NavVis VLX is a mobile mapping system designed for laser scanning and AEC professionals that enables high-quality reality capture of complex buildings and construction sites.
Capture 3D measurements with two multi-layer LiDAR sensors in combination with industry-leading SLAM software to deliver survey-grade point cloud quality. Four cameras positioned on top of the device take high resolution images in every direction for complete 360º capture — all without the operator appearing in the field of view.
Monitor your scanning progress in real time with a built-in touchscreen interface, to ensure complete coverage as you move.
A first-of-its-kind wearable device which enables operators to comfortably scan at the speed of walking. The forward-facing design allows for targeted scanning, together with a built-in screen for optimal viewing.
NavVis VLX is fully compatible with standard tools in the field. It can capture control points in a local site coordinate system measured by Total Stations and GNSS rovers, and also supports national and global coordinates for precise geo-registration and alignment of datasets.
The unique hinged design folds up and fits into a protective case, so that a single operator can easily transport and set up.
Point cloud surface reconstruction preserves details while removing noise for more efficient use in 2D drawings and 3D models.
Highly detailed point clouds include color and realistic texturing.
Objects that move through the scan are automatically detected and removed from point clouds during post-processing, resulting in less manual work.
Robust SLAM algorithms can accurately capture the entire building including the facade and surroundings.
With regular software updates to the SLAM algorithm, NavVis VLX 2nd generation is optimized for outdoor environments and will continue to evolve long into the future. It also boasts IP42 for resistance against solid objects larger than 1 mm and vertically dripping water, and a carbon-fiber frame that's super strong and reduces overall weight.
