Paper Abstract

Special tanks are important for energy source storage and transport. Based on the research of current calculation techniques for special tank capacity, a new principle and technique for special tank capacity calculations is discussed, which converts the capacity calculation into setting out and sets up a tank coordinate system. It completes all the work with a surveying robot online control mode. The new technology can calculate the tank capacity fast and precise and avoids the disadvantage of traditional measurement technology. Furthermore, special a software system is compiled, which can measure, calculate, adjust and create report tables automatically. Finally, the measurement accuracy and efficiency of the measured data are analyzed.
