Paper Abstract

At the Federal Institute of Technology at Zurich, an interdisciplinary research team in collaboration with the industry have developed a robot-theodolite. Such future instruments have not to be operated. They detect the target points automatically by themselves, calculate their coordinates in whatever geodetic system and telecommunicate the results to whatever spot in the field and/or a dataprocessing centre. This paper deals with the techniques of such instruments, with possible applications and with metamorphic influences on the surveyors' profession.
