The RIEGL VMX-RAIL is a fully integrated Mobile Laser Scanning System for track mapping and clearance surveying. The triple scanner system design allows for utmost efficient capturing of dense, accurate, and feature-rich data.

Take advantage of the VMX-RAIL for:
• accurate surveying in challenging environments
• reliable capturing of railway infrastructure, topology, and vegetation
• platform speed up to 130 km/h for operation during regular rail schedules
• reduction of scan shadows by triple scanner system design
• flexible camera options to complement scan data with high resolution imaging
• data export to Third-Party Rail-Processing Software Packages

Main Features
  • rugged measuring-head for reliable long-term operation in harsh environments
  • equipped with 3 VUX-1HA²² High Accuracy Laser Scanners
  • optimized scanner orientation to increase the field of view and to minimize scan shadows
  • unique crossed point cloud pattern along 360 deg of the clearance profile for improved feature extraction and small object detection
  • 5.4 MHz pulse repetition rate and 750 lines per second resulting in up to 13.000 pts/m² in approximately 3m range at 80 km/h platform speed
Main Applications
  • Rapid and Safe Data Capture with Minimal Disruption to Network Schedules
  • Rail Infrastructure Asset Management
  • As-Built Surveying
  • Track and Infrastructure Monitoring
  • Clash Detection Simulation and Clearance Analysis
  • Railway Planning and Engineering
