEGL’s UAV LiDAR sensors, which can be integrated into various drones, are perfect for airborne surveying and monitoring of rail lines and rail infrastructure, providing a dense and informative point cloud for further processing in numerous third-party software packages.
Airborne data is also the perfect tool to complement mobile or terrestrial datasets, providing a comprehensive and nearly gapless point cloud of the entire scene.
RIEGL Australia brings all of the technology and developments from the Austrian head office to the Australian and New Zealand markets.
