Nano Vux 3 is the latest model of the Nano Vux series. This upgraded LiDAR model integrates the Riegl® miniVUX-3 scanner, Applanix® IMU/GNSS, and a 42mp calibrated camera. It weighs only 3.0kg making it suitable for various kinds of multi-drones.

When operating onboard a LidarSwiss geo controller, it automatically collects laser and image data. LidarSwiss' proprietary Geo-LAS generates laser point cloud with RGB value simultaneously. The algorithm it uses to process 3D data for all objects above ground is proven to be highly accurate.

Nano Vux 3 is easy to transport, easy to install, and easy to operate. It is the perfect tool for rapid and accurate 3D data for small areas - whether it's on electronic copters and other flying platforms.
