The most accurate wearable mapping device on the market

In combination with NavVis IVION, NavVis VLX is the fastest way to get the most reliable spatial data for all stakeholders

What is NavVis VLX?

NavVis VLX is a wearable mobile 3D scanner or mapping system. Such 3D laser scanners capture data while you move through the environment. With state-of-the-art lidar scanning abilities and unparalleled SLAM technology, NavVis VLX is the fastest way to the most reliable spatial data.

NavVis VLX consists of two multi-layer LiDAR sensors and four cameras. It can capture an immersive 360-degree panoramic view of the site and between 1,000 – 4,500 sqm of survey-grade data in a single dataset – 10 times faster than a terrestrial laser scanner.

Here’s what our customers say

Oliver WuttkeCastle Rochsburg case study

"For surveying complex building structures, mobile laser scanning is perfect. Without NavVis VLX, documenting this building would have been much more expensive and tedious, if not completely impossible."

Andy BeardsleyDudley castle case study

"Even though the team snapped the data to every control point they could, they finished the capture of the 44.7 hectare area in only 2 days. Compare that to the 40 they budgeted for traditional survey."

Neil WakemannGLWA project case study

"For a 20 million gallon tank, that’s probably half a million square feet of surface area. Each tank could have taken a team of 6 people up to three weeks. Using NavVis VLX and manual methods, a team of two could be in and out of a tank in only four days"
