Abstract

Objective A review of the generic instrument types providing sub millimetre measurement capabilities at scales of greater than 1 meter and typically in excess of 10 metres. The report covers the fundamental technologies used, with consideration and analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each. Scope The focus is on optical, laser based instruments with descriptions of laser-based spherical coordinate measurement machines, such as laser trackers and laser radar, as well as optical triangulation devices such as photogrammetry and indoor GPS. More traditional optical alignment instruments and large CMMs are also included for completeness. The effects of environmental factors on measurements are also discussed.
