The Red Bull Air Race is to use laser measurements for precise track planning and mapping. A team of RIEGL laser experts recently scanned the entire Red Bull Ring racetrack with its RIEGL RiCOPTER remotely piloted aircraft system for airborne laser scanning. From there, the team created a 3D point cloud which gathered information for the Red Bull Air Race aviation team.

Watch the new RIEGL Video offering some insights into data acquisition mission at the Red Bull race track in Spielberg and see the impressing point clouds!

 

The information collected is being used for the track-planning tool with 100% realistic scenery. The mapping also takes potential obstacles that could be in the vicinity of the flight path into account. This data is then developed into a simulator for the aviation department with obstacles realistically placed, thanks to the high precision data collected.
