Paper Abstract

Dynamic geometric parameter measurement plays an important role in most industries. Research and development on this technology have attracted great attention. We proposed a laser tracking system for measuring development of laser tracking technology, a laser tracking system consisting of three tracking and measuring stations is described in detail. The three stations track respectively three retro reflectors on the moving target, and measure the position and attitude. We built the mathematical model of measurement and developed the algorithm for processing data. According to the homogeneous coordinate transformation, we deduced the formulae for computing coordinates and attitude under different coordinate systems. Some key techniques of the measuring system are discussed at the end of the paper.
