Paper Abstract

The paper outlines the application and development of LEICA's triangulation and tracking systems to generate the reference 3D data needed for the static calibration of industrial robots, such as those used in automobile manufacture. Improvements in static positional accuracy are, for example, critical to the success of off-line robot programming, and some successful test measurements have been achieved with the motorized theodolite system, SPACE. Knowledge of a robot's dynamic performance is also required before it can be improved. Since the theodolite system is not suited to dynamic measurement, use of the interferometric laser tracking system SMART has also been investigated. This can potentially solve both static and dynamic tasks and could offer a more universal solution. Developments are less advanced here, but initial results are encouraging.
