The RIEGL VZ-400i is a cutting-edge 3D Laser Scanning System which combines a future-oriented, innovative new processing architecture and internet connectivity with RIEGL’s latest waveform processing LiDAR technology.


This real-time data flow is enabled through dual processing platforms: a dedicated processing system for simultaneous acquisition of scan data and image data, waveform processing and system operations, and a second processing platform which enables automatic on-board registration, geo-referencing, and analysis to be executed in parallel. The VZ-400i provides an integrated 3G/4G LTE modem, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet communications hardware.

With its integrated orientation sensor (MEMS IMU, compass, and barometer) the VZ-400i’s up to 1200 kHz pulse repetition rate can be fully utilized in many environments and orientations. The system provides a high range of flexibility by supporting numerous external peripherals and accessories via its integrated USB ports and stable mounting points.
