Each NavVis VLX system uses two Puck LITE™ sensors to capture point cloud data needed to create building documentation including floorplans, 3D models and digital twins. NavVis VLX combines Velodyne image data with NavVis simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) technology to deliver survey-grade point clouds with a mobile device. Its compact, versatile design enables the system to map small, fragmented and narrow spaces as well as environments with many obstacles and uneven terrain.

“Velodyne sensors provide real-time 3D data to our mobile mapping systems. This valuable input has played an important role in developing the industry-leading SLAM algorithms that power our flagship mobile mapping system, NavVis M6,” said Georg Schroth, NavVis CTO. “Now we are launching NavVis VLX, a complementary device that features the same ground-breaking SLAM technology in a compact, versatile design. We are very happy to have Velodyne be part of our efforts to provide laser scanning professionals with fast, efficient tools for scanning buildings that are capable of delivering survey-grade results.”

“NavVis mobile mapping systems capture the data needed for as-built documentation, such as 3D models and floorplans as well as realistic digital factories for enterprise manufacturing facilities. Stakeholders can inspect, document and share information about buildings and factories to track milestones, plan relocations and improve both customer and employee experience,” said Erich Smidt, Executive Director Europe, Velodyne Lidar. “The NavVis VLX system strongly demonstrates how the performance, range and compact form factor of Velodyne sensors enable companies to build innovative systems. The solution addresses specialized mobile mapping needs of AEC companies, surveyors and laser scanning professionals.”

Velodyne Puck LITE sensors deliver a high-resolution image to measure and analyze indoor and outdoor environments. Designed for applications that require a sensor with a low weight and compact size, the Puck LITE delivers outstanding resolution and performance for mobile and UAV/drone applications. It provides a full 360-degree environmental view to deliver real-time 3D data.
